• Weather Cams for Aus

    Good afternoon, i have noticed that a few more Airports in Australia have cameras to check the weather. The site is called http://www.skycam.net.au/ . For example you could add the webcams for White Gum Airpark YWGM, add the additional three for YNTM Northam Airport etc Also i have noticed that the YPJT Jandakot Airport Notams page never has any content even though that has notams everyday.

    Cheers

  • Windy predicts extreme wind, temperature and rain

    Is 35°C too hot for temperature in Prague, in the middle of Europe, today? Yes, at this time it certainly is. But 35°C in Dubai can be a normal temperature today. But what is normal and what is extreme weather at this time of the year for any particular location in the World?

    Windy is proud to announce that we have just launched new layer Extreme forecast.

    Extreme forecast displays unusually low or high temperature, wind or precipitation, forecasted 7 days ahead. All this is based on heavy duty statistical science, using 20 years climatological data.

    So whether you work in agriculture, seek a strong wind for your kiteboarding session or want to avoid extreme temperatures during your holiday, our new extreme forecast will help you.

    But not only that. We believe, that 7 days ahead extreme forecast can help emergency services and governments all over the World save lives. And that is one of our main goals here in Windy.

    desc:How to activate extreme forecast

    Extreme forecast has values from -100% to 100%. While 50% to 80% (irrespective of sign) generally signify an unusual event, above ±80% means extreme event.

    Our Extreme Weather layer is based on ECMWF EFI (check official docs) and we can just say: "You guys (and girls) at Reading, UK do excellent job!"

    Here at Windy Extreme Forecast was implemented by Jakub on backend and me personally on frontend.

    So enjoy our new Extreme forecast and stay safe

  • RE: And yes, we can...

    This topic seems to be explosive. I understand that many people are against
    "global warming religion", but think about it pragmatically.
    If we call "Warming" the situation when "climate is changing rapidly and it is caused by mankind",
    then there are 4 options:

    A. Warming is not true and we believe it is not true
    B. Warming is not true and we believe it is true
    C. Warming is true and we believe it is true
    D. Warming is true and we do not believe it is true

    If we want to do any action we should behave pragmatically, economically, rationally.
    Consider the damage control. There are 2 faults among these options: B. and D.
    If B. is our reality we may waste our energy and money uselessly and our children will laugh at us in future.
    If D. is our case, it means that we are borrowing our wealth from future generation, our children will hate us.
    From this point of view the "panic" about Warming is completely understandable.

    If we think about what is caused by humans: Daily weather is caused by humans. If you live in big city,
    the temperature, moisture, evaporation, albedo, everything is massively influenced by human and you can measure it.
    If you look at countryside from air, you can see that the terrain is completely changed by human. It also affects daily weather.
    People have power to change the landscape, to destroy or plant whole forests.
    Greenhouse hypothesis is about composition of atmosphere. I do not want to judge whether that hypothesis is true
    or false. But people are moving fossil fuel from land to atmosphere. That is fact. One day all fossil fuel
    will be moved from land to atmosphere, it will not magically disappear.
    50000kg of airliners fuel means exactly 50000kg of waste. It is taken from land and put to air circulation.

    Rising temperature is reality. Question is: Is it caused by our technical revolution? Nobody is sure, but there is correlation.
    Do not cry, do not panic, just think about A, B, C, D.
