EZ weather Radar was created because there is some outstanding national weather radar data available throughout the United States that we wanted to display in a user friendly format. We believe that our national interactive radar map (EZ weather Radar) makes it clear and easy to identify what is going on not only in your local area, but also any place you choose to zoom to in the United States. We do not have a lot of bells and whistles on our map because we want it to be easy to use and not cluttered with needless knobs. We may choose to add a few in the future as we get feedback, however our overall goal is to keep it simple!
Currently we are displaying NEXRAD Base Reflectivity which gives a pretty clear view of the current weather events including rain, mix, ice, and snow. The weather radar data is produced every five minutes so we automatically update the map for you as the data is released. NEXRAD or Nexrad (Next-Generation Radar) is a network of 158 high-resolution Doppler weather radars operated by the National Weather Service, an agency of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) within the United States Department of Commerce. Its technical name is WSR-88D, which stands for Weather Surveillance Radar, 1988, Doppler.
