You can select from street map or satellite style displays, and can turn the legend and cloud layer off via the settings screen.

You can choose the type of radar you want to see from the radar overlay menu:

If you want to view weather radar for another area, simply click the globe button and specify a zip code or city to bypass automatic location via GPS.

More information about weather radar and weather forecasting.

The radar used by the National Weather Service is called the WSR-88D, which stands for Weather Surveillance Radar - 1988 Doppler (the prototype radar was built in 1988). As its name suggests, the WSR-88D is a Doppler radar, meaning it can detect motions toward or away from the radar as well as the location of precipitation areas.

This ability to detect motion has greatly improved the meteorologist's ability to peer inside thunderstorms and determine if there is rotation in the cloud, often a precursor to the development of tornadoes.

There are 155 WSR-88D Doppler radar in the nation, including the U.S. Territory of Guam and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, operated by the National Weather Service and the Department of Defense.
