Need Help On The Site/forum?

Recommended Posts

On a scale of one (low) and ten (high) how accurate are the NW-radar rainfall accumulation charts? They seem not too bad to me (looking at local met-o observations against the NW-radar), a wee bit of technical know-how would be appreciated!

They basically just take each 15 minute radar update, take the rain rate and divide it by four (as it's in mm/hr) to come up with a total for that period. They're then added together, so in terms of what the radar shows, it's spot on.

The only inaccuracy you may find is that the rain rates from the radar are given in 5km grids, so local variation within that is possible http://nwstatic.co.uk/forum/public/style_emoticons//laugh.gif

From what I've seen they're pretty good though.

Hi, been using the site for a while and have a suggested improvement to the navigation of the pages.

I will explain!

You have....

Netweather UK and worldwide weather forum > Weather discussion > Autumn discussion

...at the top of every page

I keep finding that I am normally at the bottom of a page when I want to use this link.

How about duplicating this link at the bottom of every page it is used.

What are other peoples thoughts on this, do you find the same?

Thanks

Dave

Just click "Top" in the bottom post, you'll then be back up at your required level.

Thanks for your reply, a good suggestion!

However for ease of use this is still 2 clicks instead of one. I find the best sites are the ones you can navigate with the least number of clicks!

You also have the option to jump back to the forum area you were in at the bottom by clicking the bold forum title between the next oldest and next newest links.

You can also use the drop down menu to take you anywhere else on the forum too :)

Unfortunately that doesn't really tie in the with focus of that sub I'm afraid as it's meant to be aimed at those who just want pretty basic and simple but detailed info as opposed to the more complex stuff.

There are some free skew-t's in the datacentre though:

Can you please tell me how I add an image in the posts? I ask because I am trying to add a picture from Chimet site and it keeps saying dynamic pictures aren't allowed (or something like that)

The netweather extra sub isn't linked into the forum at all, you need to go to this page:

https://www.netweather.tv/secure/cgi-bin/login.pl

Click register, put all your details in, then it will take you to the payment page where you can select the winter offer. You'll then have instant access.

Any problems or queries, drop me a pm, or post back into here :whistling:

Glad you like it :whistling:

I've not seen the issue of the disappearing image's myself. If you're changing the run's, we only store 2 at any one time, so at the moment you can view images from the 06z and 12z.

Aside from that I'm not sure, if it happens again could you let me know which image, which run and which timeslot :p

Hi paul

Im looking at the 850 temp & SLP on the gfs. Images showed ok up until hour 36 which showed a broken link then when i tried to back track through the earlier hours all images show a broken link. time of run is set 12, although changing it doesnt make any diference.

just closed the browser and gone back in and now it works - seems like a possible caching error maybe

Maybe an idea to just refresh the page I think, all the images are there from the 12z, so refreshing should sort any problem out.

found out what it is. It is the session cookie, i have the rain radar open in a new window and that refreshes automatically every so often which renews the session id making the one im using for the chart viewer invalid.

could that be right?

Yes, I think you're right there, it's the image protection we need to use unfortunately.

last sentence of the last but one paragraph of http://www.netweather.tv/index.cgi?action=...=winthist;sess= needs removing or editing perhaps?

A fairly good Winter, not spectacular! What will 04-05 bring?

I'm pretty sure NWextra users will be able to look that up by now - what we really want to know is what the 06-07 winter will hold in store. :whistling:

Edit:...looks like this one is the same.
