19th Conference on IIPS


A comprehensive source of NEXRAD Doppler radar data

Kenneth Reeves, AccuWeather, Inc, State College, PA; and M. A. Steinberg

AccuWeather.com Professional was designed as a tool for forecast meteorologists to provide a complete array of highly advanced data and computer model information worldwide, all in one place in an easy-to-use, ad-free format. One of the primary benefits of this service is its handling of NEXRAD Doppler radar data.

All 150 local NEXRAD Doppler radars are available in real time, with 20 different parameters available for each, including storm movement and complete storm information tables.

In addition to single-site radars, mosaics are available for metro areas, states, regions and the United States, with seven different types of information available. All radars are available as still images or as animations with 48 frame loops.

The system is designed for flexible real-time access, including full-screen capability with four graphic windows, which all constantly update. Content is available through Internet access or with a hand-held PDA.
