great site for rss feeds
« on: February 21, 2008, 12:27:48 PM »
Just wanted to let everyone know that I found a great selection of RSS feeds on the NOAA/National Weather Service website:

http://www.nws.noaa.gov/rss/

Some of these are fascinating!  The pacific ocean tsunami watch is especially cool... there is tsunami wave data on there for events we never even heard about in the news...

Anyway, whats your favorite feed on here and why?

I am using several of them throughout my site http://ucweather.org/  I have a display that shows the WWA's fror my area (San Francisco Bay Shoreline), another using the state feed that displays all the WWA's for California, another that uses the feeds from the NWS West Coast/Alaska Tsunami Center and PTWC feeds to display the tsunami bulletins, and yet another using the national feed that only displays the national warnings.  

I also set up some separate pages using a combination of the SPC, NHC, and watches, warnings, and advisory feeds.  

Tornado/Severe Thunderstorm and Flash Flood Warnings
http://ucweather.org/stormauto.php  

Hurricane/Tropical Storm Watches and Warnings
http://ucweather.org/hurricaneauto.php

Warnings Only for all U.S.
http://ucweather.org/warnauto.php

I also have another page that uses all 50+ hydrologic feeds from AHPS http://www.weather.gov/ahps/ and displays the alerts on one page.
http://ucweather.org/allahpsalerts.php

I guess they are all my favorite and I just like to know what is going on around the state and the U.S. without having to go to a half dozen different websites.

CaRP is a GREAT RSS displayer (and Harry's site looks fantastic); however, if anyone would like to display RSS feeds on their site for free - don't forget about Magpie.  It does not create a link to the RSS displayer, can be configured through CSS and its FREE.  Here an example of the RSS feed I use from USA Today:

Thanks for the compliment!!!  There is also a lot you can do with the free version of CaRP.  I created some of the displays on my site using the free version and I only went to the paid version because I wanted to do some advanced filtering and color code the WWA's.  I didn't know about Magpie at the time or I might have used it instead.  Thanks for the tip.  I will keep it in mind.
