Hey weather man, the link you just posted kicks ass. All the important info in one spot.

The DOM DIR in the last column is the direction the wind is coming from correct?

If I'm reading that chart weatherman put up correctly, it looks like the playa got a bit of rain today (10 August 2011). Not too much, just a bit. Well, weather right now-- 5:18PM in Madison, WI is:

76*F/24*C, 36% Humidity, Wind NW @ 9MPH

@BAS (Hi Bucky!) No rain today. Wrong column??
Speaking of rain, the storm last year that made those pretty rainbows on Monday measured .05"- 1/20th of an inch!

@dilly Yes, direction is where the wind is coming FROM. Wind from 4:30 to the Man would be a SE wind

FWIW, I'll have equipment on playa that generates the same data table/graphs as seen on this thread.

(Bucky Badger says "Hi!")

I saw green spots going over the playa and thought it might be rain. It must be something else. :?

You sort of can with an HTML desktop gadget. Then point it to that page, or even better set it up on a script to nab images. I'm not sure they want their server hammered that much though.
