So, looks like the way the Python `requests` module parses string arrays into parameters was very different than what the NWS API was looking for so I was only getting `Severe` watches and warnings and none of the `Extreme` ones. It's already been a busy #python #weather

The heating came on this morning.

Boiseans are talking as if it's summer already. The summer solstice is this year is 2024-06-20 20:51 UTC. That said my first steady use of the window AC this spring, as in running it overnight, was last night. Just as well I killed a computer.

Ran the NWS updates script overnight, didn't see any errors and the image directory has a ton of images in it which makes me happy. Still have a bit more cleanup to do, but a really good sign. #weather #python

The log output for the script that pulls NWS alerts from the API and generates maps with cool red polygons on it.

There's flooding and rain and wind damage in nearby provinces, but the (admittedly selfish) silver lining for me is that the weather has been pretty cool these past couple of days.

I'm really lucky 🍀
I got a couple of official warnings about heavy rain and floods. But right now it's just very mild rain in my direct neighbourhood.
The huge rain front stays all north and west of me.
I'm keeping fingers crossed 🤞 for a lot of people.

Alright, time to see if all the changes worked. Of course, to test it I'll need nature to provide some severe storms which seems kinda wrong... #python #weather

Started cleaning up the code a bit and documenting everything before I post it. There are still a few issues, but the app runs solidly enough to process the NWS API messages at a regular interval. #python #weather

Severe Thunderstorm Watch here in Charleston, SC, which means it's time to breakout the NWS using `webfsd` to serve the generated images. I am skipping a few types of events, but it's nice to have a real-time thread of watches/warnings as they come in. #weather #python

A screenshot of two terminal windows and Visual Studio Code being open on a desktop.  The top-left terminal window shows the processed NWS events to include the event type, area, and the filename of the image generated.  The terminal window on the top-right shows webfsd serving the images generated.  The VSC window shows the update Python code to process the alerts as they come in.
