Welcome to Tinkernut.com's video cast. If you enjoy these video's, please suport them by subscribing or commenting. In this video I am going to go over how to use free software to create your own desktop weather radar... ...so you can keep track of weather and storms on your own desktop. The first program we're going to need to accomplish this is called Google Earth. Do a search for that and click on the "Downloads" link and it will take you to their main website... ...where you can agree to the terms of agreement and then download the program. Since it is free and you don't have to sign up or pay for anything, go ahead and install it to your computer. When it is through, click "Run Google Earth" and it is going to start up the program. This is what the program is going to look like when it first starts up. Once you have gotten to this point, the next thing is going back to google and search for "weather radar kmz". If you live in North America, you want to select the first result, which is the National Weather Service. Select the state and choose a radar image and click submit to download the radar image for your area. Then go back to Google Earth and go to "File" and "Open" and select the KMZ file that you downloaded. If you don't live in America, do a Google search for weather KMZ files until you find one for your area and then follow the same steps. To know this is working, you will see two logo's at the top and you will see the field on the right hand side. Then you can keep track of it for yourself as it updates every two minutes. That is it for this tutorial, for more go to www.tinkernut.com.
