    I have been trying and trying to find a program I can download that lets me look at the radar, whats coming and going.. the rain and thunder mostly.. (or anything else, as its a good program, but thunder/lightning is a must to have).. Ive been searching for a WHILE to find a good program, but came across 1 only, and i cant read it..

    Any ideas?

    MANY THANKS (you dont know how serious i am!)

    Check your local Bureau of Meteorology they may provide this. I know in Australia at www.bom.gov.au we get 10minute updates on rain radar, and hourly satellite images. Not that it helps since it never rains anyway.

    I don't know if they have a program, but the radar is never more than 4 min behind, which is the best that I can find without spending a TON of money on real equipment. (As I use it in my truck, when I am searching for storms)

    Thought about finding live webcams or weather cams in the areas of interest?
