We added a new weather mapping tool, perhaps the coolest I’ve ever seen. You can find the link under the weather menu – “DarkSky Weather Maps.”
The report maps 13 different metrics hourly:
- Temperature Forecast and Actuals
- Feels like Temperature
- Precipitation Radar
- Precipitation Forecast
- Cloud Cover
- Wind Speed
- Wind Speed Gusts
- and a few others
The map looks back nine days and forwards nine days. Use the calendar tool to select the date you want to map. You can also use the forward/backward buttons to the right of the calendar tool.
The map is hourly; you can pick a date and hour, then use the buttons to jump forward/backward in three-hour increments.
Pick an hour to start; You can also zoom in and out.
Told you it was cool. One other thing, check out those San Jose temperatures next week – approaching 100 degrees. Get ready for another roller coaster rid on the SP15 express. The last heat wave wasn’t that hot in the Bay Area; this one looks like it might exceed total ISO demand. Oooh, Lah Lah!
