With the problems that have been associated with Java along with the security issues, we have converted all our unique Java radar animations to Flash. The loops will not only load faster but they use a lot less memory on your computer. The Java loops would sometimes freeze on an older machine while they they were trying to initialize. This problem has been totally eliminated along with the fact that there are zero prompts to run the loops. We think you will enjoy the new feature along with our new Buoy information for the North East and Florida.

Update….All our radars have now been converted to Flash as of 2/26/14!
Like many websites, our website uses the Java platform for some of our messaging features and radar loops. To make the program more secure, Oracle has added security measures that make it harder to run anything that is Java based. Our site uses known safe and trusted scripts that are only used when absolutely necessary to get the weather information to you. Our primary use of Java is with our unique radar loops. Our loops are unique in the fact that they contain lots of information that can be useful for not only a homeowner or business but also to storm trackers. These loops currently can only be displayed with Java.
