The University of Bonn (Germany, Rhineland Palatinate) operates a local rain radar. The range is about 120km around Bonn.
There are also no commercial interests behind it I think and they pass the data to you perhaps.
@Snipersupersix I think this is part of opendata of DWD, they offer radar data from all German radar stations

Here is a huge list of radar data sources, but probably mainly images and not raw: rainviewer sources Although raw data is better, a composite from images would be great beta version!
Edit: Link should work now!

In Europe we have Opera Project under the umbrella of Eumetnet that work on an European Mosaic.
You can find the animation here: http://eumetnet.eu/activities/observations-programme/current-activities/opera-radar-animation/
P.S. Sorry I did not read the introduction... you of course already know of Opera... ;)
@gabrielef71 Yes for 80.000 EUR a year even when already paid by taxpayers money.

I saw that you need radar data from Portugal, the local Met Institute provides that data, but it's probably really hard to get as they provide it in the form of an image, here: http://www.ipma.pt/en/otempo/obs.radar/
EDIT: Looks like they provide that data in a map form too: https://www.ipma.pt/en/otempo/obs.remote/index.jsp

According to my knowledge, South African weather models can be accessed from the SAWS(South African Weather Services) website. They have synoptic charts, radar and other useful data!!!

In Australia we have free access as to the government run (Bureau Of Meteorology) Unsure if they would allow this to be utilised for another weather site but worth a try.
Guys fantastic site, as a amature weather enthusiast I use it and recommend it the most. The Australian BOM will help they are flexible and progressive. There will be BOM staff with the best contact details watching this thread...
Australia has free FTP weather radar, see here: http://www.bom.gov.au/catalogue/data-feeds.shtml
