WXSpots, a new tool in
the tool chest for SkyWarn operations and weather enthusiasts is now
available! WXSpots is a free, Internet based system designed to quickly
disseminate observed reports of severe weather.
WXSpots is not intended
to replace Amateur Radio. By it's very nature of dependence on the
Internet, WXSpots can't provide data from a severely affected area. On
the other hand, WXSpots can quickly communicate data from those
observers just outside it. It also provides the means to help monitor
local severe weather as it unfolds with many more observers able to
communicate what they are seeing.
WXSpots features include
- The ability to
disseminate observations quickly and efficiently anywhere.
- The ability to add the eyes of SkyWarn enthusiasts who aren't Amateur
- An automated, historical record of recent observations.
- The ability to keep tabs on current observations without necessarily
being near a radio.
