StormEye - Storm Tracking

StormEye - Storm Tracking


StormEye provides detailed storm tracking information and weather radar images overlaid on Google Maps. For each storm, StormEye provides important information such as the storm's location relative to your location, where the storm is heading, estimated time of arrival (ETA), the storm's intensity, hail probabilities, and maximum hail size.

StormEye is free, without ads!

StormEye functions by downloading data from the National Weather Service for the selected WSR-88D weather radar. The radar closest to your current location is automatically chosen; however, you can quickly switch to any of the 156 NWS WSR-88D radars across the United States. The downloaded data is then used to construct a weather radar with markers and tracks for every detected storm.

• quickly switch to any of the 156 NWS WSR-88D radars across the U.S.

Removed the check for down radar since the NWS is providing inaccurate radar status to some users. BEWARE: StormEye will no longer warn you when a radar is down, so if a radar is genuinely down for maintenance you will probably notice strange behavior in StormEye (old or invalid data/radar, a gray box instead of a radar image, etc).

Great app! Only one thing I would need The Strom names have like "q4" or s3 , t4 etc.... Theirs no legend on what they mean, like tornado, hail storm, rain Strom etc we just had a tornado blow through and I couldn't find which one was the tornado on the map or on the list, like does the s, t, w, q, stand for something? And the number stand for something? That would be a huge help to quickly locate what Storm is which, thx for bringing back the compass
