    We've added a brand new feature to the weather radar on Netweather today, as well as the overlays for lightning and satellite images, you can now display live tweeted weather updates from twitter, making it the first social weather radar in the UK!

    If you're a twitter user, using one of the following hashtags (#ukice, #uksnow, #ukfog, #ukrain, #ukstorms) along with a postcode or geo-location info in your tweet will plot it onto the radar map so you can share weather updates for your location.

    This feature will also go live on the Netweather Extra radar tomorrow smile.png

    The social radar is now live on the Netweather Extra radar too:

    Is it an automatic feed, or does someone have to manually plot the reports Paul?

    Yes, I'm sitting there 24/7 searching twitter for weather reports - knackering but worth it. wink.png

    Running it for the first time this morning and it really does add some local comment on rain to the radar!
