meteoblue weather maps (meteoMaps) provide an instant overview of the weather forecast over entire regions, countries, continents and the world. On the maps, you can see one or several variables (see menu on the right) displayed for different periods of time.
The weather maps are available for 1 to 7 days.
The forecast for 8-14 days is shown in diagrams and not in maps, because of the increasing variability ranges for all variables (e.g. temperature, precipitation, probability), since the forecast is increasingly uncertain beyond 7 days. This uncertainty can not be represented on a map. In addition, the changes 8-14 days ahead are modelled at lower resolution and develop over larger areas, so that local differences disappear. An analysis of meteograms in 2 to 4 distant locations will give more insight into the possible developments and their uncertainty than a map.
On the professional maps (see picture on the right above), the model type and the variables used for the map are usually shown on the top left above the map. On the top right above the map, there is first the time of the map currently displayed and below the time of the last model run.
Large maps, which cover more than one time zone, use the date definition based on the time zone given in the legend. Therefore, some values may differ from local forecasts, since the time period used may include some hours of the previous or subsequent date on the West or East edges of the map. For local detail, consult more local maps or the local forecast.
You can visualize the country borders indicated with a thin black line.
Use the following buttons (see picture) to make the maps moving: <<, >>, play, stop. You can always see where you are in time due to the indication below the buttons.
You can also download the maps to then save it and consult it whenever you want.
