Free Downloadable Weather Posters
The Weather Underground (my all time favorite weather site) has created 16 downloadable images to that not only look cool (if you like retro style images, that is) but are educational as well. The Weather Underground meteorologists and designers teamed up to bring you the science behind some of the most spectacular weather phenomena in a simple and artistic way. Double Red Rainbows, Dust Devils, Lenticular Clouds, Auroras, Fog and the Kelvin Helmholtz Instability are some of the posters you'll find here. Click on a poster to learn more about the conditions and to download free high-res print and postcard files.

Thanks, rhiannon!

Glad to be of help. :-)

Thanks!
I couldn't see the bookmarks extension for Opera - there were 4 extensions with the name "Bookmarks" in them - but apparently none of them were able to export/import. Some of them had cloud storage.
The Chrome extension worked fine.
