Rain Radar? (one for the Mods)

  1. :idea: Just an idea guys...how about having a prominent link to a rain radar? I'm sure all forum members would find it useful in judging when to make that dash home (perhaps even try out our wet weather riding :wink: )

    What do you think?

  4. Yes, well I'm sure some don't...would be good to have up for all, just a thought :D

  6. If you have one of those mobile phones that does internet, you can probably see it on there, if you're out and about and approaching weather concerns you.

    Someone in one of the newsgroups that I'm subscribed to, developed a service especially for mobiles (WAP or GPRS, I forget which). It'd download a snapshot of the radar image suitable for the mobile application. If I find it I'll post a link here.
  7. That was the link that I've been meaning to find.
    Mostly, I've used the BOM four day weather forecast.
    Thanks, Matt. :D
  8. I go to weatherzone.com.au for that
