New Rainfall Forecast Layers in Weather Defender

by Rory Groves        May 8, 2013  |  10:19 am  |  Category: Latest News | Tips & Tricks

New precipitation forecast layers in Weather Defender give you the ability to predict rainfall up to 7 days out. Quantitative Precipitation Forecast predicts the total amount of expected liquid precipitation in a given forecast period.

The following periods are now available:

  • Day 1: 0-24 hours from present
  • Day 2: 24-48 hours
  • Day 3: 48-72 hours
  • Days 4-5: Multi-day forecast covering 72-120 hours from present
  • Days 6-7: Multi-day forecast covering 120-168 hours
  • Days 1-7: Multi-day forecast covering 0-168 hours (the entire next week)
Here is a screenshot of Day 1-7 Forecast taken today (looks like it will be very wet in New England):

Using the new layers is simple. Just navigate to the Forecast section of the Layer Browser and scroll until you see the Precipitation layers listed (see below).

Click Add to Map under the layer(s) you wish to add. As with all layer functionality in Weather Defender, the Precipitation Forecast layers will automatically update at regular intervals.
