It never rains in Seattle. Seriously. In the last two months we've had one day of rain. While I'm not dying for six months of gray, drizzly weather I still wonder when we'll next see some of the wet stuff. Today we'll take a look at mashups that help answer the age old question "What's the weather going to be today?" These include mashups that give weather forecasts, conditions for aviation and boating enthusiasts, and even a couple that have fun with the weather. Read below for more information. By the way, it looks like Seattle won't get significant rain until next week.
