A brand new plug in is now available.
The script loads NOAA data regarding current absolute extremes for all the US states. This includes the highest ever recorded temperature, lowest ever recorded temperature, highest ever recorded precipitation in 24h, highest snowfall in 24h and highest snow depth.
The data from NOAA is checked once per day and cached.
Each record also includes the station where the particular value was measured and clicking on the station name opens a map, which shows location and some more information about this particular COOP station.
