I've had a look around BOM etc. and perhaps just can't find it, but is there a source of historical weather maps for Australia? e.g.
You'll find BOM archives here: http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/archive/index.shtml
wow, thats a good one Sprout.
haven't seen a fetch like that for a long time.
BOM archives only go back to Dec 1999, but that image of Sprout's - and it's a masterpiece - is from 1995.
Thanks Ben that's the ticket.
That link is worth every penny of my subscription. I've always wondered where I could find that kind of data and there it is. Cheers Ben.
