|Why Bother with all this?
WEATHER WATCH The premise
of ALL this is two fold, Amateur Radio Weather Awareness (ARA) and Weather Watching Logistics (WWL). Logistics, allowing the WX enthusiasts who enjoy formulating their own forecast and placing meaning around weather conditions affecting their area. After all, can you really do worse than the sensationalizing Media Hacks getting paid for it?
Few events in our day to day life are less controllable than Weather.
It affects us daily and there's nothing we can do about it except of course, avoid it. Understanding how weather develops and moves helps one to forecast accurately. You need to be aware of what's coming you're way, it could possibly save lives, prevent surprises and prevent station damage.
TEXAS WEATHER WATCH This site helps me and I hope others, to know what and when weather is approaching. TWW gives the Amateur Radio community one place to compile weather stats needed for forecasting. I am adding information and tools as they become available to help this effort.
Links are provided to all the major weather players. Bookmark these links and use them as needed. Both local and national displays help zero in on conditions affecting you're area, including Doppler, Rapid Fire displays of personal weather stations and antimated maps.
