It's really amazing. You can even find online tutorials that teach you how to run, read and interpret several governments models. There are even weather forums where people who are educated in this stuff help you learn and will answer your questions, etc. I'll never have more than a basic grasp of this stuff since i didn't go to school for it, but > about 72-96 hours out it's way better to do this yourself than rely on TV IMO. It's been very helpful in trip planning and outdoor stuff.
