Another vote for WeatherUnderground. I especially like their chart depiction for the forecast for the coming 10 days--temps, winds, expected precip are all on a very intuitive graphic. Though I don't trust any forecast much beyond 5 days--after that I suspect it's more climatology than weather.

A gripe about the way newspapers give the forecast weather:
"Tuesday: High of 87, Low of 60" Now, I can guess the 87 will likely occur on Tuesday afternoon, but when is it going to be 60? The night of Mon-Tues, or the night of Tues-Wed? And when I look at a more detailed graph, the "60" sometimes actually occurs at about 4AM on Wednesday, which apparently is considered "Tuesday night".
