Radar image forØrskog (Sjøholt) observation site, Ørskog (Møre og Romsdal)

  1. Warning sign

    Ongoing: Landslide risk. Caution level: yellow (Vestlandet)

    Rain followed in some places by heavy showers is expected. The amount of precipitation, or its location, is somewhat uncertain. Follow the weather radar on yr.no or varsom.no. Steep slopes, as well as streams and river with high discharge are particularly exposed. The amount of water in the soil is significant. Read the full forecast on Varsom.no.

    ConsequencesSituation that requires vigilance and may cause local damages

    InstructionsKeep away from steep slopes, as well as streams and rivers with high discharge. Cleaning of drainage paths and culverts are recommended. Read more at NVE

  2. Warning sign

    Ongoing: Flood risk. Caution level: yellow (Vestlandet)

    Large amounts of rain are expected in the warning area. Heavy rain will increase water discharge in rivers. The discharge is already high in many rivers, and heavy rainfall may cause local flooding. Read the full forecast on Varsom.no.

    ConsequencesSituation that requires vigilance and may cause local damages

    InstructionsStay informed on the development of the weather and the hydrological situation by following the weather forecast and weather radar, as well as updates on varsom.no. Secure and/or move assets away from vulnerable areas (car, caravan along rivers/streams, basements). Keep waterways clear of sediments, garbage, twigs and leaves. Read more at NVE

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.
