Storm Intercept Forecasting Links

1995-2017 Roger Edwards, all rights reserved. Last updated 13 Apr 17 for links

Here's a list of my favorite Web sites that directly benefit storm-intercept forecasting, arranged by forecast period then by data type. This list is not intended to be all-inclusive -- just to make my life easier when doing storm forecasting out on the road. If you find this page useful, bookmark it. If not, ignore it. I'll update this as needed; so if you find a bad (or better) link, please send e-mail.
