The WS4000 emulator is a feature-rich, multithreaded, customizable simulator of the 4000 which can be run on a Windows based operating system. It utilizes the GPU capabilities of modern graphics cards to display current weather information just as the 4000 did, including National Weather Service zone forecasts, short term forecasts, weather warnings and advisories, current observations parsed from METAR reports, and radar, all while being highly customizable and far more user friendly than the original hardware. The quasi-operational aspect of the application lies in its differing implementation (software vs. hardware), as well as methods of data retrieval, while retaining a visual presentation highly identical to the original WeatherSTAR 4000 hardware. The application has been received not only as an impressive piece of weather dissemination software for the home or work environment, but also as a source of strong nostalgia for those who sought weather information before the widespread growth of the internet. Example screens are displayed below, and the application will be demonstrated during an oral presentation at the conference.
