The Best UK Google Map API Mashup Ever?

update 20th July 2009
This is now back up and running as you see it here on the blog. The Met Office reverted the code last week after this blog post

There was a sneak peak of this a few weeks ago, but the update to this is truly amazing.
This has the 'super wow' factor.

Full Credit to the Met Office on this and picking up on feedback from webs users and readers of this Mapperz Blog

Anyone have any info on how theyve set this up and whats going on behind the scenes?
Like where the data is being pulled in from (DBMS, GeoRSS, GeoServer,ArcSDE, etc) and also if they have relied on other technologies other than just the Google Maps API.
Very impressive.
