  1. What are the options to replace the San Juan site permanently or temporarily? 1) Repair if spare parts are available 2) Produce new 88D (restart the production line, unlikely isn't it) 3) Move the phased array radar from Norman 4) Borrow some radar unit from the military (SWR-250 or another phased array unit?) 5) Doppler on wheels?
  2. Could you put a pitot tube on a vane?
  3. The picture of the station is on the page. It's a shack right along the water.
  4. Think some of that footage is from Irma, but I'm not sure

  6. NWS Monterey having a bit of slight fun in their beach hazards statement: https://alerts.weather.gov/cap/wwacapget.php?x=CA1258686A2C28.BeachHazardsStatement.125868A473B0CA.MTRCFWMTR.8a2d9def49f1b1481967ff9eb0a54887 * POTENTIAL IMPACTS: INCREASED RISK OF RIP CURRENTS... SNEAKER WAVES... AND LOCALLY LARGE SHORE BREAK. BEACHGOERS MAY BE KNOCKED OVER... INJURED... OR PULLED OUT TO SEA INTO THE COLD RESTLESS OCEAN.

  9. Yes it's down but if it comes back it'll show up here: https://twitter.com/gwws
  10. Whole lotta potential darwin award recipients on this stream - rewind a bit to see how many people there have been
  11. Non flash version: https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/radar_lite.php?rid=AMX&product=N0Z&overlay=01100000&loop=yes e: Is there a way to get 248nm radar on the cod.edu site?
  12. Difficult to see where the cone is on the last NHC update with the watch/warning lines so here's a screencap of the interactive map:
  13. Yeah but what I picked up from that was that NOAA had something worked out (even though they seemed to avoid flying over Cuba on their last flight) and the Air Force didn't.
  14. Is this accurate enough to say if an AF plane just flew in Cuban airspace?
  15. Does plantation key or Key Largo count as "contiguous United States"?
