Checked the NOAA site today and noticed the radar pages have a new look. Pretty cool.

Much higher res and more detail on the land itself. I like seeing the major highways, as it is easier to orient where you are at on land. Looks nice.

But about the same on the radar reflectivity.

Glad they updated it as the 57 freeway has been here for some time now :). Anyways, nice to see our tax dollars at work.

Checked out the site some more. Boy, they've added A LOT to the radar site. Check out the loops. National, Short Range, Long Range etc. Click on National Loop, then choose Pacific Southwest, and you will get a moving image from ALL the radars along the coast. Way cool.

Still like Intellicast's Radar Summary. It shows cloud heights and direction.

ABC7 Eyewitless News has a good radar site as well

Nice, but I like the weather undergrounds radar site:

http://www.wunderground.com/radar/radblast.asp?num=6&delay=15&scale=1.000&noclutter=0&ID=NKX&type=N0R&lat=0&lon=0&label=you&showstorms=10&map.x=400&map.y=240&scale=1.000&zoommode=pan&centerx=400&centery=240

The ability to zoom by using your mouse to box the area, arrows that show storm cell directions, and the image is only 2 to 3 minutes old makes this site my favorite.
