I wanted to bring attention to a very nice web based application one of our members have been putting together. It has become part of my everyday use and is the first application I open up each day to get a quick run through of what's going on.
You can find it by clicking the WXSCOUT link on the bottom of the home page, or go to www.wxscout.com.

LOL, I know this is like 18 months late but I am not tracking anything on my site that isn't a point, line or polygon. Hurricane warnings are defined by weather areas (usually counties) and I need more work to include that. Trust me, I have thought about it because it would make watch boxes look much nicer on my site.
What I DID just recently add though, because I was tired of LSR's showing up 24-48 hours late is that IF a tornado warning indicates that a tornado is on the ground / confirmed I am "adding" a LSR to the list at the initiation point of the warning message as a confirmed tornado. This would have been particularly useful in the recent southern outbreak where tornadoes were not reported until hours after they happened. For high end events there will be a much better indication of where tornadoes happened sooner.
In the message section, it will note that difference and I am likely to make it "look" different at some point. Still, now you will be able to see a "path" so to speak of confirmed locations well before the LSR's show up. I do the same with small hail, waterspouts and funnel clouds, none of which show up on the SPC reports.
SKYSUMMIT: I'm thinking this hurricane season will keep us a little busy. Nothing scientific, but just the idea that it really hasn't been hyped that much.

PinkFreud: No offense to whomever keeps changing the look of this forum, but this white theme is driving me crazy. What happened to the nice blues and grays?

coffeecups: That 'some rain on Friday' became a tornado about 3 miles away (as the crow flies). What a surprise! Glad I didn't have any flooding!

SKYSUMMIT: Yea, other than maybe some rain on Friday, we may be in a dry stretch.

coffeecups: Mother Mary took care of my property again. Even the cat's food and water were by the door instead of floating to the drain. AMAZING!

coffeecups: Good to hear from you Sky. Is anyone else here??????
May 1, 2017 21:22:36 GMT -6
SKYSUMMIT: Actually Coffee..I haven't been around that much either. At least not nearly as much as I used to. Work has been extremely busy! It's a busy busy time in real estate

coffeecups: Came home to Harvey from Slidell. Had a little rain here and there. There was no rain in Slidell when I left at 3:30pm. While in NO EAST, I saw where it looked like it was storming around Covington going towards Slidell. Wet but no rain when I got home

coffeecups: I will eat some strawberries on my cruise in early May---just a few of course, as long as I stay away from my better half.
