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
SuperTyphoon Angela--November, 1995
Don't forget other Weather Machines , Computer Models and the Weather
Channel for further info on severe weather!
Weather Watch Status Report
are remarkable in their clarity and diversity and make up the Bulk of the
Western "Weather Wall" here at Miami University. While many weather
machines provide more colorful maps & charts, FAX charts are Excellent
for Display, Especially When Using Black & White Printing. These
charts are in TIFF format and can be easily opened with Graphic
Converter . Most of the charts need to be rotated 90, 180, or 270 degrees
for Viewing! If you need information on reading surface charts, go Here .

General Thoughts: The Weather Channel provides an array of satellite
movies that can't be found anywhere else on the web. Besides being so geographically
diverse, the movies provide very impressive visual contrast with blue oceans,
brown landscapes and white clouds. The sat loops are animated gifs.
GOES 8 (Wide coverage across N. America into the Atlantic)
GOES 10 (West coast, central & east Pacific)
The Weather Channel- An impressive
collection of of low resolution images, many from unique locations around
the world. Not so good for printing, but great for viewing because of the
pleasant contrast between the ocean, land, and enhanced cloud tops.
Barograph Tracing, Hurricane Hugo, September 1989, St. Croix.
Each main vertical interval (west-east) represents six hours--the pressure
is in millibars. As Hugo bore down on the island, colleagues did not think
they would survive the night! The next morning, some described the scene
as what they would expect to see after a nuclear war. There was not a leaf
left on standing trees!
