Weather Report

Would it be useful to post weather conditions so that those on the move had some heads up? Perhaps more useful when the weather is crap.

For example I'm in wellington at the moment and its been pissing down. The truck cab is fogging up and there is a fair bit of surface water. There is low cloud now and steady drizzle.

good Idea, but maybe only out of the ordinary weather? - those conditions are just normal Wellington weather.

Taz's log, Chinese calendar date 4713, Ding-Chou(Ox) - Leap, 4

Location: Waikawa pub bathroom stall
Precipitation status: Lingering, not right in your face lingering, but still making its presence known moist, in all the wrong places. The kind of moist you don't invite to public parties.
Wind participation: Only a mild effort at mixing with others but putting forth a slight hint of BO and digested raisins
Road conditions: Dyslexic with mild asthma, possible chromosomal imbalance but on the upside there is a firm tolerance to lactose and gluten
Wildlife: No sign of wolves...yet
Light level: Mens report: Non blinding Womens report: Turkish yellow hue with hints of Bora Bora blue and Sandfly Point off moose fuschia. Quite light but also somewhat dark.

Think that covers most things

Not a bad idea for something recent serious serious, but there is already the AA roadwatch site and weather cams to be fair. There is a phone app that reads the weather out over 30 mins - few hours depending on your settings. Cloudy with a chance of meatballs type thing.

The crazy thing is this is what he's like without stimulants



This is my favorite map for checking out wind patterns, it was real handy when TC Pam was moving through as you could see exactly where it was and how fast it was moving.
