New cloud cover, astro seeing and wind forecasting website

Written by Gary on January 11th, 2009

I have been waiting patiently and finally someone has created a graphical weather map style website which forecasts low, middle and high level cloud cover, wind strength and direction, dew, astronomical sky transparency and seeing.


Currently there are forecasts for Australia, Europe and Nth America, with the data derived from the American NCEP GFS computer weather model data (ie. not from Australia’s Bureau of Meterology which is at and thus may have different forecasts).

This website will be very useful for astrophotography as well as general outdoor photographers wishing to find out the likelihood of good cloud conditions for their photos.
