doppler radar loops available

19 posts in this topic

my wife just told me about this site. part of an interesting website that is part of an interesting project. both site and project are a work in progress so there are bugs in the system.

doppler radar can be a good way of visualizing the weather that is headed your way. on this site you can call up doppler loops by using the tab found near the top on the right hand side.

 

the doppler images at the moment are from sites in subic, tagaytay, cebu, and hinatuan, so national coverage is fairly good but not complete. there is, at the moment at least, an unfortunate time lag. the subic site, for example, is about 40 minutes behind real time. the cebu site is about 2 hours behind real time. the loops cover different time periods at different sites. at the moment, thursday afternoon 4pm august 9, it looks like things are clearing up for metro manila, and looking out the window i do see some sunshine. as a test for cebu the loop indicated light rain from cebu city up to danao city from 1:30- 2pm.

 

the site has more stuff that may be interesting. i haven't explored it yet.

Has anyone found a decent weather radar site for the Philippines?  I've used the one posted on this thread, but it has a lot to be desired.  Seems to be very inaccurate most of the time.  Today it's off by a day.  Tried many others including Wunderground but it doesn't loop.  I'm guessing there just aren't any good weather stations in the Philippines, thus, no good info.  But if anyone has found something better, please share.  Thanks!

Greetings! have you tried Typhoon2000.com ?

Thx, but that site seems to be just Typhoon info. and some weather for the Manila area updated every 6 hours.  I was hoping for a clear and accurate radar screen for the Cebu area.  Guess it's just not possible here.  Oh well, as they say here.... it's OK.

Greetings! But what about the live feed from satalite in right hand side? Click it and it gets bigger.

ALSO look for sat loop ,  # 5 under warnings. It shows wind direction in infrared for all asia in BW.

Greetings! I thought doppler radar was in the past as I remember it from when I was in S.C. back in the 1970's.

The place I posted gives real time satilite views, in infrared, and other track projections for all of SEA.

That is what I use to determikne what is headed to Mactan.

That site showed the typhone that sunk the ferry with all the deaths several years ago as being on top of the ferry at the same time the PI authorities said it was 500 KM away from the ferry site. since then, I do not trust any weather report they publish as they can not read a web page and get the facts stright.

This page is connected to the US Navy weather watch system on Guam, and so has good info.

I pulled up both sites and only see  either Taiwan or Northern Philippines.    RogerDat, I did open the  radar link, but it only showed me Manila and not really a clear depiction of rain.  Maybe I'm just stupid and not finding the correct link?  Thanks for your help!

      Don't know how long this has been an issue, but over the last few months Netflix and Amazon movies have been buffering, lately it has become annoying so I started looking into it.   I am in the US by the way, but think this could be an international problem. I am with Comcast Infinity and should have 20mb service with a Motorola SB6121 modem 6 to 7 years old.   This is not a rented modem from Xfinity, I own it. I have avg of 3.2 download and around 1 upload.   I contacted tech support and they were pretty good on the phone, but emphasized that this is not their modem so speeds are not guaranteed. After 20 minutes of on the phone resetting things, removing router from system they declared my modem is the problem and they want to send me one of theirs. At $10 month rental. I don't trust them but cannot seem to find a way to tell if it is the modem and cannot seem to find a way to test it.   Any thoughts on this or websites would be appreciated.

      I'm driving to SFO later today (Sat) and will land in Cebu Monday morning... pretty damn excited, not looking forward to that long ass flight. I will take a small hit at currency exchange at the airport for some quick cash, then go to a Bank by the mall later on. I am bringing some cash and trying to avoid the fees for using my CC in Cebu. Lots of tee shirts, shorts have been packed, flip flops, sandals, and a pair of comfortable slip on's and short socks for the slip on's (not for the sandals  ) some American snacks, protein bars, and I plan on buying a ton of bottled water... no tap. I had a few trips scheduled but the weather looks like it will cancel a couple of them... just going to play it by the seat of my arse.  This will be my first visit in what I hope will be many. This is a precursor to possibly living there in the coming years once my mom (who I take care of) passes... I am so out of this chit state of Cali!!!. On paper I am planning on 3 visits this year, next in July, then at the end of the year, probably Christmas time (only if I am good with the first visit) I will be meeting the woman I have been talking with for half a year, and I will be meeting a member from LINC who befriended me after I got blasted by a few on here when I mentioned meeting a woman, and how I was supposedly doing it all wrong. (Thanks to Shadow for giving me some pointers) If I don't like the Phils then my next targets are Belize and Chiang Mai (possible business op with a friend) Nothing carved in stone, but I hope the Phils works for me. I'll probably be silent for about the next 2 weeks... but no promises if I feel I need to share some pics or something. In regard to pics... I noticed on here there are very few photos of of the members or things they are doing etc... shy? Scared? Protective? Too ugly?    Peace
