Weather Service Data

The National Weather Service provides weather, water, and climate data, forecasts and warnings. A National Mosaic view of National Weather Service (NWS)’s radar imagery allows interactivity with the display providing you with the ability to customize the way you “look” at weather. Called RIDGE2 (Radar Integrated Display with Geospatial Elements, version 2), the radar image can be layered with geospatial elements such as topography maps, highways, state/county boundaries, and weather warnings. Outside of this interface, a user can also make use of this radar mosaic image overlay to add to user’s geobrowser of choice.
