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 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. I now have two servers, and they aren't even enough for everything I would like to do.

Many of you have been so kind to donate to the page in the past, and it has helped immensely. Patreon provides a way for you to support Tropical Tidbits in a more persistent fashion. It is not an existential necessity, and I don't expect anything, but 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

$786 of $1,000 per month
The $1,000 milestone would support two large plotting servers for making forecast model graphics, which is what uses the majority of the processing power on tropicaltidbits.com
