7 Weeks, Fall 2017
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's current Storm Report and Storm History system is out of date. It would benefit from a functionality boost and visual facelift.
1. VISUAL UPDATE - Rebuild the existing NOAA SPC Storm Reports system into a clean, concise and modern interface that is easy to use.
2. DOSSIER - Add the ability to select an individual storm report to learn about its exact location, description and media submitted by SkyWarn spotters.
3. TIMELINE - Add an interactive timeline that grants the user the ability to access past storm reports on with ease.

41 year old Sal Bonpensiero is considered by many to be the 'weatherman' of his North Jersey friend group. Sal Bopensiero is a weather aficionado who has heard folk-tales of the 'Great Newark Twister of 1992' but has never heard or seen anything about it. However, thanks to the release of Meso he can easily use the timeline scrubber to check the entire NOAA recorded weather events for a twister that may have hit Newark in 1992. Once he finds the sacred twister, he will be able to retrieve a detailed dossier on said event just by tapping on it.
Kip LaPointe is a batshit insane 29 year old meterologist who also just happens to chase severe weather when the spring storm season rears its ugly head in the midwest. Kip tries to help communities hit by major storms and uses the storm report dossier feature on Meso to figure out which area needs the most help after a severe weather outbreak.
Behold, the big kahuna after working in a windowless design dungeon for weeks on end.
Thanks for checking out Meso!
