Rich, John, et al;
I also got an email from the local NWS office about a month and a
half ago. Yes, they do look and use the data we send to the CWOP site.
I did have a chance to visit the office a few weeks later and saw hoe
they use the data to fine tune forecast models as well as using the
current data. They also explained that other organizations like the
University of Utah, also use the data we provide. It was very exciting
to see the data being used.
That is why I love WUHU, I can send to four different sites so more
people can use they data.
Blue Skies to all;
