NOAA's National Weather Service - Satellite Images

national.jpg

We use this free service just about everyday, and thought we'd share it with you. The tabbed interface gives you all kinds of weather data, but the main page is stunning. It shows you precipitation for the entire US.

This shows the most recent image of the United States, taken from a NOAA satellite. This image is taken in the infrared band of light and show relative warmth of objects. Colder objects are brighter and warmer objects are darker. Lower layers of clouds, generally warmer and lower in altitude, are colored gray. Colder and generally higher clouds tops are highlighted in colors. IR imagery is useful for determining cloud features both at day and night.

51S8QPC5S8L._SL500_AA280_.jpg

Always a top seller we really like the features of this indoor weather projection clock. With the Oregon Scientific BAR338PA ExactSet Projection Alarm Clock you can keep your pretty little head on the pillow in the morning. Just tap the snooze button & the clock will momentarily project the time on the wall or ceiling in soft red light. You can even rotate the projector forward 90 degrees if needed. And being an ExactSet clock, it automatically sets it's own time, day, & date via the US Atomic Clock in Boulder, Colorado. It automatically connects to the Atomic Clock 6 times a day via it's built-in radio receiver. It even adjusts for Daylight Savings Time & Leap Year. Day-of-week in one of 3 languages - English, French, Spanish Alarm - Crescendo Battery Type - 2 AAA

5 Things Airlines Won't Tell You About Weather Delays

waitinginline.jpg We found this rather interesting article on weather delays and what airports don't want you to know. They mostly use any weather excuse to get out of paying you, telling you why you're late, or just to delay you.

1. If there is a hint of bad weather anywhere, that will be used as the excuse
2 .Weather is considered an "Act of God" and it basically means the carrier owes passengers nothing.
3. When an airline says a flight is affected by weather we have to take it at its word.
4.'Our definition of a weather delay is absurdly loose.
5. 'We're even confused by the way we report weather delays.

41hEkPm8uoL._SL500_AA280_.jpg

This is a really cool weather station and emergency alert radio from Oregon Scientific. We love the fact it combines the two features into one smart unit, and has a bright easy to read display.

  • Monitors all US Hazards and Emergency Alert System (EAS) bulletins, warnings and watches.
  • Receives all NOAA reports, which include advisories on severe weather conditions, civil emergencies, hazards, and evacuation details.
  • SAME technology alerts users to emergencies in their area, and describes the type and duration of the event.
  • Audible and visual alert signals notify you of all levels of messages (Advisories, Watches, Warnings).
  • Large dot-matrix LCD display with backlight displays weather forecast 12 to 24 hour in advance, barometric pressure and ice warnings.
