Weather Explorer

I’m happy to say I’m finally opening up “Weather Explorer”, a project I’ve been working on in my spare time for the past two years.

Nbsp

For the past five years or so, I’ve been looking to find a way to get streaming weather data pushed to me. Originally I had wanted level 2 RADAR products to create my own composites/renders, however I couldn’t find a good source that would push it to me, and even if I could, I didn’t have the capacity to handle processing all of that data in realtime. The IEM makes level 2 data available over HTTP, and grabbing individual files as I needed them to experiment was good enough at the time.
