    Hey all...

    Don't know how usefull this topic is... but if your Locale is like mine it might be.

    Up here on the hill in G-Vegas (Gardner) it's hard to find a consistent weather forecast. I'm 60 miles from Beantown (where all the TV stations are) 30 miles from the county seat (Worcester and the 'local' radio stations) so weather broadcasts are as useless as commercials.

    So while surfing the web for something else...low and behold I stumble across this little gem:
    http://www.airport-data.com/airport/GDM/weather.html

    Best thing to have stumbled across, told quite a few friends and they added it to their 'favorites' as well to get a real close weather forecast.

    So if you are in the same boat... and have a small airport close by it may be worthwhile to locate the airport closest to you... keep in mind even if you don't think there is an airport close by... it also lists heliport approved sites (from hospitals to personal ones)

    For those in the same situation and are looking for good weather info, check it out... and post if it's on the money. ;)

    "For frequent Flyers" Keep in mind that site also lists the "big ones too" so If you are flying int o LA from Boston or vice versa.... you can check on the conditions. ;)

    N Adams rose 1 degree... Gardner 2 degrees Humidity vary quite a bit???

    Might not seem worth the time... but if you have a boiler or an old smoke dragon these numbers can help with how to fire accordingly...
