Satellite, rainradar and lightning combined
This page shows a combined meteo image of the current rain, satellite and lightning strikes over the UK and Ireland. The data is updated every 5 minutes. At night you will see dark images as the satellite is an exact reflection of daylight and night. The radar is put on top of the satellite allowing to view the development of clouds, rain and lightning over the past hour.
The colors in the radar image reflect the rainfall. A white color means light rain. The more blue the color contains the more rain. Red or purple means heavy rain.
