StormLab Description & Feature List

After more than 12 years, StormLab remains the leading Doppler Software available to Windows users. StormLab turns any internet connection into a unique and comprehensive display system for National Weather Service Doppler radars.  With access to over 150 radar sites across the entire US, you will have instant access to nearly 2 dozen products including reflectivity, velocity, storm relative velocity, VAD Wind Profiles, precipitation estimates, storm cell data, and MUCH more. StormLab's full-featured interface includes looping, zooming, and overlays of cities, county names, highways, mesocyclones, tornado vortex signatures, and even GPS tracking!  Everything is customizable, right down to the color tables and maps used to display the images.  Setup visual and audio alarms to alert you of the most severe storms! StormLab's auto-ingest engine allows you to store radar data from interesting events while you're away, and then go back to view the data anytime! Why settle for monthly data fees and pre-manufactured radar imagery?  Why settle for anything less than software written by meteorologists?
