Here's my full review (in addition to my previous comments)...
Browser : Netsheep 4.7... err... I meant Netscape.
OS : WinNT
Browser resolution : 800X600
Speed : decent
: these are all purely suggestions and you don't have to act on them if you don't wish; however, the suggestions I have below are aimed at increasing usability and the design of the site, with the ultimate result of being a site to return to for a visitor.
1. You've already acted on some of the points I nutted out previously - good job. It looks better already now. However, see the four 'regions' - Search, Current Conditions at weathertalk.net, Directory of Web Sites and Latest Weather news headlines. Currently there is a big fat space gap between Search and Directory, and the Latest News Headlines has some space to the right. I would suggest that it looks more symmetrical and much more cleaner if you reduce the width of the Search box to match the length of the TD colored cell containing the Directory of Web Sites, while also forcing the Latest News Headlines to right-justify and make it the same 'width' as the 'Current Conditions at weathertalk.net' box. It looks more uniform and cleaner.
2. I suggest more headlines if possible for the Latest Weather news headlines - at least 5 or 6 or even more. This would also help to reduce the amount of white space below that box.
3. Need to make your 'subscribe to newsletter' form's design/layout consistent with the rest of the site, as also the Top 50 sites - if possible.
4. Back to the spaces problem, this appears throughout the site. Take your time to experiment with different box sizes to rid of the excess space. White space is good, but excess makes a page feel extremely empty. The best way to handle the white space/resolutions problem is to test out, try then use different relative values for everything so that they stretch out to the correct width/height when used at different resolutions.
To be honest, it's not a real biggie, it just affects perceptions of how a visitor views a site.
5. With regards to the DHTML scroller, you might like to check out http://www.bratta.com/dhtml/scripts.asp

That all said and done, the color theme chosen is very good and the layout is generally fine. Good work!
