The Cloud Maps show the cloud cover around your local area. This allows you to see how widespread the cloud is across the region and the chance of sunshine.

  • Click on Forecast then on cloud maps from the left menu bar.

  • The Cloud Maps shows you how widespread the cloud cover is across your forecast area.

  • All white indicates full cloud cover. The cloud maps can be displayed at 50km resolution worldwide and at 8 kilometer resolution, in the high resolution areas. Generally the 8km resolution maps will be more accurate.

  • Hover your mouse pointer on the maps for detailed data of that point, or click the pointer on a point of interest.

Use the animation controls to play or pause the animation, or click on the timeline to jump to a forecast time. Use the zoom controls on the map, or your mouse wheel, or the trackpad in your laptop to control your view.
