A wet weekend ahead

This weekend looks likely to be a wet affair for some parts of the country, and once again the heaviest of the rain seems to be falling in the same wet spots as it recent months, with the driest place in western and central Scotland and western Ireland according to these 72 hour accumulations from the ICON model. The UKMO have picked out four distinct regions across the UK which they have issued yellow warnings for heavy rain.

Size restrictions

Why is it that the Met Office on their warnings page show a map and text area that is limited to just 1024 pixels wide? Even more frustrating the map they use is limited to just 675 pixels in height. The one above is three images stuck together at what I consider the minimum zoom level. The answer is most likely to do with the interface is primarily designed for mobile phones, and they can’t be bothered to do another version designed for desktop PC’s, but I could be wrong. As you can see from the line chart below it’s not to do with 1280×1024 being the most popular screen resolutions these days.
