Weather Maps and Satellite Images

Choose from the drop down menu a range of maps, satellite and radar images showing rainfall and other weather conditions, uv index, humidity forecast, fire danger index, solar radiation, river conditions, sea levels, coastal wind and swell.

Time Stamps

Satellite images are time stamped in "UTC" (Coordinated Universal Time), which is equivalent to GMT or Z time (Greenwich Mean Time). This is the start time of the reception of the top of the image from the satellite. It takes approximately 30 minutes for MTSAT-1R to complete a scan and the image is available on the Web within 30 minutes of completion, i.e an hour after the time stamp.
