The Ephemerata Weather Radar Project pages continue to undergo development.
Intro page:

The intro page graphic now stands alone. To continue on into the website, simply click on the image and you will go there directly.

Auto-refresh:

I’ve now added auto-refresh to the web pages both for the main page and the large image pages for both Scan A and Scan B. These pages will now refresh on a 90 second repeat cycle, and if data is new, will update the screen. Its now possible to put the radar page up on your monitor and watch it auto-update as new data is sent to the hosting server. Monitoring bad weather no longer requires you to manually refresh the display.

Internet Explorer handles this feature slightly differently than Firefox (what else!). When IE refreshes it will return to the top of the page. Firefox will remain on the portion of the page it was displaying when the refresh occurred. I am exploring work-arounds to see if I can get IE to do the same. For most of the pages, the two browsers behave similarly.

The Ephemerata Weather Radar Project is designed around a screen resolution setting of 1024×768. The large image presentations are sized to fit this format size with the browser Full Screen Mode set (F11 toggle on the keyboard). In this mode, coupled with the auto-uploading capabilities of the Storm Predator processor, EWR Project will present a continuously updating web view of the changing radar data as it arrives at the host server. The main pages will do the same in Firefox (IE will require re-aligning of the page). Its important to remember that there is an inherent lag of about 10 minutes to the radar data when monitoring for severe weather. If you live in the GTA, feel free to ask to be put on the mailer for severe weather alerts. These are sent immediately upon the processor receiving the appropriate threshold data (see the EWR page notes for more info).
