Look at the purty colors ...

Sucks to be us
If you go to the Permalink, and then refresh the page in your browser, the radar image will update with the latest available image -- as long as the NOAA web site in Melbourne is doing its job, that is.

[updated 8/14: Click on the links for the current NWS radar imagery from Tampa, Melbourne or Key West.  The radar image shown above now is the one I snarfed up right before Charley made landfall on 8/13 and I unplugged and packed up the PC.]

You can also go here to see the radar imagery from Havana, Cuba to Mondo Melicious, FL.

Or, you could always follow this guy around Florida in real time.  He has a CCTV mounted on top of his truck and is wirelessly updating the images (several per minute) here.  It's sort of hypnotizing to watch him drive around.

Here are some Tampa area tower cams.  Facing West (gulf).  Facing East (city).
 Gulf  City

When you refresh this Permalinked page at Thunderstorms, these cams will also update, if there is a new image available.  Don't expect to see to much after dark, though.  Okay, Sparky?

It looks like the fun starts Friday.  They're talking about evacuations here.  With winds over 100 mph, it looks like we're all in for a real sloppy blow job from Charley.

If I lose this friggin' house tomorrow, I'm just gonna grab a golf club in each hand and run across the golf course like a psychotic antenna and scream for the lightning to finish me off. If I'm not too tired.
