The rainSPOT shows the precipitation around you. Your current location is in the center. In this example, there is light rain about 10 km northeast and heavy rain 5 km southwest of you. rainSPOT is a simplified weather radar map that works for a 7-day forecast as well. It also indicates spatial uncertainty: If the entire rainSPOT area is solid blue, it is more likely to rain at your location than if there is only a few blue boxes.
The predictability indicates to which extent you can rely on the current weather forecast. With high predictability, the weather will very likely be as forecast. With low predictability, the weather forecast is uncertain and more frequently wrong. In this case, consult the forecast updates more frequently before making important decisions which depend on the weather. Predictability is computed by comparing hundreds of forecasts made by national weather services and institutions around the world.

The real-time satellite image combines visible light during daytime with infrared radiation during nighttime. At night, the image is not dark as infrared radiation can detect temperature differences. Unfortunately, low clouds and fog are difficult to distinguish from ground temperatures and thus can be almost invisible during the night. Meteosat satellite images for Europe are updated in real-time every 5 minutes. GOES-16/GOES-17 (North & South America) and Himawari (Asia) images update every 10 minutes.
Precipitation is estimated from radar and satellites. Precipitation estimates from satellites are less accurate at night than during daytime. Orange crosses mark places where lightning was detected (over Europe).
