Well, I happen to like for a number of reasons, not the least of which is their modeling suite...that probably wouldn't interest you.
Also, the "hires graphics" section, which is where I have grabbed a number of attachments recently.
They also have Henry Margusity, the severe weather expert, who also happens to know a bunch about hurricanes.
Then there's Joe B and his videos...just ask steve, worth my $.52/day just for his commentary.
They also have a "severe weather" section which is most helpful when t-storms threaten.
They used to give you free access to something known as "Radar Plus" which, in addition to some awesome graphics, has a "future weather predictor" tool, which lets you graphically see what the weather will be three hours from now. ie..when t-storms approach, it will "anticipate" the weather from now up to three hours into the future, on a radar loop. The free trial was pretty cool, but I'm not paying any more than I already am.
What else...you can download forecasts to your PDA...15 day forecasts (worthless, but at least they try)...historical data...what was the weather in your area 3 years ago today...it will tell you...2 billion different types of radar/sat...
I use it mostly for JB and the model suites, but there is a bunch of stuff...just click away and explore. I find something new every day.
EDIT: Just noticed this, but I think it's a nice touch that all NFL teams are wearing a "40" on their helmets!
