Find weather maps of the state of Florida is on weather-related websites such as AccuWeather.com, as of March 2015. The website of news channel WESH Orlando also provides a real-time weather map.
The AccuWeather website provides a Doppler radar map to show the movement of weather patterns. With the Florida region displayed, a user can click on the Play button at the top of the map. The colored regions that move around the state correspond to different types of weather. Yellow and orange areas indicate heavy rain, while green areas indicate light rain. An absence of color lets users know that precipitation is not present.
When using the AccuWeather map, users should pay attention to the time stamp in the top-left corner. As the map changes, so does the time. The movement and direction helps to predict the path of storms.
The Florida weather map on the WESH Orlando website uses a different layout. In addition to precipitation indicators, the map shows cloud cover using white patches in varying levels of transparency. The map also features its own color key for snow, rain and mixed precipitation. Users can zoom in or out to specific regions. The Play button shows the movement of the clouds and patches of precipitation.
