real-time readonly access to NWS chat room

Post by W5GWA » Tue Apr 12, 2016 6:38 am

As mentioned on the net last night, you can follow the National Weather Service chat room online now.
Iowa State University is hosting this access here:

https://weather.im/iembot/

on the left, pick the Dallas-Fort Worth room to catch our local FWD chat room.
The web page updates every 10 seconds. Your browser needs to support JavaScript by the way.

You can get not only the real-time reports, but the Area Weather Forecast and the Hazardous Weather Outlook (HWO).
You also get ASOS feeds, storm predictions and much more.
Quite interesting..

If you look at their project page (below) lots of other interesting items also..
