Satellite cloud cover (past 2 hours)

  • Precipitation:
  • <0.04”
  • 0.04-0.08”
  • 0.08-0.20”
  • >0.20”

The location marker is placed on Edinburgh.

This animation shows the cloud cover as observed by satellite. High clouds and clouds with vertical development are displayed in white, low clouds and fog in grey. This map uses infrared satellite telemetry to calculate the temperature of the clouds. Low clouds and fog are difficult to distinguish from ground temperatures and might therefore be inaccurate.
Precipitation is estimated from radar and satellites. At night precipitation estimates from satellites are less accurate than during daytime. Orange crosses mark places where lightning was detected (over Europe).
