Starting 17th Jan 2010, I've started a daily archive of the SkippySky maps
at  <http://www.skippysky.com.au/> http://www.skippysky.com.au/archive/

The data used for SkippySky is the NOAA/NCEP GFS NWP model, as used by a

it doesn't always get it right, more so in winter when frontal activity is
especially vigorous.

PS : Oh, until I can refine my javascript to only show buttons for existing

 don't expect to find data archived into the future if you decide to click
on the Sept button, for example...
