  1. Warning sign

    Ongoing: Flood risk. Caution level: yellow (deler av Vestlandet og Sørvestlandet)

    Large amounts of rain are expected in the warning area on Sunday and Monday. The precipitation is expected as rain in low lying areas (below 1200 masl). The amount of precipitation and hence the danger of floods might vary from place to place and there are huge discrepancies in the prognosis of precipitation. Heavy rain will increase water discharge in rivers. Rapid increase of discharge in small and medium sized rivers is expected. Read the full forecast on Varsom.no.

    ConsequencesSituation that requires vigilance and may cause local damages

Weather radar for Western Norway

The map shows where precipitation (rain, sleet, snow etc) falls, the colour giving an indication of the amount.

Wait a moment, loading images...

By emitting radar waves the radar registers how precipitation moves . It will then receive echoes if the waves hit precipitation particles. The animation shows precipitation during the last hours, the last picture in the sequence being the most recent. The time at which it was taken is given (in local time) in the upper right corner.

Under certain conditions the radar waves are deflected and hit the ground instead, giving false echoes. False echoes can be recognised by being fairly motionless.
