[MISC] With severe weather possibilities ramping up next week, this is a great experimental radar site from NWS:

A more zoomed in SPC outlook graphic is here:
(small to large scale)

The IEM NWSBOT monitor gives public, real-time / nearly instant updates on products, similar to NWS WX Wire/NWSChat:

Another helpful graphic if you're just starting to read SPC/WPC discussions is the region reference map:

Why is weather forecasting so difficult?

"Consider a rotating spherical envelope of a mixture of gases -- occasionally murky and always somewhat viscous. Place it around an astronomical object nearly 8,000 miles in diameter. Tilt the system back and forth with respect to its source of heat and light. Freezing it at the poles of its axis of rotation and intensely heat it in the middle. Cover most of the surface of the sphere with a liquid that continually feeds moisture into the atmosphere. Subject the whole to tidal forces induced by the sun and a captive satellite.Then try and predict the conditions of one small portion of the atmosphere for a period of one to seven days in advance" - Peter R. Chaston
