Weather Underground or Weather Underground

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weather_Underground

The Weather Underground was a far-left Marxist militant organization first active in 1969, founded on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan. Originally known as the Weathermen, the group was organized as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) national leadership. Officially known as the Weather Underground Organization (WUO) beginning in 1970, the group's express political goal was to create a revolutionary party to overthrow the United States government, which WUO believed to be imperialist.

The site is available in many languages, and customers can access an ad-free version of the site with additional features for an annual fee.

My weather station is also on ambientweather.net. It’s 81.9 right now at 11PM EDT at my Florida home.

It’s surprising just how many homes push their weather data on the net.
