I guess we're all Weather Watchers to some extent- with at least the BOM site in our 'favourites'. Another site worth bookmarking is weatherzone.com.au

Thanks Signman,
I am keen on the weather and there is always an "Elders" radar on my other screen.
This site seems like a combination of a few sources together in one overlay. Great

I'll be a member.

Cheers Cam

wow, that's owned and run by Nathan down the hall, our IT second in charge. Strange the non-work interests some of us all have. He'll be very chuffed to see it got on to this site.

My favourite is www.weatherchannel.com.au. It is very accurate and the best thing is you can put in a post code and get the weather for that place for 4 days. Great when travelling.

Another bugbears of the BOM radar images is that they only show the last 4 images....

Well, enter radar.strikeone.net.au and download/view any number of radar/satellite/lightning images in a row. :-)

They even have a Google Earth overlay which will place every radar image in Australia on the Earth....very cool, especially being all free with absolutely no registration process.

I thought it may have been a group of University Students- standing around at various places- holding up copper rods !!!!

For lightning go to GPATS, which is the system BOM uses. Click on "Lightning Monitor" on the LHS.
