New National Weather Page

We're reorganizing the weather.  

The Albany page, which was always a combo of National, State and ALY weather is going to be more like the other weather "children" (BVT, BUF, BGM, OKX) with more ALBANY SPECIFIC maps and info.

Some of what was on the ALY page will go to a statewide weather page.

The rest will go on a national page. I'm thinking it would be cool to have NWS point forecasts and resort snow reports for maybe 12-14 noam ski destinations.

Maybe two from Wasatch, two from Tahoe, 2 from Colorado, PNW, etc.  A good representative sample that you could click through to figure out who is getting the goods.  We could bring in regional radars too.

I'd like nominations for which areas to feature. Think about wx variety and well as the mountain itself. You may love both Alta and the Bird, but maybe different mountains could give a better more diverse picture. If Powmow is lower elevation or far away maybe it's Alta and PM or whatever.  The goal would be to highlight a great list of weather diverse mountains.

Weather geeks and ski freaks welcome.

Weather radar is great, but it is not always accurate in in the higher mountains of the west..You tend to get a lot of false negatives...

You can look at all of the different elevations on NOAA.

I've been watching the weather back there and it's pretty neat how different things have been regionally in the east so far.

This looks like a fun project Harv.

Re: New National Weather Page

Weather radar, like anything else, you have to read. And practice it. I can look at a the NY radar and tell you if it is snowing on top at Gore.

I love the point forecasts.

NOAA is such a great source of weather info.  The maps are excellent.

NYSB weather pages merely aggregate NOAA forecasts, data and maps. And now we are trying to do the same with data from Environment Canada (EC).

I think the national page could be cool.

Re: New National Weather Page

All I see are the pretty colors on a weather radar. :D

I'm seriously lacking in weather reading skills.

The guys I know around here are talking about an atmospheric river possible for this area starting around the 20th. I don't know how they are seeing this but it sounds sexy to me.

When you get a constant wind direction (fetch) over the Pacific it picks up moisture. Sometimes areas of Low pressure are embedded in the flow..

Re: New National Weather Page

All radar has issues. Both Plattekill and Gore are far from the radar source and are often getting snow when the radar shows none.  Still, if you study specific radars and follow up by reading weather reports or going skiing you come to learn what radar is telling you.

Jason a question for you or other serious mets... do you like prefer enhanced infrared or standard:
