This is interesting on several levels but one of the most important to me is the two fellows who are creating the software. I see no evidence (admittedly with little research) that either of them, or anyone on their team, has any background in meteorology. I’m not saying they need one, the point is they are here, as are others.
The barriers to entry to many things continue to lower. The old model protections are gone. Adapt or get run over.
