I would add from each other, that we are talking about the 'right alt'.

- background maps were changed from Google Maps to Open Street Maps due to change of Google data policy

Good move imho, on my archaic smartphone maps loads faster that google maps.

In all great works! Thanks.

Many people from Poland asked me about reason, why is no longer SW Poland covered by CHMI radar. It is not due to breakdown, but planned reconstruction and replacement. Bohemian radar Brdy was replaced in May/June, Moravian radar Skalky in August/September. During replacement, missing data are provided by Slovak SHMI, using radar Malý Javorník. It is too far from Poland, so SW region is not covered.

Reconstruction is almost done and if everything will be going well, operational testing will begin on Friday 11. September. Some further outages are possible, but radar data should be public since that date. Coverage will be then restored in the same extent as before reconstrution, so Lower Silesia could enjoy it again ;)

If someone could translate this into Polish and stick somewhere, it could be fine. Actual info can be found on our FB site
