Change Location

The Weather Radar is comprised of the two closest radar stations superimposed on this single map. The main map is of the closest location and the next nearest station is scaled and offset to overlay on the main map. The locations are governed by the overall page location. To change the overall location for the page, click on "Change Location" on the top left of the page.

Radar Maps

The colors on the map represent increasing moisture in the air. The scale is on the right of the picture. When nothing is going on, you will see low level of reflections right around the radar station. When there is significant activity, these brown areas do not show up. It is nice to see something even where there is no activity so you know you have the stations loaded.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
