Over the next two weeks this class of WKU met students will track storms across the great plains and you can follow along using the links below. Not much in terms of hazardous weather is expected soon so I will leave this post up and we can sit back and follow there journey. By early next week chances for severe weather could increase in Nebraska and South Dakota.
Go to http://www.spotternetwork.org/feeds/grlevelx.txtUse your browser’s find function (click ‘Edit’ and then click ‘Find on this page’ on the dropdown menu or type Ctrl+F) and type in Grady Dixon or Josh Durkee (I would probably use Grady Dixon as I don’t know if Dr. Durkee is set up to be tracked yet but I know Dr. Dixon is). When you find him, the line above his name will have a set of 2 numbers. These are the latitude and longitude coordinates. Go to http://www.gorissen.info/Pierre/maps/googleMapLocation.phpand under ‘Coordinates’ type the lat and lon to find our location. And of course, go to http://www.nws.noaa.gov/ and click on our location to bring up the nearest NWS office. There should be a link for radar on the left side of each office’s page. Click on that and see if we are on some storms. Also, go to http://fastforecast.blogspot.com/. This is a blog of one of the people on the trip and we will all be updating it daily.
