i neglected to mention another option... our AM/FM dash radio. local radio stations can be great sources for severe weather information.

Thanks deepdoc1,

I'm sure BOTH scenarios will be important to me starting next year. Didn't mean to side track your thread. [emoticon]


Less of a side-track, more of a bump-nudge ;-) Serendipity can be a good thing in a thread. Safe travels.

for those of you using Sirius/XM for weather...what channel is that on? the only weather I can find is on the channels that also offer real-time traffic and then just in certain specific cities.

If you are, or have ever been a pilot with a valid medical certificate in the past (at least since I discovered DUATS) you have access to the DUATS automated aviation weather system.

Since weather affects recreational aviation even more than it affects us, I needed access to good weather into. Since I was an aviator in the past, I have access and when planning a trip (in the car, still on the beach WRT rving) I check aviation weather. I listen to 122.0 on the aviation scanner in case I hear anyone giving a pirep. I miss it, but RVing is a similar challenge (doing it and maintaining it) and the rewards are the same: travel the average person will never do. Even living a lifestyle that sets you apart.

Many good sources for things like

Satellite Imagery, WEST,
Satellite Images EAST, with access to both visible and several IR channels.
Good, basic groundling weather
Weather Radar for the Masses

There are others. I use these.

I have used Tornado - American Red Cross app when travelling, and it did help to warn us of a tornado warning in our path so the DW rerouted us.
