http://www.wunderground.com/¬†claims to be the most reliable and accurate source for global weather information and it certainly seems to deliver on its claim. Starting in 1991 as a Telnet (non-pretty text menu) based system showing real-time weather information over the entire world. The system saw revisions and enhancements under many names until in 1995 it separated from it’s host university to become a separate commercial entity and too up residence at it’s current web address.

Now at wunderground you can view real time weather data on your computer or portable device with access to local and international forecasts, maps warnings and live updates in a wide range of ways. You can even incorporate “stickers” in your website like the one I have included in this post.

Wunderground has become such an authority in weather with over 36000 weather stations spread all over the world that in June 2012 it became a part of The Weather Channel group of companies.
