Hi All,

I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm the author of WXSIM, and am always interested in feedback and new ideas for the program. I also will be checking this forum frequently in case anyone has questions about WXSIM. The fully functional version (except not customized for your site - that's what registration is for) is available here on Tim's site, and also on my web page at

http://members.aol.com/eburger/wxsim.html

The latest version is 8.9, and I'm beginning to consider ideas for the next release. I look forward to any questions or comments you might have. :-)

Hello there Tom :wink:
Nice to see you making your presence on the forum as well. Well I did suggest this earlier for a future version of wxsim :
some kind of comparison-module which would enable you to compare runs taken at different times in a graph or in some kind of text-output window ( or even better: both :D )

Could there be anyway to add severe weather forecast to the software?

WXSIM does include a large number of stability or convective weather indices in its output, like lifted index, Showalter index, K-index, total totals, and also European ones like Boyden and KO. It also has its own 'convective bulletins', which are kind of an experimental combination of the above. Being largely a 'single-site' model, though, it doesn't have a clear enough picture of what's going on around it to see the apporach of actual severe weather - just the potential or general likelihood of it.

Hope that helps!

Tom
