At the moment are there type-data available from following radars: Ikaalinen, Korppoo, Anjalankoski and Vantaa. The type may be more snowish what farer away it is from the radar. This is due to the inclination of the earth, with 0.3° angle are the pulses already at approx. 5 km above the ground at 250 km range from the radar. The map is beta.
Despite its name, the product does not show all the clouds, only shower- and stormclouds (Cumulonimbus). One requirement for thunderstorms to be able to develop is that clouds are enough high.
