NOAA weather icons

Posted by in weather

I’ve just added another weather icon look-up table to my weather icon store. This one maps my own 92-icon sets to the weather condition codes for the National Weather Service from the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration).

The lookup table comes as a text file with tabbed entries for the NOAA Icon name, weather condition description, and the corresponding numbered icon from my sets.I’ve pasted the main part of the look-up table below, but there are also extensive notes included which explains a few additional options, plus all of the ‘extra’ weather types currently bundled into one icon on the NOAA site for which I have a more appropriate icon available.

You can find all of the weather symbol look-up tables on the store page, listed under the title ‘Weather Condition Codes’. Weather data that you can map to my symbol sets include World Weather Online, Weather Underground, Open Weather Map, Forecast.io, the UK Met Office and Yahoo! Weather.

And now the National Weather Service (NOAA) is added to the list!
