Put your weather links in this thread. That way, as we add new people to this region, they have places to go and learn. Plus, it gives us all a quick reference. As a general rule, most of us abide by "read more and post less." However, for this forum to work...people have to participate. When making a comment, just be sure to add some weather expertise to your discussion(even if it is limited). Instead of saying, "Boy, it is raining outside." Try this, "The National Weather Service radar is showing heavy returns over middle Tennessee." Instead of saying, "The weather models are showing a torch," try this..."The GFS is showing warm temps at hour n." Read as much as you can. Google is a great tool. And don't be afraid to ask questions. That's how all of us learned to get to our varying levels of expertise.

Good idea, here's Cold Rain's nifty list that was crowd sourced. Some of these won't be relevant to our area but many are.

Edit: well that paste kinda failed, stupid iPad. I'll attempt again.

With the winter season fully underway, I thought it would be a good idea to create a thread that could contain links for the various websites that provide weather data, such as model guidance, climate data and research, weather blogs and commentary, etc. I have seen several requests in various threads for this kind of data (I have made some myself) over the past few days, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread we could link to.

If this compilation already exisits, please feel free to delete this thread and point me to the correct place. Otherwise, hopefully, this will turn out to be a helpful resource.

Please post your favorite websites with a brief description, if you are so inclined.

Some great links in there...I have been trying to learn more concerning model guidance and how to interpret it. So glad there is a TN valley forum now, I hope to contribute to it in any way I can!

 

Here are a couple of links to Beau's website and social media- he is a bit north of the TN valley but still includes West Tn and Western Ky in his discussions, he offers some interesting analysis and has quite a large following over there.

Good to see you on here, WTNWx. As time goes by, it will be nice to continue to add some links (like those) that are unique to our region. And absolutely please continue to participate on the subforum. That is what will make it work.

I put all of these on the "master" list at the top.  That way we have all of them in one place.  At some point I will classify them...at some point.  Excellent links so far!

 

 

 

Cool tool here,one of the mets posted it the other day on the main board,you can change the url also

 

Edit:It updates every 3 hrs and hold your left click down and you can scroll the world

Thanks for mentioning that.  Excellent site.  I will put that on the master list above.  You have some TN Valley connections, yes?!  So, even better.

LOL! Thanks!

Yes, when I was 1 year old, I moved from Savannah to Nashville and lived there through the 1st grade. We moved to Paris TN for the 2nd through 4th grades, then moved back to Nashville and lived until I went to college at UT Knoxville. My sister still lives in Nashville. At least half my life has been in Tennessee. 

 

Yes guys, if you haven't visited my site, give it s shot, I've got more pages (+1200) of weather information than you have time to look at. :-)

Here are a few websites I look at that I didn't see on the list.

 

Meteogram Generator:

 

http://www.meteor.iastate.edu/~ckarsten/bufkit/image_loader.phtml

 

Cool Wx (I use this site to look at precip type and accumulation for NAM, RUC, and GFS, also has a lot of other stuff like mesoscale analysis stuff - temp, dewpoint, etc.) Only problem is that they only have two sites for TN: BNA and MEM.

 

 

Example from 18z NAM for BNA:

http://coolwx.com/

 

This next website is a another TN weather forum but it also has some nice maps on the side for the WRF Simulated Radar, real-time radar, temp, jet stream, satellites, and many many another things. I look at this website a lot and I know some of you have been on it before and are members.

 

http://www.tnweatherspot.com/

 

Winter Prediction Center's page(WPC) has probability maps for snow, freezing rain and other stuff.

Also here's the Mesoanalysis page from SPC. I saw the link to the SPC Main page but I thought it would be good to include this one.

 

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/mesoanalysis/new/viewsector.php?sector=17

 

Weather Glossary that has definitions for just about all weather terms:

 

http://www.weatherzone.com.au/help/glossary.jsp

 

 

Included in the master list above...Thanks!

 

Also, finally put our sites into categories...

Think I shall pin this one again.....

 

Thank you for pinning this again.  A LOT of useful information in this thread, especially for the newer members that want to learn.

 

This is a link for the Euro maps (free), along with ensembles.  It's not detailed, but handy none the less.

This is a link for the composite climate maps people use when trying to predict the future based on how the atmosphere acted in the past under certain conditions.
