Have checked, but the only radar I can see is for US only. I am after a UK radar weather app for live weather predictions for when I am out.

Thanks for pointer

Are you really looking only for an app? There are some acceptable mobile weather websites with animated radar. But if you are aware of those and want an app, then disregard.

I would be happy with a website (i'd put it as a bookmark). What ones do you have in mind?

Well, the site I was thinking of - weather underground - shows weather and forecast for UK (I tested using London) but not animated radar.

I did some searching and didn't find much. I did find Southampton Weather - Mobile Phone/PDA which has animated radar covering UK and part of western Europe. It doesn't appear you can zoom in.

Well, thanks for doing some research for me - I will take a look at those sites and hunt for possible others.

Cheers for your time

Ok, I have sent a link to my mobile, got the page up, but there is a big blank area where the animated weather map should be? any ideas if this is possible to be shown?

It is available for the blackberry as an app, but at a cost - which I'm not really that obsessed by!

Are you talking about the link I posted, or the one you found?

Southampton Weather - Mobile Phone/PDA works on 9700/5.0.0.714.

At any rate, if you are having trouble, check your browser settings. Enable 'support javascript' and enable images and background images, etc. I believe I have everything enabled except popups. If you are on an older OS that may be your problem. If you are on OS 6 then you shouldn't have any problem, just check your browser settings.

I was refering to the one that I found (raintoday). I have checked all my browser settings and all are enabled but no joy. I am on OS 4.5.0.180 Platform 2.7.0.105

Is there a newer version for the 8310?

I'm apparently seeing same thing as you on the raintoday site. I saw that when I was searching. The big graphic that shows in a full html browser doesn't show on the BlackBerry browser with OS 5. So even if you can upgrade to 5 it isn't going to help you with that site.

Well thanks for looking into that for me - I'm sure with some searching I will find something.

Yes - would be useful if anyone else finds a webpage or app which can be viewed on the Blackberry.
