Your Weather on metservice. How does it work? The WOW System was developed by the Met Office, with support from the Royal Meteorological Society and the Department for Education in the UK, to provide an online hub for UK weather observations which helps educate children about weather and encourages further growth in the UK’s amateur weather observing community. Despite its UK focus, the WOW System now has global coverage and has attracted visits from weather enthusiasts in more than countries.
This approach enables us to add other useful information, such as weather cams and traffic cams, in the same single view. We intend to grow the types of weather-related information that you can access from Your Weather pages, so let us know what you would like to see! How do I get my observations onto Your Weather?

Highways in Australia In Australia, a highway is a distinct type of road from freeways, expressways, and motorways. The word highway is generally used to mean major roads connecting large cities, towns and different parts of metropolitan areas. Metropolitan highways often have traffic lights at intersections, and rural highways usually have only one lane in each direction. The words freeway, expressway or motorway are generally reserved for the most arterial routes, usually with grade-separated intersections and usually significantly straightened and widened to a minimum of four lanes.
The term motorway is used in some Australian cities to refer to freeways that have been allocated a metropolitan route number. Roads may be part-highway and part-freeway until they are fully upgraded. The Cahill expressway is the only “named” expressway in New South Wales , which opened in , the first in the region. They are marked by a blue number sign.
