Meteox – phone and PC weather radar

image I’ve been playing with Meteox and it’s pretty cool. It gives you a composite weather radar for most of Europe based on inputs from national weather authorities.

It was useful last week when there were complicated weather systems over the UK and I had to get to Cardiff and then to France.  I could see where the fronts and troughs were and plan my routes and timings accordingly.

There is also a neat Windows Vista gadget and a version you can access on a PDA or smartphone. 

It’s not as good as an in-plane weather radar or the satellite download weather you get in US Cirrus planes but it’s pretty useful.
