10 of the top security packages evaluated to help you decide which is best for you.  I've been using the same package for quite a while but I still read these to make sure that I don't need to change.



Using Tech Resources in Extreme Weather

This is a list of links that I use to keep myself informed about extreme weather conditions.
  • Alabama DOT Road Conditions - click on the county box and a state map should pop up.  Click on your county to get information about roads in your county.  You can search using the route box for Interstates (I-#), US /routes (US #), & State Routes (SR #).  The prefix A can be used to search for all routes of a particular type.  There is also a link for construction bulletins that I find useful for planing trips.
  • Alabama Severe Weather Watch - a service of The Alabama State Climatologist, UAHuntsville and The National Weather Service.  Provides a radar map and a watch/warning map.
  • Hourly Weather Forecast Graph - from the NWS.  You can see up to 6 days of forecast.  There is also a tabular version of this available.
  • Lee County EMA:  latest News and Information -one of the better county EMA sites in my opinion.
  • Weather Underground:  Auburn, AL - current conditions and forecast.  It's easy to switch to other cities.
  • Wundermap:  Auburn, AL - from Weather Underground, map showing temperatures, radar, severe weather advisories, fronts, and storm tracks.  This map can be easily paned or zoomed to see the area that you want.
I hope you find these useful for trip and extreme weather planing.  If you want to suggest any additions please email me.
