If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I'm trying to get the weather here at AccuWeather HQ out to the masses. This started last month when I installed an electronic weather station (see middle of this page). Next up is a webcam.
The AccuCam was finally installed this morning by I.T. guy Brian. It is currently housed in Meteorologist Ken Reeves' office. Below is the first photo taken from the camera this morning.
It is an Axis 2100 Network Camera.
The current placement is a bit precarious so I am going to stop by Lowes Hardware / Wal-Mart on the way home and see if I can find something whereby we can rig it next to the window, without glare, and point it upwards to get the sky / clouds. Also, we need to do some contrast/brightness color correction and we'll work on that. I'll let you know when it's fully online.
A massive fire broke out after an explosion at the GE's Appliance Park in Louisville, Kentucky April 3, 2015. Was it weather-related?
The Ambient WeatherBridge is a breakthough in electronic weather station Internet transmission.
Eastern Pennsylvania was darkened by a massive, triple-decker shelf cloud last night. It was the first thunderstorm of the year, and it did not disappoint.
This year had been a markedly (and thankfully) slow year for tornadoes. That luck ran out last night, when multiple twisters struck Oklahoma and Arkansas.
After a few warm days, the ice was on the move, in some cases causing damage. Here are photos and videos from the Pennsylvania Storm Chasers.
Super Cyclone Pam, at Category 5 Hurricane strength, is razing the island nation of Vanuatu today. How does it compare to historical storms there?
