The tropicaltidbits.com website has grown a lot since I (Levi Cowan) launched it in 2012, and I hope to continue improving it and expanding the content it offers. Seeing the page visits and comments from all of you, my users, motivates me to provide more for you.

Tropical Tidbits has always been free, and that is because I love making weather data available and keeping you informed during the hurricane season. As the site grows, though, server costs increase, mostly due to the forecast models page and the data processing required to create all those plots.

Your contributions here not only help pay the bills, but inspire and enable me to keep creating new content for you.

Every little bit helps! Thanks so much.   -Levi

Thanks so much for helping me reach $1,500 / month! Your contributions now support 3 of the large plotting servers I currently use for making forecast model graphics and satellite imagery, which is what uses the majority of the processing power on tropicaltidbits.com

$2,000 / month would support 4 of them! If we get more than that, it could support the addition of brand new servers.
