Precipitation maps

Precipitation maps allow you to see the amount, distribution, type and probability of precipitation over a large area. Precipitation maps can be combined with sea level pressure, wind animation and the graticule by activating the different options in the lower right corner, with one click.

Daily precipitation

This map shows the predicted amount of precipitation within one day. The amount of precipitation is expressed in millimeters (mm) and colored as shown in the map legend.

Hourly precipitation

This map shows the forecasted precipitation amounts in millimeters (mm) within a certain time period. In the menu you can choose between hourly, 3-hourly and 6-hourly precipitation values.

Accumulated snowfall

These maps show the accumulated snowfall amount within the indicated time period (e.g. next 6 hours). The amount of snowfall is expressed in millimeters (mm) and colored as shown in the map legend. For more information, see snow.

Snow depth

The estimated snow depth maps show the total amount of accumulated snow on the ground as an estimate. It is expressed as a height in centimeters (cm). The snow depth may vary substantially within small areas, as a function of snowfall, wind, slope, exposition, ground and other parameters. The height is therefore to be understood as an indication. Actual conditions can be checked under the Meteogram SNOW. More information: see Snow.
