About Us

     In this section, you'll learn all about The #1 Weather Page. This page has come a long way from its first version in 1995. This page has gotten better, because web programming is more capable and there are a lot more information sources on the Internet. Of course, this site would not be possible without all the weather data that comes from various sources. You will find that there are frequent updates and changes to this site. If you find any links that are not working, please e-mail me at the following e-mail address: webmaster@wxpage1.com. Thank you for visiting The #1 Weather Page and stop-by again!
