Beginning to think the Netweather rain radar is a bit naff.
It shows rain over MM and there is none
Move it on from 'latest' and shows rain to come and there is none.

Don't like having to re-set the opacity evertime.

Met'O INVENT whilst not ideal, at £0.00 is probably the better buy.

Last few days of drizzle havent shown up on any of the radars. Perhaps they are not as accurate as they say ?

Darren - I think your problem may have been the rainfall evaporating before it reached you. Radar thinks its raining but it evaporates before it gets there ( just a thought)
