15. Weather Tracking

NOAA’s National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, (http://www.spc.noaa.gov/) is predicting a significant multi-day severe weather event for this weekend in the south-central Great Plains.  While the main thrust of this should pass to our south, there are ways to follow such storm systems from your computer, smart phone or tablet.

Broadcastify (http://www.broadcastify.com/) provides listening links to emergency response agencies and Skywarn nets across the United States, among other services and locations.  Basic listening is free, with premium services such as archived recordings also available.

When storm chasers are actively hunting tornadoes or hurricanes we have a link to them from the WHIO website (http://www.whio.com/livestormtrackers/).  Many storm chasers transmit audio from their chase vehicles, and some even stream video.  This link may be inactive when there is nothing to chase.
