Web Site Modifications

Just a few small modifications to the Chatteris.biz Weather pages:

1) The current spate of lightning has caused a problem of page formatting, originally when a storm cell was detected, the information was displayed inside the header of the page, as the lighting cells grew and the information increased, this caused the web page to overrun and loose formatting, I posted the problem in the wxforum.net forum and Wim sorted the script in moments.

Only when lightning cells are detected, will the page header show the lightning alert against a red background, clicking on this message will show the information, I have also added a clickable shortcut to the lightning map page and also a clickable link to how to set a lightning alert up.

Weather alerts page can be accessed from the menu as always.

2) Tidied up the wxspace pages and the radio ham information by adding additional links and sorting page validation errors.

3) Added information on lightning types.

4) Alert message when the weather station is going offline to protect its sensitive and expensive lightning detection equipment, this equipment failed last year due to a storm and I don’t want a repeat, I think the issue was the imbalance in ground potential, so in future when a large storm is over Chatteris, the broadband and external aerial will be unplugged.
