    I also use the BOM's Forecast Explorer for Vic (it's not available elsewhere yet). The predictions there are based on forecasters not simply an ensemble of model runs.

    For satalite images I use MODIS. The 250m resolution great for snow extent (and floods) if there's not too much cloud cover although the quality seems to vary with every second day being better. You can down load the images with geo-referenced files so you import them in GIS as well.

    There used to be a private AWS a little south of Jindy (possibly along the Barry Way?). Does anybody know if this is still working and have a link?

    not entirely true, they use a program called Graphical forecast editor (GFE) , it imports weather model data, then they can change it based on what they think might happen, the text you see is automatically generated by GFE.

    I wonder if an overlay could be done with forecast MSLP's or 850temps.

    The best resource for MAP ARCHIVES is http://www.australianweathernews.com ...daily synoptic, satellite images and maps back to 1996 plus temperature extremes etc. Good to see the classic weather charts. So many links within this link also

    Plus there is an unbelievable amount of information on the weather bureau's http://www.bom.gov.au in relation to historical records that no doubt gets overlooked... Go to Climate link on front page, fill in the record element u are looking for at any site in Australia and up comes the data set

    I wonder if an overlap could be done with MSLP or other variables from ACCESS.

    Seriously cool; I like all that fine detail, which is unavailable from other representations of model data.

    Going the other way (model data from satellite images) one of the prettiest images on the web is Jaxa's global real time rainfall estimate plot (here):

    One to watch for those far-off systems is the NCEP GFS ensemble, here, including the famous spag plot (broken again...).

    EDIT: Working again. I see we already had that one (in OP), but mislabelled.

    Been looking at TWC Mesocast lately. It looks pretty good, but people don't really mention it ever? Is there something wrong with it?

    Very cool. Also does currents and SST anomaly.

    Can step back up to one month (currents and SST, more for weather), and forward 7 days (weather only; click "earth"). Also can display the overlay value (e.g. SST) for a selected location (click map).

    Data is from GFS / OSCAR / EMC; SST anomalies are vs 1961-1990. (Still incredibly warm off the south coast...)

    Would anyone know what's happened with this site - ie the loop hasnt updated this year - SatAnim

    Perhaps there is an equivelant view showing cloud development over a 24 hour period in a loop?

    No, a few other people were asking about the weatherchaser and it seems he's disappeared.

    Most useful thread. Was looking for it the other day.

    May I suggest pinning it for easy reference.
