Thanks to the help of Tom Yoksas, and other Unidata staff, we now
have the NLDN feed available again. We also moved it to a new computer.
Please change your request from
(note, the “2” has been removed from hostname)
Products are now being sent out in 1 minute bins (instead of 6 minute)
so the data will be a little more timely.
We also have the possibility of including both cloud to ground
and cloud to cloud data. Currently the feed contains only
cloud to ground strikes. Is this something you’d be interested in?
Would it break what you are doing now?
