What’s the Weather Like In Your City?

Posted to Infographics  |  Nathan Yau

Cincinnati's local NBC news provides viewers with a customizable weather dashboard. Look up your city, drag and drop the different modules, and look at the weather from your neck of the woods.

  • For once, Cincinnati gets a little attention for something other than inspidity. +)

  • I think I smell a weather project coming on
