Today's work was finishing up the scraping of timestamps on tropical weather outlooks for cyclocane.

The Bureau of Meteorology's was the hardest. They have 3 different regions for their outlooks (Western, Northern, and Eastern) and each of them seem to have a different date format.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center's outlooks were a piece of cake by comparion, though hilariously, they're the ones who currently are reporting that one of their outlooks was issued a month ago. Ya know, instead of today.

For now, the only place where I'm using this newly available raw data is on the tropical storm risk page in the listing near the top.

I plan to do more with the raw data tomorrow.
