Radar image showing observed rainfall rates provided as a map overlay
A set of single tile images in the form of map overlays to show recent rain rates in mm/hour over the UK.
Single tile map layer images are updated every 15 minutes with a 15 minute delay due to processing times.
The map layer is provided without a map, the boundary box for this image is 48.0 to 61.0 degrees north and 12.0 degrees west to 5.0 degrees east.
The image layers are currently made available in a Mercator projection, it is the same projection used by Bing maps, OpenStreetMap, Google maps, MapQuest, Yahoo maps, and others.
