Great question, I'd love to know myself, but I suspect it's from the same sources as met eireann, but they've just included some programming wizardry to their data to highlight certain radar reflections, I could be wrong of course.

Are you talking about

https://www.netweather.tv/?

but it does not really matter because


Netradar, and all other radar sources, use data from the UKMO which does not include Dublin

personal preference more than anything, i prefer the netweather interface over me, i also think the app shows a little more detail than me's as well, but ive no idea what they are doing differently

I find a lot less detail and accuracy with Netweather in the Greater Dublin area. If you live within this region (and we're talking over 1 million people), then Met Eireann radar is most certainly a lot more accurate.

ok false alarm but it was off air for a short while the new one was reachable.

I still dread they will discontinue it.

Yes you're correct, it was inaccessible last night when I tried it between about 9 - 945 Pm last night.

It will be gone sooner or later, I much prefer it to the clutter and nonsense of the new one just to make it look all modern and fancy.

I hope met eireann realise those who want modern and fancy are the ones who use apps for everything and probably never even seen the met.ie site.

Those of us who use the met eirann site many years want to use it because we're actually interested in the real data not crap meaningless graphics and clutter that looks a mess and takes up most of the page.

The 5 min refresh on the radar is useful if you are trying to track the progress of showers etc

Do you think we should put it on the yellow vest wish list or just organise a march on the met office in Glasnevin ourselves?

I've been using the app with the new layout, not by choice but by necessity.

It's ridiculously buggy but it works fine. Does what it needs to do.
