Getting your local weather these days is easier than ever. It's available anywhere, from local weather TV reports, radio broadcasts, the Internet and mobile devices. The local weather you receive can be simple: current measurements of temperature, wind, humidity and precipitation probability, or it can be complex, including long range forecasts and satellite film loops. Most of the websites such as The Weather Channel, Weather Underground and AccuWeather give similar information. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Weather Service website is run by the government. It gives more complex information, maps and images.
