    Seeking a good weather program/site

    I am trying to find a site or program that can provide good weather reports including recent radar images to my Treo 650 (Verizon).

    Weather.com is okay but hard to navigate since it is not designed for PDA access. I currently subscribe to their Gold service for desktop access but it does not work well on the PDA.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Try weatherunderground. They do have a PDA version at http://mobile.wunderground.com/ and there is a radar image you can view.

    I like the NOAA site. The web pages have a nice snap to them. The pages load quickly even with the photos.

    have you tried www.treoalarm.com. It will download the weather from us national weather service, canadia weather office or yahoo weather.
    in addition, it's an alarm so it will turn your radio on download the weather (5 day forecast with high resolution graphics) from the site of your choice and sound an alarm to wake you up. the alarm also increases in volume if it's not answer.
    you can also set different alarms at different times of day,week,and so on.
    and free over the air update to the app. .
    it got high ratings over at mytreo.net

    you should check it out!

    I don't like to use data on my 650 too much. Is there a weather app today view plug-in type app that will grab and download the five day forecast whenever you hotsync?
