    Australian weather image locations



    Hi all
    As of Jan 2009 I have found these locations good for Australian weather images (the order is the same as the dialog for entering them)

    Hi
    It seems the weather plugin is only displaying the jpg. Does anyone know why this might be?


    Neither the png or gif seem to display properly?

    I got GIFs and JPGs working but not PNG. There seems to be a fair number of the Australian images in PNG. So if this could be fixed it'd be great!

    Um, I'll have to check to confirm the config tonight, but I don't recall to much trouble doing it. Here's a list on things that I might have used (the final selection would have been based on what looked best to me in MP). One of the biggest issues was that some of these don't have scale bars, so it's a bit hard to know what they mean!

    For Taiwan and Asia users, I have just added some nice 400x430 static-linked satellite images to the MP wiki. These are provided by Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau.

    There's also a Taiwan rainfall map: http://www.cwb.gov.tw/V6/observe/rainfall/Data/hk.jpg
