    I'm getting different rain forecasts on the 7/14 day and the 'rest of today'.  See attachment.  Do they cover different locales?

    thanks

    It's for the same location but using a different methodology. The main forecast is deterministic and uses the latest data. The rest of day display uses a number of the recent forecasting model updates to create a probability of rainfall, which may show a risk even if the latest run doesn't have rain in your location.

    Brilliant answer, thank you. Which methodology is more trustworthy? 😊

    Swings and roundabouts really. In a situation where there's a band of rain approaching, more often than not, each run of the model will show very similar things, so there's less need to worry about percentages. In a showery situation, they're harder to nail down, so you may be able to see the chance of catching one by using the rest of day info.

    I do find the rain radar very good at predicting whether or not my barnett gets soggy.  Keep up the good work.
