NWS Radar and APRS in Google Earth

Today I was thinking about how great it would be if I could overlay National Weather Service alerts, radar, and APRS objects on top of Google Earth. After searching to find out if this is possible, I quickly found this great article from a fellow ham. I’m sure it will be of interest to many of you. Enjoy!





Below you’ll see a screenshot I took over Williamson County on the morning of July 22, 2015 as a storm is rolling through. You can see here that I was able to query the weather stations that are in our area to track rainfall levels, pressure, temperature, and wind speeds. If I needed information from people on the ground, I could look for mobile stations transmitting in the area and call them on the frequency that they listed in their APRS position report.
