Updating my bookmarks for 2005....anything I should add?

Dec 26, 2004
Booneville, KY
I just got a new PC and I have been re-adding all of my old bookmarks for the severe weather related sites I visit and use each Spring. I figured while I was in the process, I'd ask you folks what sites you normally use and find most helpful (especially in the forecasting, nowcasting and cyberchasing areas of emphasis) so I might find something I don't yet know about.

Here's some of the things I normally use as of now:

Radar: COD Analysis page, Weather Tap, RAP, Plymouth State NIDS, Weather Underground

Models/Analysis: RAP, COD, Earl Baker's page and of course the SPC site

Warnings: COD and IWIN

Satellite: RAP

Sfc/upper air: RAP

And for extended severe weather outlooks, I like the CPC page.

So, what else might I find helpful and should add to my list for this year? It's always nice to have extra sources for info and I also thought this thread might be beneficial to other people here, especially newer members. And besides, I am really bored right now, so anything weather related takes my mind off the fact it's still February! :D

Thanks in advance for any recommendations.

Here are some good ones that I use. You probably have a lot of these but just in case you don't...
