Title: Weather Data, Forecasts, and Satellite Imagery from the University of Hawaii Meteorology Department
Description:
Abstract:
The University of Hawaii School of Ocean & Earth Science & Technology Department of Meteorology (UH/SOEST/METO) The UH/SOEST/METO Server provides weather data and forecasts, satellite imagery, and other environmental data. The home page is divided into 6 sections; Hawaiian Weather, Mainland Weather, Tropical Weather, Severe Weather, Weather Archives, and Forecast Data. The University of Hawaii Department of Meteorology maintains all current weather data for research and education through the Weather Observatory located in the Hawaii Institute for Geophysics building. Weather maps provided for remote access via WWW clients are regularly updated to allow interested users to actively participate in the observation of interesting weather phenomenon. The Hawaiian Weather section contains regional observations, satellite imagery, forecasts, severe weather, and weather emergency reports. The most recent observation from the National Weather Service (NWS) office at Honolulu International airport is available. The hourly regional weather map shows surface weather observations from island stations, buoys and available ships. The latest local infrared and visible satellite images are displayed along with the Hawaii IR Satellite MPEG Movie. The regional forecasts cover the entire Hawaiian Islands, the Honolulu vicinity, Hawaii-Hilo vicinity, Maui-Wailuku/Kahalui, Kauai-Lihue, as well as the surf forecasts for local beaches. Specific Honolulu data include temperature and precipitation summaries for the day, month and year; Honolulu model output statistics from NGM, and the Honolulu 24-hour meteogram. Interactive Weather Reports for reporting stations in the Hawaiian Islands are also available. Other forecasts and analysis include the wave height forecast, surface analysis, precipitation forecast, Pacific upper air analysis, upper air data, severe weather, tropical weather, tsunami messages, recent earthquake reports, and historical events The Mainland Weather section contains national satellite imagery, hourly observations, radar, and forecasts. The imagery includes the latest GMS-4, GOES-8, and GOES-10 visible and infrared pictures. The National Weather Map Composite Weather Summary displays isobars and surface frontal positions in relation to observed weather conditions and precipitation detected by radar. Areas of significant cloud cover are shown in relation to surface weather features. The ETA precipitation forecast provides 12 hour cumulative precipitation amounts. Other information provided include severe and tropical weather, recent earthquake reports, selected cites forecasts, and the National Weather Summary. The Tropical Weather section contains Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Ocean outlooks along with El Nino, and hurricane's Andrew and Hugo data. The Atlantic Information Tropical Storm Track provides up-to-date storm track information during the Atlantic Hurricane Season as reports are received. The Tropical Storm forecast provides the most recent storm track forecast during the Atlantic Hurricane Season as forecasts are received. Other Atlantic data include the Current Tropical Atlantic Outlook and the Atlantic Tracking Map. The Pacific data is composed of the Current Eastern Pacific Outlook, Current Central Pacific Outlook, and the Current Western Pacific Outlook. The Indian data shown is the Current Indian Ocean Outlook. The satellite and radar images for hurricanes Andrew and Hugo are also available. The Severe Weather section displays recent Severe Weather Reports updated at 6AM (Central) daily, catalog of daily reports for each month of the past 12 months, Tornado Outbreaks Chart from T. Fujiuta from 1965-1991, and satellite images of the Andover, KS Tornado Outbreak (4/16/91). The Weather Archives section gives data on some of the events in the previous 2 paragraphs. In addition, the Storm of the Century (3/12/93) satellite images and GMS Satellite images of the Rabaul Volcano are included. The Forecast Data section contains the MRF 500-mb forecast, NGM 500-mb/surface forecast, ECMWF global 500-mb heights forecast, ETA forecast precipitation, and the AVN Pacific forecast for precipitation and wave height, along with the surface analysis. Upper-air data available includes Hilo and Lihue, HI sounding data, and the U.S. 300, 500, 700 and 850 mb height analysis. Other features include 2-D and 3-D representation of atmospheric pressure, Interactive Weather Reports for reporting stations in the North Carolina region, ACE-1 experiment information, America's Cup information, UV Forecast Indices, Interesting Historical Events, Profiler demonstration data for Vici, OK., and Other Weather servers (Unidata, NC STATE, NOAA, NCDC, and the National Data Buoy Center).
