This came in the ARRL E-Letter today:

Letters: WXSpots

Local hams have been using a free software program from N3FJP called
WXSpots to post information to those using the software during severe
weather conditions such as thunderstorm and tornado watches/warnings.
It will also enable Internet chats with hams in the county and
surrounding counties as well as non-hams such as those citizens who
are SKYWARN trained. We are trying to encourage the use of the
software to disseminate information to and from our nets. It obviously
has some drawbacks such as electricity and Internet access and cannot
always be used by mobile stations. We think of it as one additional
tool on our belt. -- Dave Edenfield, W8RIT, Cottrellville Twp,

It's interesting that there is no mention of APRS when the two (APRS
and WXSPOTS) obviously have so much in common.
