Your source for forecasting tools, software, and books since 1993

"Thank you for actually penning these books. They are a wonderful review of the concepts without the excessive (but necessary) amount of math behind them. I wish they had been recommended as supplements in both my undergrad and graduate years."

— Josh Tobias, 2017

"I have used Digital Atmosphere for quite sometime and consider it to be one of the most straightforward, comprehensive, and operationally useful programs on my server. I have found it to be invaluable for my day-to-day analyses and forecasting as well as my ongoing research. Tim is also extremely helpful and absolutely indispensable when it comes to locating scripts, the best datasets, and even professional contacts to help make any organization as productive as possible."

— Terry W. Taylor

"The NEXRAD support is truly awesome and easy to use - and the other feature just really tops it off. This is about my sixth email tonight - the other five being to other spotters in the area telling them they just have to download Digital Atmosphere and give it a serious going over."

— David Cashion

About Weather Graphics

Weather Graphics is the creation of meteorologist Tim Vasquez. It was officially born in July 1992. It offered a single radar analysis program called RadarScan. Some surface analysis capabilities were added, and in late 1992 it was renamed Weather Pro. The success of the project led to a full-fledged surface and radar analysis software program called WeatherGraphix, which is a solid package still being used to this very day by a few MS-DOS fanatics. The software was developed entirely by Tim Vasquez to bring the forecast desk to the home. With Microsoft Windows revolutionizing PC operating systems, Tim responded in 1996 creating a Windows-based analysis program, similar to WeatherGraphix, called Digital Atmosphere. The program's code now fully capitalizes on 32-bit system architecture and represents our top-notch analysis package. In 1998 Weather Graphics went fully commercial, adding a line of additional products including RAOB, Global Tracks, Surface Archives, Upper Archives, and Digital Chart of the World, and began building turnkey systems for the EMWIN datastream technology. We also opened up a toll-free ordering line in 1999.

Weather Graphics Technologies also offers weather forecasting services, severe weather targeting services, meteorology training, and related consulting work. All programming, development, and support originates from Norman, Oklahoma and Garland, Texas.

About Tim Vasquez

Tim Vasquez is an accomplished author, programmer, and consultant. He was greatly influenced by Texas weather legends Alan Moller, Tim Marshall, and Harold Taft. As a part-time job he began writing the daily weather page for the Garland Daily News in 1984. His full-time forecasting career began in 1989 with an assignment to Det 8, 25 WS, Tonopah Test Range, Nevada, where he provided weather services for the F-117A Stealth Fighter. In 1993 he began work at 7 OSS/OSW, Dyess AFB, where he provided forecasts and warnings for the Texas B-1B Lancer fleet and participated in Operation Support Hope in Africa, and also worked part-time at KTXS-12 weather in Abilene. In 1995 he worked as a lead forecaster at the Korean theater forecast unit and was the regular on-air weathercaster at AFKN (AFRTS) Seoul. In 1996 he sought to relocate to the Norman, Oklahoma weather mecca and took on an assignment at Det 7, AFGWC with the Automated Weather Network data processing system. In 1998 Tim left the U.S. Air Force to put full time work into Weather Graphics. He greatly expanded his software products and began authoring a series of books for operational forecasters. He also began conducting training seminars and consulting work. Most recently he was recognized in the international media for his detailed studies on the weather affecting Air France flight 447 and appeared on the BBC, CBS Evening News, The Weather Channel, and other networks. He continues to live in Norman, Oklahoma.
