CURRENT HAZARDS

 

United States Geological Survey (USGS)
Natural Hazards Support System
[Interactive Map Viewer]
View a variety of real-time natural hazards in a single viewer. Information about these current natural hazards is combined with base map data (including critical infrastructure from HAZUS-MH) to aid in planning and coordinating emergency response activities.

CURRENT WEATHER / FORECASTS

 

NOAA / National Weather Service (NWS)
Storm Warnings and Forecasts

NOAA / National Hurricane Center:
Tropical Prediction Center
Forecasts centered on tropical storm systems, including hurricanes

<Click your location> for radar reflectivity (precipitation).
and/or
<Type your city/state (at the top)> for weather forecast

NOAA / Storm Watch
This is a roundup of NOAA weather Web sites. Track storms through NOAA weather satellites, get the latest weather maps and learn how to protect yourself and your community from severe weather.

Weather Channel
Current weather, doppler radar and weather forecasts

The Weather Underground
Current weather and other weather-related maps

Weather Bug
Live "streaming" local weather. Fee-based service, although they offer a free trial.

Texas Mesonet
Near real-time data from network of meteorological instruments. A state-wide comprehensive network of weather instrumentation will provide insight into current conditions in every area (and every county) of the State and instant access to current weather data and information for citizens, schools, agencies, and industry.


 

NON-WEATHER

 

Texas Department of Transportation
Texas Highway Reporting System
This site shows highway condition information for all roads on the state highway system (this doesn’t include city streets or county roads). Highway conditions expected to exist for more than two hours and close travel completely or delay travel more than 30 minutes are posted. Also, highway conditions expected to exist for more than two hours and create unsafe driving conditions (i.e. major accidents, fires, ice, snow, flooding) are posted. Highway conditions showing that roads are open for travel are not posted.


 

RESEARCH & PREDICTION MODELING

 

NOAA / National Weather Center
National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD)

This service provides the public, government agencies, and commercial enterprises with data from the National Weather Service’s (NWS) digital forecast database. NWS customers and partners may NDFD data over the Internet and receive the information back in an XML format. The data can then be used in a GIS, if preferred.

NASA
Shore-Term Prediction Research and Transition Center (SPoRT)
Information regarding how SPoRT seeks to accelerate the infusion of NASA Earth Science Enterprise (ESE) observations, data assimilation and modeling research into NWS forecast operations and decision-making at the regional and local level.
