I use a few sources that might be a bit much for some or just the nerdy/science stuff people are looking for.

The University Of Wisconsin's Real Earth is simply amazing - 500+ data layers you can put over a Google Map. The Apple and Android mobile apps are free but you almost need know the desktop web version first to make sense of it all. I use the storm total layer that's 4 days past (if I recall correctly).

http://realearth.ssec.wisc.edu

Climendo is great but needs to be understood. It's not fast because it takes as many of several data sources it can to make a report. You can drill down or in including knowing who/what is most and least accurate.

Ventusky is great via web or app.

This is all detailed stuff but I'm a board member of a private ski area, trail builder, and am involved in outdoor events so that info is important. I'm also in a network of trail condition reporters so we use better data to make our calls on whether or not facilities will be open or closed, and if events will be cancelled.

It's kind of the opposite here but the system still has benefits. I make the weather guesses, do trail grooming, and prepare the gear for use. Very often that works out like yesterday when the grill was just lit and food ready to cook when I pulled into the driveway around 17:00.

Our local TV station has a very good app. That said, in the morning I just say "Alexa, what's the forecast?" :-)
