Local Storm Report
« on: June 15, 2008, 06:24:47 PM »
NOAA provides a Local Storm Report (LSR) that lists the current storm events reported. They update frequently during a storm, page by page, and then they consolidate all reports after the storm. Not all NOAA web pages list this feature.

After a little beta testing, I have created an easier to read script that will show the reports for your area plus a menu for other locations. It's XHTML 1.0 Strict!
Maybe this is something you can use...

Local Storm Report http://www.weather.ricksturf.com/scripts/NOAAreport.zip

Let me know if you find any errors or have any question.

Curly


Note: This is for the US only

Good job. Thanks for the script. I edited it for just my region instead of entire US.
The final product is at: http://pulliamjr.com/php/NOAAreportSrc5.php

Thanks all !

Sorry to say, I just spotted a bug in one of the reports.  #-o   After 3 weeks of testing the script, one showed up today.
If a report is issued and is not kept in format, it throws everything off by a line. I'll work on a bug remover tonight and will have it posted later on this evening.

The script is updated to accept a blank line that is entered in the remarks. That blank line breaks the page format and it may be the only occurance. If it happens again, that base is covered.

One line has been added.

On line 41 and 42 you will see this
Quote
$year = date("Y");
$html = implode('', file($noaasr));

Add this line directly below it
Quote
$html = preg_replace("/(\n)( \s\s+)([A-Z])(.*)(\n)(\n)( \s\s+)/", '${1}${2}${3}${4}${5}${7}', $html);

Sorry for the inconvenience.

All known issues have been corrected that have been pointed out.

There a several changes to accomodate the way some offices format their page. An extra line or two here, one missing there...
You can now add the complete script to your page without dissecting it, or you can just include it.

The original script should be replaced with this new one even though your not having any problems. The links are the same that are posted in the first message.

Thanks for your patience.

Spiffy!
Now when I make my (infrequent) reports to NWS, I won't have to hunt around and see if they quoted me- "Nice weather was reported by trained spotter in Carson City"   :-P

Curly,

The script appears (your site and mine) to have stopped working.
Did NWS give us a New Year surprise??

Uh oh.

Strange things have been happening at various NWS locations the last several days.  The weather story has been off and on too.

I'll give it a day or two and see if there are any changes.

Fixed it !

You can fix it by finding this
Code: [Select]
$year = date("Y");
$html = implode('', file($noaasr));

and replace it with this
Code: [Select]
$year = date("Y");
$html = implode('', file($noaasr));
// show last years reports
preg_match_all('|([0-9][0-9]/[0-9][0-9]/)(.*)(\s)|Uis', $html, $lastyear);
$preyear = $lastyear[2][0];
if($preyear == date("Y")-1) {
$year = date("Y")-1;
}


Or download the complete file

I installed this script, works nice. I did notice I can not get the right background behind it like my other pages. I am sure it is something I am doing wrong. Also, if there are more than 7 reports, the rest of the reports move over to the left. Again, I think this has to do with me and how I put it into my website. I will play with it a bit more and see if I can get things to look more the same. Here is the url-->http://www.myidahoweather.com/NOAAreport.php If any one has time to give me a few pointers I would appreciate it. I am by no means a programmer of any kind.

Thanks again for a nice script.

EDIT:I figured out how to get the background correct and also the alignment right. Trial and error does work at times.

No argues there!  Determination is the key for results.   :lol:

What did you do to align the page correctly, I'm having the same problem, after the first 3 everything is shifted to the left.

Thanks, & Happy Holidays,
Doug

I've updated the script to take care of alignments and errors.
This is a complete web page for the Saratoga Base - USA template only.
If you don't use the template set, email me.

There is only one setting near the top of the file that you set to your nearest Weather Forecast Office.
$noaa_id = "iwx";  // Three letter code for YOUR nearest NOAA center

I agree!  Thanks for not only this update but all the great scripts you have given all of us to use over the years!
