I did very badly trying to find any sort of live weather map for UK.
The apps I could find were all US based, and as we were driving through some rather stormy weather back from Harlow I was trying to find something a tad more live. Saying the forecast for here and now was "light showers" did not cut it given the nature of the storms we were driving through.
Ironically the best overview I could find was the A&A storm tracker which geographically maps where lines are losing sync on ADSL!

http://www.raintoday.co.uk/ has about as close to live as you're going to get.ReplyDelete
I use www.weatheronline.co.uk (with a subscription) which gives some pretty good data. It was recommended to me by a BBC weatherman as being the best out there without paying thousands to the Met Office.ReplyDelete
I use an app called WeatherPro on iPhone (same data as www.meteogroup.co.uk). Worked great this weekend while campingReplyDelete
Still Meteo? but different access:ReplyDelete
Play with the lat & long to set you neck of the woods.
For thunderstorms http://www.blitzortung.org/ReplyDelete
For rainfall, not exactly live but updated every half-hour, http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/radar/index.html
and for a ton of links to weather sites: http://www.greatweather.co.uk/ReplyDelete
www.wunderground.com will give you local weather supplied by people who have their own little weather stations. Many have webcams (mine does) and there's also the wundermap (the link appears near the weather station location) and the tabs allow radar, satellite and webcam viewsReplyDelete
Thanks for all the suggestions.ReplyDelete
UK weather radar, updated every half hourReplyDelete
Another vote for Weather Pro here, excellent iPhone and iPad apps. Forecasts seem to be more reliable than the BBC/MetOffice ones and the rain radar is good.ReplyDelete
www.sat24.com is good for cloud types etc.ReplyDelete
