Storm chase with webcams to stay safe & dry

by JT

February 15, 2020 0

Our carefully created curated list of webcams is a top way to storm chase and be safe and dry at the same time.

Find links to cams across southwest counties of Devon, Cornwall and Dorset to storm chase those waves.

Webcams are also great if you are going to explore the southwest on holiday and want to check out the conditions before you travel/ set sail/ get onboard; or they’re  just a way to enjoy some great seascapes wherever you are – find out more about our OCEANROCKS story  and why being by the sea is good for you.

Find some links below to a range of great webcams in Cornwall, Devon and Dorset. They cover off popular surf beaches and holiday hot sports including Newquay, St Ives, North Devon and the Jurassic Coast. We’ve even got links to traffic cams too, so you can check out the jams before setting off.

Do let us know if you know of any other great web-cams that we can stick on the list.

These links all go to external sites so OCEANROCKS can’t be responsible for the content, so please use all your normal online commonsense whilst browsing.  We’ve checked all the links, and they all work at the moment – but webcams are notorious for going wonky, packing-up or getting turned-off, so apologies if that’s happened.

Live Traffic Updates & Webcams

Before you get to the sea, surf and scenery stuff you might want to check out the info. below on Traffic webcams first.

OK, so watching traffic is pretty boring. But a quick check on your phone could make the difference between sitting on a beach all day and sitting in your car all day. Your call!

You can access webcam latest images from Traffic England from the network on main highways across the whole of the country. Useful.

On the home page go to the ‘Map Layers’ button and select cameras from the menu. And all the camera locations pop up on the map!  Just click on the one you want to look at.

Safe journey…
