Site Update.

Well it’s been a while since the site has been updated, mainly due to a rather hectic and not so good 2013.  With the turn of the new year which hopefully will be quieter and kinder to us, I want to start paying attention to the site more and making some improvements. The only fly in the ointment is we are hoping to move house this year, sigh,lol.

I have just taken delivery of an HD Megapixel outdoor webcam. This will show a live view over the roof tops of Milford Haven, looking South towards Pembroke and the Velero refinery. Hopefully this will give a good indication of current weather – and incoming weather.  It will take a couple of weeks to get it up and running – I want to play with some software first, never mind  physically hardwiring them into the network – but hopefully the wait will be worth it.  There should also, if all goes well, be a time lapse video of each days weather

Also in the pipeline are the new “Steel Series” gauges for the live weather page running Weather Display Live. This should enable them to be viewed much more easily on mobile devices.  They are tricky to set up, so will do that gradually.

I’m also looking at some form of weather forecast on the front page as well. The problems are two fold  1) actually incorporating it in, and 2) finding one that will work on this site and is as reliable as possible – and believe me some aren’t!

I did experiment with a live weather warning feed, however this proved to be very unreliable and has been removed from the site for now. It will be revisited a bit later on once some of the other changes have taken place.

Keep popping back and see the changes over the next few months!
