If you go to www.wunderground.com and use a VI zip code to get a forecast page - the radar on there is very useful.
Click on the radar image -- use your cursor to define a smaller box around your particular area - leave plenty of room to the S,E,and N -- [you can now save that particular viewing area in Bookmarks,Favorites whatever you use] - it can also be animated to show you the last 30 min. so you can see squalls coming and their direction.

DixieChick: If you read up on meteorology and learn about the information the various maps provide, you can get a lot from Crown Weather: http://www.crownweather.com/?page_id=29. You will feel like you slept at a Holiday Inn Express!!

You can look here for up to the minute weather. No radar....yet.

That's my weather station on the north side of STT.

You can try out the cam too but I think the lens is too short. It's a Panasonic 131 on a ledge in the kitchen. I plan to upgrade on my next trip.

Let me know if you log on and how it works for you.
