Here are three sources of weather information for our neighborhood.


This is the commercial AccuWeather website set up for our neighborhood by ZIP code (22473).  It shows the current weather condtions; you can select HOURLY or DAILY.  You can also click on the RADAR link and see weather radio for our area from the current time to two hours ahead.


One of our neighbors has a weather station that reports current weather conditions as well as conditions for the past 24 hours.
