Data received from the weather station, lightning detector, JMA satellites, webcam and custom generated forecasts / charts is made as accurately as possible, however as the data is automatically imported 24/7, its accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
Data from the weather station or downloaded from the internet to generate weather forecasts is not quality controlled by me and its accuracy cannot be guaranteed. As a result, please do not make any decisions based on the data on this site.
