About the rain radar
A rain radar, also known as a weather radar or precipitation radar, is a device used to detect and track rainfall in a specific area. It operates on the principle of sending out electromagnetic waves and measuring their reflections to gather information about precipitation.
The data collected by the radar is then processed and displayed on a screen or monitor, providing a visual representation of rainfall patterns. The display typically shows different colors or shades to indicate the intensity of rainfall. Darker colors often represent heavier rainfall, while lighter colors indicate lighter precipitation.
The rain radar on this page also uses data from satellite images to provide a better coverage. This way we are able to give you a rain radar of the whole world.
