Weather 2.0

Improve your RadarBox experience with the new Weather layers!

Our weather feature has been completely revamped!

You can now overlay up to seven different weather layers relevant to flight travel and safety, such as volcanic activity, cloud coverage, wind and precipitation, right on your map. If you have a Business account, this integrates greatly with other features such as the Fleet Tracker and Airport View.

Weather layers are configured in the Weather menu, between the Flight list and Filters. There you can control the opacity and access other options for each individual layer.

Whenever you’re visualizing weather information, the date and time information for each visible layer is displayed on the bottom-left corner of the map:

Depending on your account type, you might have access to only some of these layers. You can check the features available for each type of account here.
