New Look

The colors were starting to annoy me, and seemed to clutter things up, so I got rid of them. I was/am in the process of cleaning up a lot of other things in the code that are giving me huge headaches as far changing and updating the site... So most if not all of the pages will have the new look,, but right now, something is acting stupid on the server ond not letting me push the file to the server. All the tropical data for the 2005 tropical season has been uploaded and can be found on the Tropical Page still doing some work on the maps but they are functional.

Some Updates...

It has been a while, but we have added "Recent Weather" conditions, which is a collection of the conditions for select locations for the past 10 days. This is an initial release, and it has some issues, but were working on it...

Finally the links pages have been updated, they are cleaner, and I think, easier to use...

Current Weather Conditions

Did some changes to clean up the current weather display. basically changed it to an image, so that it may be used elsewhere... Working on the back side of that to provide a history of weather conditions for selected sites in the area, and hopefully extend after that to cover major US cities, and elsewhere...

We Got Weather

I was looking around the weatherdudes site the other day, as well as looking at other sites like Philadelphia Weather, and I realized the one thing that we were missing was the actual weather... I was already working on data pulls from the National Weather Service, and I realized that I could put the current weather on our site real easy, so I did it as you can see on the front page... Currently it is only displaying KORF, Norfolk International Airport, but we are pulling data for other sites as well. So enjoy that for now, and I will be adding a current weather page with locations around the area as well as other locations... Planning on current conditions as well as historical data...

I am being picky

Well I don't like the map, I guess thats could be just me... I have some better ideas on what to do with it, I just have to figure out how to present it...
I did work out some data collection stuff in the process of building the map thing, that collects NWS observation data, Dave and I are discussing how to put it to better use, and we have a couple of idea's that may be in a preview mode soon. Dave is trying to talk me into keeping the map thing, and I could be convinced, just not in the current state...

Oh yeah the links pages are still ugly, and I still don't like them, and they will be changed... I am leaning to a similar kind of thing just presented better, and much better descriptions, that part will keep Dave busy :-)

Data data everywhere....

Okay I got it figured out
All those weather sites in a database, and nothing to do with them... How about a clickable map like this one WMO_MAP...

Keep in mind that it is the first try, and I really need to figure out a few things, and clean it up a bit... It currently only covers the mid-atlantic states, but when I get it better figured out and cleaned up I will add more locations U.S. and Global...

Take it for a spin, and let me know what you think... Paul


Oh yeah, the link pages are still ugly...

What to do what to do...

I have a listing of all WMO stations, all 6.614 of them in a database, now I am trying to figure out what to do with it. I am thinking about using google maps and creating an interactive map of at least the stations in the united states, with an a link to the the site, and possibly the data from that site. Right now it is a one of those hey that would be cool kind of things...
I had to modify the guest-book, to deal people trying to elevate their site rankings on google, yahoo and MSN, any guest-book entries will have to be approved prior to posting. I also removed the guest-book view page from indexing, so it should not be an issue anymore...
Still messing with the links pages, I think I have a better way to display them and categorize them...
Next big maintenance project is making the glossary searchable, and providing hot links to the glossary form other articles...

Just The Facts

Answering some requests that the facts were to random, we added the facts page. For those of you that like the facts randomly displayed, they are still there on the front page. For those of you that want to see all the facts they are on the facts page, it kind of ugly right now, but I am working on a better way of presenting them, but hey at least they are alphabetical.

Ugly Links

Okay I am big time into resuing code that I write, and somtimes I will reuse ugly code...
I have taken a look at how I did the links pages here, and other places, and I am convinced that they are UGLY. So while I continue to work on the weather data pages, I am going to expend some effort on those ugly links pages, and hopefully make them more usable...
Please don't hate me or my links because they are ugly, they do work and will take ou to all kinds of good places...

New Stuff...

I am working on some new stuff, mainly data stuff, like gatehering NWS data, so we can see how correct Dave actually is... :-)
Actually it will be more of a historical refrence kind of thing to start with, then I'll go on to do more... I haven't decided what yet...
