I recently came across this interesting mobile weather website and when I showed my husband, it was the first time he was actually impressed with my Blackberry (usually he’s telling me to get off the darn thing!) There’s something about men and their need to keep up on the current weather.
Anyway, http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/data/paw/ is a website you can view from your Blackberry browser that allows you to view current weather from all over the place in real-time animated view. To quote the site’s own description:
“PAW is a PDA friendly weather web site that contains real-time images, graphics and text formated for display on PDA devices equiped with high resolution color displays. Content, including composite weather radar and satellite images with graphical overlay of observed and predicted data, can be viewed and controlled using web micro-browsers standard on these units. Users select from predefined geographical regions and control data type, animation, zoom and roam. National Weather Service Zone Forecast Products and Model Output Statistics are available for selected cities.”
So if you’re the kind of person that likes to keep an eye on the weather, (and I mean really keep an eye on it) even when you’re out and about, this website is for you.
