While you are eating your breakfast check the radar loops to see if there is any rain imminent.
Next check the simple loops to see where cloud is building across the country.
Now check the analysis chart, comparing it with the simple loops information.
Finally check the forecast for your city – be sure to look at the extended forecast, the detailed forecast and the current conditions.
Repeat this process daily. (except the current conditions, this can be checked hourly if desired)
I wrote this post a few days ago, so all of the images are old. We are now in the shadow of a cyclone which is moving through the Gulf of Carpentaria and it is very rainy. Due to the influence of the cyclone on our weather I also have to check the current tropical cyclones page.
No wonder I never get enough work done!
