Tracking the weather has become a more involved process progressively in recent decades. Weather satellites, webcams and all kind of modern technology have helped meteorologists with thier tracking. In fact, it’s not all left to the meteorologists. There are plenty of cameras available to the public. While charting climate patterns may not be something the average person is going to do, keeping better track of the forecast is now more easily possible.
These cameras help people keep an eye on what is going on in a particular location. They give you eyes where you might not otherwise have had them. Take for example someone planning a vacation to a particular city. Let’s say you have that beach vacation in mind, and the day is coming up fast. You want to know more than just the local report. Beaches are easy because there are always beach streams avilable.
It was mentioned that the earth webcams are part of the monitoring system that is available. When you watch forecasts on local news stations, you will see the meteorologists using them. I see that all the time when I watch the local news here because of the whole beach steaming thing. The meteorologists love to use the beach to accentuate their forecasts.
The beach do make for glamour shots on television, too. In other locations, however, meteorologists still use these and also traffic cams. You might not have thought about the fact that they often cover the traffic, too, during their forecasts. At the same time, remember that it’s about what you have access to online as well.
After doing a simple search for weather cams, I pulled up a site that showed all kinds of feeds for cities near me. There is one planted on a baseball field, one on a parking lot and there is a stream for just about anything you can think of. You can check them out for all kinds of location. Having eyes on the scene is much different than just being able to know the forecast for a city.
There is a big difference between knowing that the forecast calls for rain in the city and to be able to see if it’s raining in a particular location. You don’t just see rain but the whole scene. Naturally, they aren’t stationed at every single area of every city out there. But as we move into the future, you can bet that there are going to be more of them as the world becomes even more connected.
You can search specific cameras quite easily. Like I said, I was just searching for live camera feeds in general and found that site right away. It features streams from all over the area. You also get the forecast details, and you can look at how the forecast is going to change over time, too. These streams provide quite a lot of information, and you still have those forecasts to work form as well. Are you ready to see some of the live feeds in your area?
