    Looking to possibly purchase some weather software for the computer and wanting some feedback from other members on what they prefer using. I see software such as WSV3, Weather Defender, Interwarn, GREarth, GR Level 3 etc coming up in google searches, any thoughts on these? Also, preferences for EURO Data.

    Thanks!

    On a premium side, for Euro data, you have eurowx.com (i dont use, not sure but they offer a trial) and weatherbell along with the free source from weather.us / wx.graphics.

    On the software side:
    GRLevel is the standard for storm chasers & radar.
    WSV is new but promising.
    GRearth is like GrLevel with a lot more stuff but it requires a monthly subscription to AllisonHouse.

    I have searched high and low, and installed the majority of the power weather applications, and outside GRLEVEL and hopefully WSV, the weather software market is extremely lacking of quality products.

    Thanks for the response! Recently have signed up with WeatherBell and although the navigation is somewhat confusing to me, enjoying it so far. WSV is next on my list. :]

    Yeah, at the time, Ryan had modified a wordpress template I believe, and just started getting everything he could on there. I always complained to him about that god-awful navigation, haha. Looks like Weatherbell have no interest in making it nicer, either, even after he moved on to the weather.us brand.

    WSV3 and GRLevelx are the best programs in my opinion!.

    I would not recommend GRLevelx at all. Paid $80 for it only for it to stop working and can not get any help with it. It's a major rip off.
