Weather messages

Weather Message works by receiving weather messages from the National Weather Service EMWIN data stream. Weather Message can receive weather messages by direct ingestion from a satellite, radio modem, or Internet servers. The software takes the weather message and processes it against alarms you setup.

Why would you want to use Weather Message? It allows you to send abbreviated messages to pagers and cellular phones, in addition, it allows you to send weather messages and alarms to other computers on your network. This allows people on your local computer network to quickly receive weather alerts. Weather Message Client and Weather Message Map run in the background.

Weather Message Client contains a weather graphics viewer. The graphics viewer allows you to view the graphics transmitted over the EMWIN network. The graphics images can be animated and presented as a slide show. With Internet access, you can use the radar retriever to receive radar images.
