Flowx Android app now has NAM and HRRR for continental USA
« on: August 03, 2018, 01:07:06 AM »
Hi,

After 9 months of work I've finally got NAM and HRRR data into my app. It pretty impressive data with a 3km resolution.

Flowx is the Android weather app formerly known as WeatherBomb.

I'm just looking it getting the HYSPLIT smoke data into the app with the California fires raging. Also hope to find time to add NAM and HRRR for Hawaii with hurricane Hector developing in the North Pacific.

Europe and Canada high res data is on the plans.

Apologies if this is regarded as spam. I certainly don't intend it to be.

Happy to hear suggestions though my main limitation is time and a super-long-to-do list.

Cheers, Duane.

More excellent work Duane!  Awesome app - I use it all the time.  Especially useful for winter backcountry travel.

That's a name from the past. I was wondering if you were still around.

Yes, Canada is on the list. The projection of the data looks hard though, it spans the north pole:

Canada also has some new global wave data at 0.25 degree resolution.

Now that we have regional data sorted for the app, there is a lot of work and data to add. Looking forward to it.
