Hey Joe, any thought to being able to poll individual gates for information such as the dbz, wind speed, height, etc? Or is that something that pykl3 already does and I just can't figure it out?

Today, we'd like to bring up a very serious topic--distracted driving. Distracted driving kills about 9 people every day and maims or injures nearly 1000 in the US. We wish to emphasize that the PYKL3Radar license agreement prohibits users from using the program while operating a motor vehicle (driving). It's dangerous and we want to be no part of any situation that causes someones loved one to be harmed. Just do the right thing!

And our closing post on how to change RADAR sites in P3

Storm reports (Subscription with CaprockWeather.com or AllisonHouse.com required)

Similar to the Warning list, you can tap on the Location entry and quickly move to the location of the report. A crosshair is displayed so you can see the location, even if you do not have the LSR icons displayed.

Just like the Warning list, you can sort the list by tapping the column headings.

PYKL3Radar 2.9.1.5 has been released. See the change log on first run for a list of enhancements.

Back to our discussion on how to change RADAR sites

Zoom

In the last post, I described how to pan and zoom around the map, and then long press on a location of interest.

You can also use zoom in a slightly different way.

Zoom out to the CONUS display. Then zoom in to an area of interest and the display will switch to the detailed Radar Site (RDA) mode and change to that RDA. This is a very simple technique that allows you to see distant weather and then zoom in for details.

More on selecting radar sites!

Warning list

When you display the list of active Warnings, you can tap the NWS Office name for the warning. The system will move to the center of that warning area and also change to the appropriate Radar Site (RDA).

Note that you can change the sort order of the Warning list by tapping on the column heading. This lets you easily see all warnings associated with each NWS Office.

As we continue the illumination of the different ways to select a new RADAR site in P3, here's a sneak peak to the further refinements in the Selector coming shortly in 2.9.1.5. Color coding of status: Salmon (Trending) Red (RADAR site inoperative) and gray (out of range from current map position). The logic is also enhanced so that the list of 6 closest sites is derived from the map's center position. Furthermore, using this selection method, the map center will remain fixed. So, it's even easier than ever to compare data from multiple sites.

Long Press

Performing a long press on your device display will pop up a menu that lets you initiate a variety of actions. The first option will select the location where you pressed, and switch to the Radar Site (RDA) closest to that location.

You can do a long press from the main display, by panning and zooming around the map, or by zooming out to the CONUS display to see a larger area.
