They did on their old website, I don't see any provisions for it on the new.

Just noticed on the Rainfall Radar chart on the new site has been improved. You get a choice of 12, 24 or 48 hours to aminate to. It is a far cry to just 6 hours on the new site to 12 hours on the old archive.met.ie site.

How do you select this extended range, I can't see it on the site?

I'm using a Windows laptop and I can't see any option for the 12,24 or 48 hrs. animation. Am I missing something or is it just the Android app that has the improved options?

Thats great, but now I cant find the 90min radar. Recent Rainfall Radar seems to default to the 12hr version.
It would be nice if these 3 variants had the slider option like the 90min one.

The 90 minute one is on the home page when you go onto met.ie.

The mobile version of the website defaults to 12 hour. Scroll down for links to 24 and 48 hour charts.

Madness to leave this information out, given that all the cancer prevention advice is to watch the UV Index to know when you need sunscreen.

Sort of No harm in a reminder.

Current weather is a classic example. Its the first sun this year that could cause bad sunburn but some people won't cop on because its not really summer yet.

I noticed that the rainfall radar isn't accurate at all, showed mist or light rainfall this morning over this part of Dublin and there wasn't a drop of rain/mist. I've noticed this before a lot and it shows heavier rainfall than is actually falling.
