Next-Hour Precipitation Rolling Out in Weather App in UK and Ireland [Updated]

Multiple MacRumors readers in the UK and Ireland have noticed that the built-in Weather app now supports next-hour precipitation readings, a feature that appears to have rolled out recently.

uk next hour precipitation
Next-hour precipitation details have been available in the United States and Canada since the launch of iOS 14, but had not expanded to other countries prior to this week. The new precipitation charts appear to be showing up for those running both iOS 14.4 and iOS 14.5.

Apple added next-hour precipitation to the Weather app after its acquisition of Dark Sky in March 2020. Precipitation charts offer minute-by-minute weather predictions based on precise location.

Update: Dutch website iCulture reports that the precipitation feature is appearing in The Hague, suggesting rollout is happening in the Netherlands and France, too.

I always thought in the UK you simply look out the window - if it's raining then it's raining - and if it's not, it soon will ;)

The idea it always rains in the UK isn't true. It has as much or less rainfall than a lot of places in the world.
