Global weather display?


I just installed my first receiver and antenna with PiAware. I’m based in Mexico City and I wonder if there is any way to display a (local) weather overlay in my Skyaware map. I already enabled Nexrad but it only covers USA. I googled ant I found something about Global Weather from 3 years ago.

Radar images are easily found in other services like weather.com, so the info is available, but I’m not sure if FA has access to some of these sources.


@wiedehopf created a set of maps that have the US NEXRAD and the German DWD Radolan weather.
I am not sure if there are similar free maps for use in Mexico.
The fact that Weather.com or Accuweather.com are “free” for you in a browser doesn’t mean that they are really free - they are ad supported.
