The NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL), in partnership with the University of Oklahoma and has launched an app where users can anonymously report precipitation from their iPhone or Android through the “mobile Precipitation Identification Near the Ground “mPING” app.
NSSL hosted a booth at the OU GIS Day event at the National Weather Center in Norman, Okla. on November 14, 2012.
The free, public and very popular National Weather Festival will be held Saturday, November 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the National Weather Center.
NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and the NOAA National Weather Service awarded funding for four, two-year projects to improve the way potentially life-saving weather warnings reach those who need them.
NSSL’s Harold Brooks posted about “The Tornado “Drought” of 2012 on the U.S. Severe Weather Blog. Read about it here: http://www.norman.noaa.gov/2012/08/the-tornado-drought-of-2012/
