Foreca Weather Maps

In the following, you can find information about the most used weather maps Foreca provides. All the maps can be animated with a seamlessly continuing sequence of images (time steps). Any map using the standardised tile indexes can be used as the background for the weather overlays. In addition to the weather layers below, don’t hesitate to ask for any other weather maps or their combinations. For instance, all the layer colours, timelines and time steps are customisable with only some limitations.

Precipitation Maps

All the Foreca precipitation maps show the intensity of precipitation separated by colour tone levels. The layers contain all types of precipitation like rain, sleet and snow. The precipitation type can be separated and expressed by different colour schemas.

radar forecast map

Radar Forecast Map

Radar Forecast Map. Radar forecast extrapolated for the following hours from the latest radar images. Foreca predicts how the observed rain front moves to create a continuous series of images for up to 2 following hours. This forecast is commonly used as a visually seamless continuation from radar images.

Radar is available for a limited number of geographical areas only. For further information, please contact us.

nowcast map

Nowcast Map

 Foreca Nowcast provides the most accurate precipitation forecasts for the next 2 hours. Nowcast is based on a global atmospheric forecast model data which has been improved with the latest observational information from weather radars, weather stations and satellites. 

Available for Europe.

forecast map

Forecast Map

 Precipitation forecast maps use coloured contours to show the forecasted rain/snow. Precipitation forecast maps are based on atmospheric forecast model data.

Coverage is global.

Cloudiness Maps

Cloudiness maps provide information of cloud movements as forecasted or observed from weather satellites.

 
cloudiness satellite map

Satellite Image Map

Satellite images show the movement of clouds photographed from space by the weather satellites.

Global satellite images with the whole world on the same map is a real attention grabber. In satellite images, you can observe cloud movements for larger areas, which enables you to see big weather phenomena at a glance. You can spot hurricanes and deep low pressures and sometimes even estimate their tracks.

air pressure map

Air Pressure Map

 Air pressure forecast maps show the air pressure forecasts for upcoming days. From these maps, the user can spot, for instance, important low-pressure and high-pressure centres and their movements. For air pressure maps, the cloudiness and/or precipitation forecasts are often added.

Don't hesitate to ask for any other weather maps to suit your needs.
