UPDATE: 3:10PM CST: Pleased to report the NWS has fixed the outage and data is now flowing normally.
From the Washington Post:
This what people seeking radar data from the National Weather Service are currently receiving.
This outage affects the NWS itself. Even with a blizzard in New England and a storm in Texas, their national weather radar map is blank.
In the meantime, AccuWeather is serving all of its users as we normally do.
UPDATE: 3:01PM CST: Just received an email from a user in California asking if competitors of ours would have radar data right now. The answer is, in at least some cases, "no." Below is a radar image from a competitor from moments ago. Compare the two times.
It isn't just the public. Emergency managers, broadcasters, and others who rely directly on the NWS and on some of AccuWeather's competitors cannot get the critical radar information they need. The Washington Post reports on the outage.
When I recommend AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions to businesses it isn't just because I work for the company. It is because I see, every day, the time, money and effort we put into our business to be the very best when severe or extreme weather occurs.
