Did you know that TalkWeather started out as a list of weather links? Well for a special project we are working on we are looking for your favorite weather links. Drop them below along with a brief description. Much appreciated as always!

I always have this one in a tab with the volume on during severe weather - https://weather.im/iembot/

It is put together by the Iowa Envioronmental Mesonet team at Iowa State University and allows you get real time updates from weather offices across the country. You can have multiple tabs open within the page to follow multiple offices. I keep the sound up because a chime will play with every update.

It might also be good to put together a list of educational resources for people who are new or who aren't familiar with things like soundings/models/etc.

I’m learning how to use Pivatol weather for severe forecasts especially the HRRR, which has proven to be accurate for these events!!

If anyone has the chance to take a storm spotters class it’s worth it’s weight in gold as far as learning how to read soundings (I assume they still teach this), models and severe weather lingo and meaning!!

The spotter classes in AL sound much better than the ones in GA. I’ve never seen them refer to, much less, talk about soundings or model data. Here, they are pretty basic and even the adv class is not that advanced. It wasn’t a spotter class, but the radar class last night from the Memphis office was REALLY good and educational.
