Cloud cover map – current cloud forecast & cloud prediction

Cloud cover map is an important tool for predicting the weather. It can help you track the movement of clouds and see how the weather is developing. Here’s how to read and interpret a cloud cover map.

How to read the cloud cover map?

First, you should know that cloud cover map only shows the movement of clouds, not rain or snow. This is important to note because rain and snowfall are usually slower than cloud movement. Therefore, you may see movement on the map but not expect rain or snow. If you see movement on the map, it means the clouds are moving in that direction.

The movement of the clouds over the last hour can be played back using the play button. The colors on the map indicate how strong the motion is. The stronger the movement, the darker the color. If you see a dark color on the radar, it means that the clouds are moving very fast in that direction. This is often a sign of bad weather. However, if you see only a slight movement, it usually means the weather is good or not going to change much.

If you see multiple colors on the weather radar, it means the clouds are moving in different directions. This is usually an indication of unsettled weather. If you see no movement on the radar, it usually means that the weather will not change.

How does the cloud cover map work?

Clouds are made up of water vapor or ice. Most clouds form when warm air rises. When this air meets cold air, the water vapor condenses and clouds form. Cloud cover map works by tracking the movement of clouds. Radar is used to send out waves and receive the reflected waves.

Depending on whether the waves are reflected from a solid or liquid surface, you can tell if there are clouds there. So what cloud radar shows are the movements of clouds.

Who uses a cloud cover map?

A cloud cover map is a weather information system that provides regularly updated readings of clouds and their movements. It can be accessed online or as an app and is suitable for various target groups such as weather enthusiasts, amateur meteorologists, pilots, sailors and windsurfers. Cloud cover map is one of the most popular weather information systems and has a high number of users.

How do clouds form?

Clouds are actually nothing more than moist air. But it is not the case that clouds simply consist of water vapor escaping into the atmosphere. Rather, clouds are formed because the sun heats the moist air. When the earth cools, the water vapor condenses and forms fog.

What do rain clouds look like?

It’s really quite simple: clouds are nothing more than air that is stirred up. They can look very different. Rain clouds, for example, are usually dark and dense because they contain many water droplets. Snow clouds, on the other hand, usually look white and fluffy because they contain many ice crystals.

Which clouds are dangerous?

Cumulus clouds are the most common type of cloud and are usually harmless. They look like fluffy white balls and are often a sign of nice weather. However, they can also herald thunderstorms if they become too large and dense. Nimbus clouds are the most dangerous clouds because they are associated with rain, snow or hail. They look like thick gray or black cumulus clouds and can precede extreme weather conditions.
