Everyone should know where to get complete up-to-the minute weather information for their locale, including radar, satellite, jet stream, weather maps, and local forecasts. These are among the best links. Some sites can be set specific for any zip code in the nation.
If you're going to use just one home weather page, then use the Wunderground page for your zip code. It provides weather conditions, forecast, radar, satellite, almanac, astronomy information, and links to other weather information sites. If you click on the NEXRAD link you can locate any U. S. weather radar site and current storm information for the entire U. S..
This is the site for one locale: Weather Underground: Sequim, Washington (98382) Forecast.
Then, as a follow up there is The Weather Channel which offers a full area of maps. As an example, here is the animated Pacific Ocean Satellite Map, a favorite for west coast residents that want to know what's coming.
