I've been trying to watch for cold fronts to come thru Texas and was having a hard time finding an easy way to see when one is coming. I have a good radar map app for severe weather and the weather channel one that does a good job with basic weather prediction, but neither shows fronts. I know all you duck hunters are part time meteroligist so what apps or web sites are you guys using?

The evening news will typically show fronts/ high and low pressure. So I amagine a local weather channel website would serve you well. Or maybe the farmers almanac
If at first you don't succeed, shoot again.

noaa has a bunch. I just have the simple radar version for quick views of precip and forecasts. You might find something. I agree that nothing beats watching a local forecast map for oncoming fronts.

I have several weather apps on my phone but use Weather Bug 99% of the time. It has an excellent radar, shows hourly forecasts and has a details tab for sunrise/sunset, wind speed/direction and dew point & wind chill.

Good tip guys, I have been using Accuweather and while it is nice it does not have all the features I was looking for. The bug looks pretty good and I will start to use that as well. Here we need it to check the weather before we head out fishing or crabbing as well as duck hunting.
