WeatherDan – FREE Program To Quickly Retrieve Current Weather Conditions and Radar

I love weather apps and WeatherDan is a new one on my plate. What I like about WeatherDan is that it sits in your system tray (bottom right corner where the time is) where you can click on the lightning bolt icon to get the current weather. You get your weather results by entering your zip code.  Right mouse click on the icon and you can get the radar (which can be set for a view up to 192 miles).  Once you have the current weather and/or radar on the screen, simply left mouse click on them and they will disappear. It appears the source for the weather is harvested from due to the link option on the menu that will take you to the web site (to get the complete weather).

NEW Web Site (Dark Sky) That Specializes In Weather Forecasting and Visualization

You may have heard about the Dark Sky weather forecasting app on the Android and iOS platforms. It is well known for its’ down-to-the-minute precision of weather forecasting and visualization. Now you can experience Dark Sky on the web. I encourage you to take a look at Dark Sky and experience the weather (ad free) from a different perspective. Note: Especially play around with the maps (2D and 3D).

This Worked For Me – Get One Year Ad Free Subscription to Weather Undergound With This Code

Weather Underground is claimed to be the internet’s first online weather service.  It is a proprietary weather service that is based on actual cumulative community based weather data points.

I recently came across a code that I was able to use to get a one year ad free subscription to their service. I am also seeing where people were able to use the code to renew their subscription, as well. It is my thinking they have this code floating out there as a promotional gimmick. If you get this to work on your computer and you are also an Android user, you can download/install the Weather Underground App (from the Google Play Store), log in with your credentials, and you will also have an ad free experience on your Android device, as well.

You initially have to sign up for an account, for which you will be sent an email confirmation that will allow you to login to the account. It was after I logged into my account and went to the membership services that I was able to enter the code.  Hope this works for you as well; as, Weather Underground is a great weather service.

A Must Have Tech Product For Your Emergency Bug Out Bag

This week’s tech product is unique in that it is a product that everyone should have in their bug out bag.

When this occurs I would want to get my hands on the Adventurer Ambient Weather WR-11B (multi-purpose emergency device).

An Ad Free Weather Service

There are a lot of really cool (and dependable) weather services out there, but what upsets my apple cart is that when I go to those sites they are driven by advertisements to the point that the only storm I see is the outpouring of the ads.

With a winter storm bearing down on my location in Maryland, I thought it would befitting to present to you an ad free weather service, that I depend on, called the National Weather Service (NWS).

National Weather Service

The National Weather Service (NWS) , once known as the Weather Bureau, is a part of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States government. It is headquartered in Silver Spring, Maryland.

When you get to the National Weather Service homepage simply enter your zip code and press “go” to get the weather information for your location.  If you notice, the page load is fast and there are no advertisements; and, not forgetting to mention all the weather information you will ever need.

As an added bonus, my brother Tim, who serves as a weather consultant in Pumpkin Center, MD,  pointed out to me, on the NWS site, you can get a full screen nationwide snapshot of the weather [HERE]Also, if you want to listen to the NWS weather broadcasts, over the internet, the best listing I found for this is actually at another favorite weather site of mine called Wunderground.  You can get to the listing of NWS broadcasts at the Wunderground site [HERE] .

The NWS is tasked with providing forecasts, public warnings, and other products to organizations and the public for the purposes of protection, safety, and general information. This is done through a collection of national and regional centers, and 122 local weather forecast offices (WFOs). As the NWS is a government agency, most of its products are in the public domain and available free of charge.
