Queridos amigos en Argentina,

estamos felices de agregar los radares meteorológicos de Ezeiza (BA) y Córdoba a la aplicación. Esto debería mejorar la calidad para ambas ciudades y estamos agradecidos de que la SMN ponga a disposición estos radares del gran proyecto SiNaRaMe.

There are ongoing server problems at Met Malaysia and this is why there was no data available for several days. We switched to a different server and now coverage is restored again for Malaysia and Brunei.

Currently the UK and Ireland are not showing up on Rain Alarm due to ongoing problems at the UK Met Office, where we get the data from. Sorry for the inconvenience and we hope they resolve it soon.

More details:
Yesterday morning there was a fire at one of the IT halls of the Met Office (luckily nobody was hurt). The technical issues this had caused seemed to be resolved in yesterday afternoon, but now they experience issues again.

Dear Firefox add-on users!

Unfortunately we had to abandon our Firefox add-on as +Mozilla Firefox became too restrictive to be able to provide a good user experience anymore. Also their review process is very subjective with an unpredictable outcome for every submission. We believe in free software and don't want to continue to support such a restrictive and forbidding development environment.

For users who still have the add-on, it will continue to work. Otherwise we would like to suggest to use +Google Chrome and our Chrome extension:

We had a big server update today!
The main change is a normalized color scale. This basically means that the rain intensities for different countries will look more similar.

Additionally we have better data now for Germany, the Netherlands, and Norway. And we are very proud to add support for Poland and Sweden!
