Default Real-time weather

Not sure where to put this thread so it can kick off in here in the lounge until someone decides on a better place for it.

Scattered around the world are sites which give blow-by-blow descriptions of the local weather in great detail. Fivemack and I, for instance, live within a few km of
http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/dtg/weather/

Do any other posters here have similar sites which let us see what's happening in their location.

We're having a nice thunderstorm right now. Real time locations of lightning bolts are mapped at http://www.blitzortung.org/Webpages/index.php?lang=en where one can see big ongoing storms in East Anglia, the Pyrrenes, the Alps and Romania/Bosnia.

Our storm has sent the cats and chucks dashing for shelter. Thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening.

Not exactly the same, but during Hurricane season I always have the Weather Underground's WunderMap open in a window on one of my virtual screens.

On the danish meteorological institute we can see on the map the current temperature, airpressure (lufttryk), humidity (luftfugtighed), windspeed (vind) and so on:
http://www.dmi.dk/vejr/maalinger/vejret-lige-nu/

We can see rain and snow on the radar with like 15-25 min delay:
http://www.dmi.dk/vejr/maalinger/radar-nedboer/

and lightning strikes on the map updated hourly:
http://www.dmi.dk/vejr/maalinger/lyn/

Here is an example of what lightning map looks like after a thunderstorm:

I also have been using WU for years for local (mine and elsewhere) weather.

And information about the height of the boundary layer (camada limite)?
In Portugal we have it, check here: http://meteo.ist.utl.pt/
Info about temperature (temperatura), humidity (humidade), clouds (nuvens), precipitation (precipitação), wind velocity (Vel. Vento), wind direction (dir. Vento), pressure (pressão), height boundary layer (camada limite).

Also

with some info about lightening strikes:

Have you found an integrated-over-time lightning chart - I suppose I'd like to see the integral over a year. I absolutely hadn't realised how routine big thunderstorms were in southern Europe in the summer.

I'd like to know what are the chances of continuous rainfall over Wimbledon until the end of the week.
