I'm wondering, why can't we see the cloud layer on the current Radar/Satellite image of the Gorge?

Hi Doug,

I am guessing that you are using the ancient classic version of iwindsurf.com. That site goes back to the early days of the web and changes in Classic IW. have to hand-coded. It is getting harder to recruit coders from retirement homes for the laborious hand-coding as data sources for radar etc. change.

Instead, consider using the new IW. Below is an image showing some of the tools you can access using the new IW.

Zoomable Radar imagery

Zoomable satellite imagery
https://wx.iwindsurf.com/map#45.715,-121.651,9,6

One of the downsides of the new IW. is that it requires more bandwidth so I still use the classic for remote places and when I want faster loading.
