Title: NWS seeking feedback - experimental tropical cyclone JSON
Post by: Jasiu on May 29, 2019, 11:00:44 AM
Probably most interesting to other code / script developers...

A new JSON format (experimental) is out for describing tropical cyclones. NWS is looking for feedback / comments. Details here:

https://www.weather.gov/media/notification/pns19-16tropical_cyclone_json.pdf (https://www.weather.gov/media/notification/pns19-16tropical_cyclone_json.pdf)

Example JSON: https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/productexamples/NHC_JSON_Sample.json (https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/productexamples/NHC_JSON_Sample.json)

Live data (empty as of this writing): https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/CurrentStorms.json (https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/CurrentStorms.json)

Those of us living in W and SW would probably be interested in the "Eastern Pacific" disturbances, ie: those spawned off the western coast of Mexico and USA.

It applies. From the PDF file:

The National  Hurricane Center will produce this file whenever tropical cyclone forecasts are being made by the NWS in the Atlantic,  eastern North Pacific, and Central Pacific basins.

This information seems like it would be a great addition to weather website templates.
