I has me some acronym overload. PWO = public weather outlook. CONUS = continental United States. teh = the. Like, obviously.
Stare at the Storm Prediction Center forecasts enough and you'll pick up lots of acronyms. ARKLATEX is probably my fave (Arkansas/Louisiana/Texas region as per their acronym page).
If you venture over to wickedwx, you'll now see a top banner that gives a synopsis of the current public severe weather outlook. Which is:
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF ARKANSAS NORTHEASTWARD TO THE LOWER OHIO VALLEY THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT
I've already had problems where the regular expression that I used to grab that 2 line overview has been greedy and it ended up giving me half a page instead of a couple sentences.
It's supposed to be fixed now, but given how quickly I rolled this new feature out, I haven't put anything in my template to guard against overly long summaries.
So I look forward to the day that wickedwx.com is half covered by a severe weather outlook.
I is good!
