NWS Burlington, Binghamton, Buffalo, NYC Weather Pages

I'd mentioned last spring that if there was interest we'd try to put together supplemental weather pages for Burlington (No Vt and No Adks) and Binghamton (Central NY and Western Catskills).

I've needed some programming help to get this done, and I've finally scraped up the cash to do it.

I finding some resources /good images / maps for BTV, but not so much for BGM.

If anyone has links, maps or images for either area that they think would be useful for skiers post them here.

With the storm looking like a nail bitter for northern areas, I put up the BTV Weather page.  It's in BETA!  

It's here:

http://nyskiblog.com/weather/btv

It's also linked under the Weather in the top nav bar:

BTV Weather Page

It's not done and likely has some bugs or bad links (<feel free to point them out in this thread).

Once this is done, I'll move on to BGM.

Burlington, Binghamton and Buffalo are up:

http://nyskiblog.com/weather/btv/
http://nyskiblog.com/weather/bgm/
http://nyskiblog.com/weather/buf/

Right now the only way to access them is through the top nav:



We'd especially like to add more webcam links to BGM and BUF.

If you have cam links please post em. Thx.

Eventually we'll do a OKX (NYC) page, to cover downstate ski areas and to help with weather for the flatlands and driving to the mtns.

New OKX Weather page.

OKX is NWS for the county warning area served by Upton NY covering Long Island, Coastal Connecticut, 5 boroughs of NYC parts of Northeastern NJ and downstate NY, as shown on this snowfall map:



Attn snoloco or anyone, another work in progress:

Who's got the best webcams for downstate and northern NJ?

Post ideas for this or any weather page in this thread.

Looking for snow where it can be found…

Thanks for the link Scersk.  For the life of me I don't know why they have to change the URL of these pages every year.

This page:

http://nyskiblog.com/weather/buf/

Has been updated with the new image.

Thanks again.

And then they break the redirect link on the first day with a meaningful graphic!

You're welcome, and it ain't no thang.  That is, I'm very glad to provide even the tiniest bit of help, given that I spend an inordinate amount of time looking at these rather well-compiled weather pages from November–April.
