  1. Thanks but that is all UK specific. I should have said it needs to be global, ships move quite a bit!
  2. Not sure if this is the right place to put this, if not, feel free to move it. I work for a satellite communications company, we are building a customer facing portal which tracks ship locations amongst other metrics. One significant issue that affects their communication is cloud cover and rain. I'm looking for a solution which will allow us over lay the maps with current and historical weather information. Is there any solution anyone can suggest? We're using Mapbox for the base layer mapping. Equally, if anyone from Netweather wants to discuss this on a commercial basis, I'd be happy to talk, feel free to pm me.
  3. Hardly anything overnight at the coast, a bit drifting due to the wind. Main roads are all completely clear today though. Suspect there won't be much further disruption here.
  4. Thanks. Could be the weekend then at this rate. I'd rather they stayed there and were safe. They'll be happy enough, homesickness notwithstanding.
  5. My 9 year old daughter and her class are stuck up at High Borrans near you, supposed to be coming home today but the bus couldn't get out of Newcastle. What are the roads like up there? There is talk of them coming back tomorrow but I think that seems unlikely if this continues over night.
  6. Barely anything at the coast here, everything keeps missing us.
  7. Had to leave my car at work and get the metro home. Roads not gritted on North Shields fish quay and Tynemouth roads = one big ice skating rink.
  8. I'm guessing but is this the feature that is likely to bring the heavier snow later?
  9. http://whitleyweather.no-ip.biz/ Not mine, but less than a mile away. 1.9c and -4.4 dew point
  10. Does anyone know what the 7 day forecast widget thing on the main site is based on? It shows constant snow Tuesday to Friday for me, which seems unlikely. I understand there's a possibility of quite a bit but why does it show snow in every 3 hour time slot for about 4 days?
  11. I guess some snow will enhance the experience in any case. As long as they aren't snowed in...
