Enhanced East-Asia forecast – new model for Japan
We added the MSM5 model from Japan Meteorological Agency to our weather forecast offer
By comparing today's temperatures to 40 years of historic data we can see whether today's forecast is unusually warm (red areas) or cold (blue areas). Coloured dots show observed actual temperatures from professional and private weather stations.

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.
The location marker is placed on 31.5°N 99.95°E. This animation shows the precipitation radar for the last hour, as well as a 1h forecast. Drizzle or light snow fall might be invisible for the radar. Precipitation intensity is colour coded, ranging from light blue to orange.
