Windy.com - a lovely and fast weather website

Today, I noticed Weather Underground's hourly forecast won't even display in my web browser anymore.

(Addition, April 24, 2018, 9:53 AM EDT: A fortunately temporary problem, since now the hourly forecast is working again for me. However, it's faster if I use the NoScript web browser add-on to turn off JavaScript.

That trick even works on the typically much slower website Weather.com's hourly forecast. End of addition.)


So, I searched the web for an explanation, and found this helpful forum discussion:

Weather Underground is now useless. | Pilots of America


That's where I learned about Windy.com.

Surprisingly, despite its lovely graphics, it loads very quickly!

Superb!

Addition, June 2, 2018, 3:54 PM EDT: The page I linked to before stopped working right. Here's one that does work right:

Current conditions at Youngstown, Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport (KYNG)




Today, I finally got tired of how sluggish Weather.com is in my web browser.

So, I found this nice, fast alternative:

National Weather Service Forecast for Hubbard, OH

At first, I couldn't figure out how to make it display Fahrenheit instead of Celsius degrees, which was bad, because Celsius sucks for weather.

Fortunately, I was able to make it display Fahrenheit by changing the above page's URL to say "unit=2" instead of "unit=1".
