What we have here folks is all of the information that is offered by the Weather Channel or WeatherBug sites without all of the ads and clutter.  I find going to this site is always a thoroughly enjoyable experience.  I get all of the information I need quickly and am able to move on to other things.  If you have never tried this site I strongly urge you to do so.  One of the few things I have seen that the government actually did well.     Very highly recommended!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a scientific agency within the United States Department of Commerce focused on the conditions of the oceans and the atmosphere. NOAA warns of dangerous weather, charts seas and skies, guides the use and protection of ocean and coastal resources, and conducts research to improve understanding and stewardship of the environment. In addition to its civilian employees, NOAA research and operations are supported by 300 uniformed service members who make up the NOAA Corps. The Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere at the Department of Commerce, retired Navy Vice Admiral Conrad C. Lautenbacher, served as the administrator for NOAA until his resignation on October 31, 2008. The deputy administrator, Dr. William J Brennan, is acting administrator until the appointment of a permanent successor.

The National Weather Service (NWS) is tasked with providing "weather, hydrologic, and climate forecasts and warnings for the United States, its territories, adjacent waters and ocean areas, for the protection of life and property and the enhancement of the national economy." This is done through a collection of national and regional centers, and more than 120 local weather forecast offices (WFOs). They are charged with issuing weather forecasts, advisories, watches, and warnings on a daily basis. They issue more than 734,000 weather and 850,000 river forecasts, and more than 45,000 severe weather warnings annually. ...
