radar of rain

It amazes me how often it can be raining all around us and not raining here. Most often it shows up on the radar, like in this picture. The arrows are pointing to a white bit of radar. White means very very light rain. All the coloured stuff (degrees of heavier rain) moves around but this white bit is nearly always there. If that bit gets coloured it still doesn’t mean that it will be raining here, if I go outside and put my hand out to feel it, it might still be dry. I think the radar is usually right, but sometimes quite optimistic!
