"Andy: Aweather got started during the summer of 2008. I was
working in Norman Oklahoma at a Computer Science REU studying
machine learning and winter precipitation types (rain, sleet, snow,
etc). However, it wasn't until the spring of 2009 that I picked up
AWeather again and started spending more time on it.
"While in Norman, I was fortunate enough to meet some great
people and was able to learn a lot more about meteorology. One of
the things I found out was that the radars used by the National
Weather Service actually provided a lot more information than is
usually shown on TV stations and news websites.
"That's really how AWeather got started. I wanted to be able to
see all this additional higher quality radar data, but I couldn't
find any programs for GNU/Linux that were both advanced enough and
easy enough to use without any specialized training."
