Looking for a web based graphic showing progressive precip from current to 10 hours future.

Anything like this available for local weather?

Accuweather.com is pretty feature rich. Beware the ads.

I've had good luck with the 36-hour hour-by-hour forecast on weather.com

What I am looking for is an animated forecast map. Something like this
https://wwwa.accuweather.com/maps-sat...fday=1&large=0

but showing future data at the beginning of the day.

Little storms swirl a lot around here, and it would be helpful to know what to expect for the day's commute.

A weather rock. If it's wet, it's raining. If it's white, it's snowing. If it's gone, there's a tornado.

You know everytime I turn on the weather and go by it, the exact opposite happens. For example, they say it's going to rain. It doesn't. I've gotten to the point that I really don't listen to it anymore.

I believe the weather forecast if they say it is going to rain, then look out of the window and see that it is raining.

It's amazing how many weather persons keep their jobs by constantly being wrong.
