This weeks rainfall
With rainfall and flooding still such a hot topic, I thought I would continue with my updates to my Web Radar application. Here are the estimated totals from the weather radar since Tuesday, they are overlaid with totals for most of the SYNOP observing sites across IONA. I can now process any number of days of radar images – why I never made these changes before now beats me. I’m not sure that I like this colour scheme which I use to colour each pixel of the chart, but at least now I can create any number of colour schemes to suit the accumulations of precipitation that have occurred. As you can see the heaviest of this week’s precipitation has been in the northwest, whilst extreme eastern and southern parts have escaped the worst of it.
