    I used to love using intellicast.com, until it was bought by Wunderground. Wunderground basically dismantled Intellicast. I now primarily use Windy.com. I like it, but it's not good for showing hurricane information or maps or weather fronts.

    What is your favorite weather website?

    I use the "MyRadar" application on my iphone and forecast my own weather.

    That allows me to determine for myself what the weather will be that day. I don't trust forecasts of over 8 hours, even then they're hit and miss. Looking at the radar with fronts and wind and you can tell exactly what the weather will be for a while.

    National Data Buoy Center with its link to the Latest NWS Marine Forecast.
    NDBC - Station 44033 Recent Data
    Other links on the Buoy Center page are good too.

    Windy.com (app and website) are great for visuals. Similar to Ventusky posted above, but Windy has more layers.

    I really like the basic weather.gov website for their simple, informative text forecasts. Few places seem to offer written text anymore.

    Radiofax charts, though seemingly antiquated, are great once you get up to speed interpreting them. Staying on top of them for a few days gives you a deeper understanding of WHY the weather is doing what it's doing and you get pretty good at making your own forecasts.

    Weather underground was great before it got bought and ruined by the weather channel, RIP.
