When NOAA's National Weather Service issues a tropical storm warning for the U.S. or its territories, the Storm QuickLook is activated. This free online tool is a snapshot of near real-time coastal and weather observations for areas affected by a storm.
As the name suggests, the Storm QuickLook provides a ‘quick look’ at how a storm is affecting the coast. Here are some of the details provided by this report:
QuickLook is served up by the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services, NOAA's tides and currents experts. While updates are generally published online four times a day, QuickLook data is updated once every six minutes during storm events. The online product may be released more frequently as circumstances (such as storm landfall) dictate.
