I wanted to bring attention to a very nice web based application one of our members have been putting together. It has become part of my everyday use and is the first application I open up each day to get a quick run through of what's going on.
You can find it by clicking the WXSCOUT link on the bottom of the home page, or go to www.wxscout.com.

LOL, I know this is like 18 months late but I am not tracking anything on my site that isn't a point, line or polygon. Hurricane warnings are defined by weather areas (usually counties) and I need more work to include that. Trust me, I have thought about it because it would make watch boxes look much nicer on my site.
What I DID just recently add though, because I was tired of LSR's showing up 24-48 hours late is that IF a tornado warning indicates that a tornado is on the ground / confirmed I am "adding" a LSR to the list at the initiation point of the warning message as a confirmed tornado. This would have been particularly useful in the recent southern outbreak where tornadoes were not reported until hours after they happened. For high end events there will be a much better indication of where tornadoes happened sooner.
In the message section, it will note that difference and I am likely to make it "look" different at some point. Still, now you will be able to see a "path" so to speak of confirmed locations well before the LSR's show up. I do the same with small hail, waterspouts and funnel clouds, none of which show up on the SPC reports.
