Storm Detection Working

Over the last week, I have watched storms appear and disappear in the West and South Pacific.  They are populating the active area nicely.

Additionally, it is sending emails whenever it updates with an active storm.  This will be transitioned into an email listserv.

My next area to work on is populating the world map with current storm location as well as adding local weather data to a storm map.

I am really liking the way the system is building out.

Proof of Concept - No More!!!

2018 West Pacific Storm Jelawat

With the advent of the 2018 Western Pacific Storm Jelawat, Weather.JaysCafe.Net is no longer a proof-of-concept.  It is functional.

I had two mistakes to contend with.  I mispelled "active" omitting the "i" and my data source mispelled the name of the storm.  However, the website was already tracking the storm and creating the graphs.  It just couldn't display them because of the mispellings.

I am very happy with the progression of the web site development.  Next is to get weather data from the area to co-populate the map.  This is not going to be a real challenge other than me being able to focus on writing the code.

I have spoken with my neurologist and one of my meds have been doubled.  I am beginning to feel the positive effects.  I hope to start cranking out the code sometime in the next week.

Thanks for reading!

Auto-storm Detect Process Completed

We have made it through a complete storm cycle.  Several short-comings were noted and corrected.

Next step is to have It auto-post to social media.

Next upgrade will be to have weather conditions local to the event posted on the page as well as the generated weather map, pulling them from the front page and automating them.
