Table of Contents (I made this page to have downloads available for immediate viewing. Sometimes things work smoothly, other times, well..........On a slow link, these downloads can take a long, long, time. Often, not all of the links load. Be patient! It's often worth the wait!

Main Street Weather (Weather Home Base!!)

Here is a collection of the weather links I visit on a daily basis, some more than others depending upon the weather situation and time of year. I use these sites in my teaching and to fulfill my insatiable appetite for the weather. There are a wide variety of sources ranging from the best weather machines to regional weather, FAX, radar, single frame satellite imagery, computer model forecasts, hurricanes, typhoons, MPEG movies (visible, infrared & water vapor) and buoy data from the Atlantic, Pacific, and Gulf of Mexico. Just what did weather fanatics do for fun before the invention of the internet?

Water Vapor Loops are ideal for viewing many phenomema. Look for subtle moisture feeds, eddies, dry slots, large upper level low pressure systems, troughs, jet streaks, and short waves

A Water Vapor Loop of the US., Gulf of Mexico and Eastern Atlantic. From NOAA (GOES 8 Sector 1/2 Hour Updates).The whiter the clouds, the more moisture available. The darker areas are dry . If you have a mac and get a "broken-link," click on the map & download Quicktime 3.0, QuickTime MPEG Extension 1.0, and the Quicktime Plug-in 2.0 for the Power Macintosh. If you see something interesting in the tropics, visit the HURRICANE SITE.

Latest 500 mb Analysis

The latest 12 hour 500 mb forecast from UNISYS . How do the cloud patterns, jet stream, trough and short wave positions compare with the water vapor loop above? The map may be over 12 hours old when viewed.

Severe Weather Links (Tornadoes, Thunderstorms, Weather Watches)

Don't forget other Weather Machines, and Computer Models for further info on severe weather!

Latest 500 mb analysis. While one map can't possibly tell the whole story, upper air maps often provide clues as to where conditions are "ripe" for severe weather outbreaks. Upper air winds flow parallel to the black height lines. Look for "dips" in these black height lines and vorticity as designated by the colors. This map is used to help predict where strong thunderstorms will occur.The "redder" the color, the more spin and lift in the atmosphere, which can result in severe weather.
