All of the text. Change the font to any of these.

Serif: Times New Roman or Georgia
Sans serif: Arial, Trebuchet, Verdana

My fav is Verdana

OK, I dont want to be mean, but Im always absolutely honest with people.

The problem I have with your blog is that Im missing one crucial thing there - added value. I dont see much point in just re-posting stuff from elswhere, in this case the NOAA forecasts. The way I look at it is that if I wanted to have this information, I can simply go to the corresponding NOAA/NWS page myself and read it there (without all the ads you also have on your site and in a more organized way).

This is not a criticism, but Im only trying to give you some feedback. If you want to have a weather related blog you should concentrate on creating your own content, or at least use content from somewhere else, but analyze it in some way - eg. summarize it and comment on it etc. Otherwise, as user I have no reason to really go to your blog because I can read from the source page, getting first-hand information.

Next thing I would do is introduce some structure to the blog, have some tags/categories, otherwise it will soon be very confusing if it is just a long stream of long posts it is hard to find what you are looking for and orient yourself on the page. Right now, even if you posted some own content, it would get totally lost between those other long NOAA posts.

And, please don't post duplicate notifications in other boards.. one is quite enough.

My blog reads more like a timeline highlighting events. I'll occasionally add a link of images, video loop and sometimes link outside sources such as group of temps/rainfall/snowfall etc.
