The SSEC’s Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) TROPIC web site, which you can access on any PC or tablet. Jim likes this site because frequently he is using only 3G service and he is able to access a large amount of data quickly without a large download payload.
Like NOAA, TROPIC has a huge wealth of information and you want to make sure your browser has pop up blocking disabled, otherwise you will not be able to click on any of the links which spawn new tabs or new browser windows.
Described as “The ultimate radar application for the iPad” Radarscope (iOS, $9.99) is an extremely sophisticated, real-time doppler radar app for iOS that completely exploits the new Retina display of the third-generation iPad.
It features the ability to select from dozens of long-range doppler radar stations and get data in real-time and also gives you severe weather alerts which you can click on and focus on a particular dangerous weather area.
