The forecast is calling for precipitation later in the day, but the radar is not showing anything coming to my area

  • Updated

Our radar maps are great at tracking the already occurring precipitation for six hours into the future. One of their limitations however is that they cannot predict if a new storm is expected to form. If you are seeing rain or snow in the forecast, but nothing on the radar map, it is either because the rain is expected to occur later than six hours into the future OR the rain or snow hasn’t developed anywhere just yet.
