Weather For You was created to increase awareness about independent weather stations and the role they play in reporting information from areas where official NWS reporting stations don’t currently exist. One of their goals from the beginning was to bring together information from a wide range of private weather stations to a single resource. They also provide support and services to personal weather stations to enhance their web sites with various forecast and weather information products.
