|This script displays a couple of
thermometer widgets that continuously
update their readings from a web site operated by the Weather Network.
The 2 thermometers display the current wet and dry bulb temperatures
from a single reporting location. The thermometer script is contained
in the standard Tcl Fltk distribution in the scripts directory.
The Weather Network offers a large number of station reports that can be selected by changing the thermometer script.
|The station plot application is
contained in the standard Tcl Fltk
distribution in the scripts directory. It accepts a list of Aviation
Statiion Identifiers, and will maintain a continuously updated display
of the latest observations for the selected reporting stations. The
widgets will display the current report in a variety of formats, and
maintain a history of up to 24 hours of reports which can be animated
using the control buttons for the stations.
The widgets also extract the current normals, maximum, minimum and precipitation reports, as well as the 5 day forecast information available from the web site. Clicking on the control buttons of the station plot widgets allows the user to cucle through the various displays and information.
The information is continuously extracted from the Canadian Meteorological Center's public web site. All Canadian reporting stations, US stations and a large selection of International reports are available.
If you are running on Linux and have the Tcl GDBM package installed, also available from this site, this script will acquire a database of downloaded observation data that can be used for subsequent analysis of weather phenomena at the selected observation sites.
