Handy web cams
« on: November 15, 2009, 07:17:25 pm »
I was looking for weather forcasts for Llandudno and found this:

http://www.llandudno-weather.co.uk/

It's a webcam that faces the Great Orme, pretty handy for up to the minute weather check and better than having to speak to Doylo.....................unless he's actually at the crag of course.
It even tells you the current Temp and humidity too. Ideal.
There must be others out there..?

watch out for the badger

You can also use Google to search for CCTV cameras connected to the net watch them, and even control some of them.  Pretty  8) eh?

This ones good for checking out conditions over in the hills (Snowdonia)for The Pass, etc

http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/northwest/sites/webcams//pages/anglesey.shtml

As is this one looking from Bangor:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/northwest/sites/webcams//pages/bangor.shtml

Between these two cams you should be able to confirm that it is indeed pissing down in the pass.

Some big freeze stills from the Flashbar/Traveller's Rest webcam on the road between Buxton and the Roaches. Best and most useful webacm in the peak.

Fucking genius. If you want to use this one, change 'cragx' to 'cress brook' (and delete the space) in the URL.  :lol:
