Station Location Maps
MesoWest has been designed for use by National Weather Service
meteorologists and other professionals for protection of life and property.
Comments and suggestions for improvement are encouraged and can
be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The MesoWest Station Location Maps have
been designed to display the relative positions of all available stations from
which data can be retrieved. These maps are updated each night in order to provide
access to stations that may be deployed temporarily.
There are two different types of station maps available at this time.
CWA Maps (unavailable)
The National Weather Service County Warning Area (CWA) maps show weather station
locations relative to CWA and public forecast zone boundaries..
The State maps show weather station locations relative to state boundaries.
On all maps, each red plus symbol represents a station in the MesoWest Database.
When the mouse pointer rolls over a plus symbol, the station name and the station
call letters appear on the status bar of your web browser. To access current station
data, click on a red plus with your mouse pointer. The current data will appear
to the right of the map.
Many smaller monitors on PCs have default screen sizes set to 800 pixels wide.
The combined width of the primary frame used to display the base map and current
conditions requires that the width be set to 900 pixels or larger (1024 is a standard
screen size to use). To change the screen size on a PC:
Use the back arrow to return to the base map display. The changes to the screen
size should not affect the functionality of most other programs (although older
games often presume smaller, fixed screen sizes).
- Select Settings and choose Control Panel
- Select Display
- Select Settings (the last option on the right at the top)
- Using the slide bar, move the Screen area towards More (1024 x 768 pixels
is preferred) if your current width setting is less than 1000
- Click OK
- Click OK after the Display Properties info box appears
- Click OK after the Monitor Settings info box appears
