The Drop Down Menu:
The top, side bar, drop down menu (US-Canada Radar) has all of the pre-set United States lower 48 Regional locations as well as Alaska, Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Guam.

The "Wind Barbs & Temps" gives the name of the station, the current temperature, wind direction and wind speed for each location.

Trop Storm Tracks:
When "Trop Storm Tracks" is selected a graphical storm track and cone of track possibilities will show on the map when a tropical storm is present.

Station Markers:
There are 4 options for "Station Markers", plus 3 general qualifiers. The Station Data can be the Temperature, Precipitation, Wind or Wind Gusts. The 3 qualifiers are elevation related. You can show the markers for all elevations, or show only elevations above 500 feet, or 1000 feet.
