    I was just wondering where some of you went on the internet to check weather information.
    I like to know if I might run into a rain shower in the middle of brazing during an install.

    I like one called:
    http://www.intellicast.com/Local/USN...s&prodnav=none

    Their home page is:

    Intellicast is okay.

    Try http://www.wunderground.com

    Type in any zip code there and it will take you to a page listing weather stations in or near that zip code with up to date weather info. Has a good radar, also.

    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.

    I use both of them plus http://www.accuwx.com which has an incredible amount of info on it.

    One of our local stations has a great live radar on the web, we watch it very carefully for the boys. If they see the least of a gray cloud, they'll be crying.

    http://www.wxnation.com is the best site give you all the radars and weather reports.
    The premise of ventilation is that the OA is clean or of sufficient quality to be used for dilution. Traditional ventilation is somewhat being threatened by the fact that the EPA is changing the requirements for outdoor air quality which is creating non-attainment zones in what is now becoming a significant portion of the country. That means that buildings in those areas will need to clean up the OA before they bring it into the building.

    The weather forecasting in my area is terrible. In some areas of the country they can tell you within an hour when rain will move in or out but the mountains west of here can hold up weather from moving in and make reliable forecasting difficult. The national weather service has radars across the country that can be accessed easily. The arrows on the left side allow you to browse neighboring radar sites. Here's a link.

    If you use the Firefox browser, there is an extension called forecastfox you can download for free, that can put accuweater info for your zip code in the status bar at the bottom of the browser screen.
