When I’m feeling surrounded by bad sitcoms, stupid movies, and unimportant news, I can (assuming I don’t grab a book or turn to my computer) count on The Weather Channel to provide me with a reliable viewing experience.  And now MySpace users can count on a sort of online equivalent.

According to a press release, The Weather Channel Interactive was “selected by MySpace (www.myspace.com) as its weather provider.  As a result of the agreement, MySpace has developed a weather section powered by weather.com, available through a link on its home page and on every user’s personal home page.”

The release later continues, “The MySpace weather section (http://weather.myspace.com/) will feature current conditions and 5-day forecasts as well as national and regional maps, weather headlines and weather and climate related video content.  Users will have the ability to select weather conditions for up to five locations so that they can easily track weather associated with their friends and family.”

Compared to all the dancing pixies and glitter that litter MySpace, this is an extremely practical development.  Of course, typing weather.com into the address bar wasn’t a huge inconvenience, and there are also weather apps for Facebook, so don’t look for this to turn any sort of tide.

Hat tip to Mashable’s Andy Angelos.

    I live in Lake Charles La. And everyone keeps forgetting that Rita hit Cameron and Calcasieu parish and did a lot of damage. We are now facing this again. Katrina is the only hurricane that is ever mentioned when it comes to La because of the damage in Nola. Even though this hurricane seems to be acting more like Rita did right before it hit. A lot of people here believe that we are forgotten when it comes to damaging hurricanes. I do understand that there was a lot of damage from Katrina its just we would like to know from yall on the weather station believe could be the amount of damage possible around here and not just about nola. Is there any way possinle yall could tell us what my be in store for us also when you mention nola. A lot of people around here would really like to know because we are still very much still recovering in these 2 parishes also. Thank you for reading this and I hope you may be able to help us also.
