Are there any good free wx tools out there that you guys would recommend?

By you guys I mean everyone.
No, I really wouldn't recommend any.... the ones with real meteoroligical value won't be free
Not all of us have our parents money though.


What exactly are you looking for Stewart? Wunderground.com has good radar, and http://www.rap.ucar.edu/weather/ has models, real time information on temperatures, dewpoints, and winds, plus upper air soundings which are always fun.
Hurricane alley is only 6 bucks a month i think, and it has great information on hurricanes such as models and wind fields and so forth. It does it for all basins too not just the atlantic. Ive seen some good software but i cant afford the arm and legs that they charge for it.
I'm looking for stuff mostly that's downloadable. I already checkout weather underground, and the noaa sites, and stuff. I was just curious as to what else was out there.
http://www.swiftwx.com, great radar place.... very cheap as well.

Sooner I told him how I felt, and it's true... the real good stuff isn't free... and I WOULDN'T recommend any of the free stuff
A couple of good catchall locations I like to use are:

http://www.weathermatrix.com
http://www.wxchat.com

Along with wunderground.com

I think there are definitely some worthwhile free sites out there.
