Yeap - I have that one embedded in my website but generally use this one for cloud cover on a day-to-day basis (switching to infrared when it's dark  ;) :thumbup:): http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/observations/stroud-gloucestershire#?tab=map&map=SatelliteVis&zoom=7&lon=-2.22&lat=51.75&fcTime=1397427300

As it's updated with a new image every 15min you can see the bands of cloud coming before they arrive  :'(
