Rain or Shine

As the seasons change, from summer to fall, people all over the country rely upon the weather forecast to plan golf outings, tailgating, bike rides, and morning strolls. Weather is fairly unique in that it affects everyone. Whether you are up North and deciding which parka to wear or down south and contemplating SPF 15 or 30, having the forecast at your fingertips is very useful. As such, Web sites that offer extended forecasts are a popular destination. In fact, the top nine weather sites all hosted over 1 million people in August. Thanks to these sites I now know if I should send an Evite for a BBQ at my place this weekend or if I should load up on Netflix.
