Website Update

   Posted by Levi at 2:50pm on July 8, 2015

Changes

This website was updated on July 7. The code for all pages has been rewritten in responsive design, meaning pages now resize and display differently based on your device or browser width. The website should be fully usable on anything from phones to desktops, and the pages will now take advantage of more space on widescreen monitors.

The only downside to these changes is that this type of responsive layout does not work on older browsers, specifically Internet Explorer before version 11 and Android before version 4.4 (Kit-Kat). However, all current versions of modern browsers will run the website. My statistics show around 95% of you are running a browser that can support the new website. I hope you enjoy the new look.

I’m running a modern browser but the site looks funny…??

Sometimes your browser’s cache will use old style sheets to render the new pages if you’re viewing them for the first time since the update. A simple refresh of the page should load the new style sheets for the website, making it display properly.

Bug Reports

I’ve done my best to make this site compatible with the vast majority of users, but if you encounter a bug in how a page displays or functions, please let me know via email. Reporting your browser name and version and including a screenshot of the problem is always helpful!


Thanks everyone for continuing to support this site. It would not exist without those who use it.

– Levi

    Levi,
    Love the site…Hoverver, over the last few weeks the model page particularly is all jumbled up with the links overlapping and such, making usage impossible. Is there a problem with the page or my setup? Worked fine forever prior to few weeks back. The change in my ability to use seemed to coincide with your update. I haveyour page as a desktop icon, should I delete and start over?

      Hi Kevin,

      Which browser and version are you using? The update removed support for Internet Explorer before version 11. Recent versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari run the site just fine. If you’re not using an unsupported browser, make sure you refresh the model page or clear your browser cache so that the new page is properly loaded.

    Something may be interesting — home grown near FL peninsula but way too early to get cute. We will be watching for this tid bit.

    The site looks great! Just noticed it because I haven’t really been here since the Atlantic has been so (dare I say it) quiet. Great Job Levi!

    Great work, great site for tropical meteorologists!

  • HarryCane says:

    Levi, When is the MJO returning to the Atlantic and will this be the only chance for tropical development this year?

    • Levi says:

      Looks like a weak event will move into the Atlantic during the week centered around August 15. I doubt it’s our only chance for development, but it may be only one of a couple chances for development in the MDR, specifically, where conditions are the most hostile. We will have to watch the SW Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico for the rest of the season.

    Hi, Levi!

    Thanks a lot :)
