Weather guru goes online

Daily Mercury - - NEWS -

L&K MACKAY Se­vere Weather now has its own web­site.

The lo­cal weather fore­caster Liam Leonard has steadily been grow­ing his Face­book page, so de­cided to branch out by launch­ing a web­site.

“Af­ter six months of plan­ning and three months of build­ing L&K Mackay Se­vere Weather re­leased its very own web­page,” he said.

“With over 13000 fol­low­ers on our Face­book page, I be­lieve it’s time to bring our very own web­page onto the in­ter­net.

“With the help of Sally Em­brey, we have put in nu­mer­ous hours putting the page to­gether, us­ing fol­low­ers pic­tures they have sent in to use as back­grounds for the page.”

Sev­eral tabs on the page include, cur­rent se­vere weather events, live Face­book page feed, live weather sta­tion read­ings from head­quar­ters, four-day fore­casts (cur­rently in BETA mode) for the Cen­tral Coast and Whit­sun­days districts and a feed­back sec­tion.

“We will still be run­ning our Face­book page con­sis­tently which will also have live up­dates dur­ing se­vere weather events as well,” he said.

The web­site is www.mack­ay­sev­ereweather.com.au
