    While I was attending Penn State for my master's in meteorology, I heard about the bill AccuWeather submitted to try and restrict the NWS from posting public data. I personally couldn't believe anyone would want to do that, and it made me seriously consider the motives of AccuWeather and any wealthy CEO. I couldn't fathom the idea that anyone would want to withhold life-saving weather data and NWS products for profit.

    As far as weather models like the ECMWF (European model), you can get model runs for free off of a number of websites. I use sites like Pivotal Weather and Penn State's E-wall to verify NWS forecasts and make my own conclusions. The only data that may still be totally privatized is lightning mapper data, but there's a website called that gives free real-time lightning locator data.

    i remember when the weather channel blatantly lied about hurricane irma. They had some reporter who was supposed to be "on location" with trees blowing around and debris flying by but his hair barely moved in the wind. Clearly on a green screen with a mist fan just trying to drum up fear.

    Weather Underground isn't NWS data. It's people with weather stations in their yard putting the data on the web for other people.

    Oh, Grand Rapids. I hope he got to keep his job because I consider outbursts to bring awareness about the kind of restricted stress many people working hold onto. This guy was obviously getting flak from colleagues and callers about an aspect of reality that he doesn't control. Bad news is bad news and would you prefer to be surprised by such a thing or WARNED?

    Of course it's BS to think that the head of National Weather Service won't divulge insider info to his family-run business.
    It's also BS to think that Biden never did the same for his son's investment bank, Rosemont Seneca, on multiple occasions.
    And it's BS that this show, which prides itself on the investigative journalism of others, has a double standard: calling out a weak case of the head of the National Weather Service enriching his immediate family but ignoring multiple major cases of the VP enriching his immediate family with his access to the executive branch's decision making process and to government purse strings.

    Here's the root of all those ad-based weather apps. Not super pretty on a smart phone, but is great on a desktop for actual weather planning for things like hiking, prescribed fire, travel, outdoor activities other than going from your house to your car to your work... and back again

    Thank God this idiot withdrew his nomination. Maybe he sees the writing on the wall for Trump administration and doesn't want to get caught up in the shit storm. Either way, glad he's gone.
