    Storm Tracking

    I used to use Stormpulse to track storms and hurricanes but now it's no longer free.

    Here's the link https://secure.www.stormpulse.com/products/

    Any of you guys know of a similar site that's free ???

    Thanks and Ted said he will mow your lawn for the summer if you come up with a good site..

    NASA will have the goods, but Canadian Weather may have links that amount to the same thing.

    Thanks Dogberry.
    I found one on the weather channel that I am trying now....
    It's a desktop app.

    Well, the weather channel one sucks. It's just a weather desktop which I don't need.

    Actually, an app isn't really important.
    Stormpulse.com is a website that gives real time storm tracking and progress..

    A site similar to Stormpulse would be fine for my needs.

    Hello... Can't remember if you use FireFox or not but if you do there is a very good Add-on forecastfox...Put it where you want and it displays any area of the USA in real time ,just by hovering your mouse above the "Green dot radar scope". Regards Fred

    Fred, I use IE9..

    Like I said in my original post, I just want a site like https://secure.www.stormpulse.com/products/

    I used it for a long time until they started charging for it..

    We're just having a bit of fun with it,but Stormpulse does look useful for those with a use for it. They say that they are aggregating data from 25 'official sources'. but it seems likely to me that those sources are individually free, if they are indeed 'official'. I suspect that if you could figure out where they are getting their data from, you could have most if not all of what you want.
