Over the past few years, WeatherBug has made considerable effort in making sure that their weather alerting technology is available to those who need it. Years ago, simply providing these features on a person’s PC was enough . Today, WeatherBug has sought to provide their proprietary weather data on as many devices as possible. This is especially true when it comes to the mobile market.
Readers of this blog already know that WeatherBug has made a significant presence in the mobile world with their iPhone and G1 phone efforts. Well today there is something for those of us who just want something on the mobile web browser front.
On the desktop front, WeatherBug weather maps help to put a “face” to the current or forecasted weather. Now users of non-media rich phones can also enjoy near real time WeatherBug maps on the fly. Choose radar or satellite, whichever best fits your needs.

As you can see, the areas showing the highest levels of lightning activity are being shown in the different colors. And because this data is brought to you in real time, the benefit of seeing where the lightning is hitting is immediate, especially if you are outside at the time.
