7. How do I read the graphs?

The first graph shows the overall conditions as icons, as well as a line showing the temperature over the course of the day. In the event of precipitation, blue bars at the bottom of the graph will also show how much precipitation falls per hour. You can see what kind of precipitation this is by comparing it to the icons.

The second graph includes a dark blue line, showing the average wind speed for each three hours interval, and a light blue line showing the maximum wind speed (the gust) within the same interval. The arrows at the top of the graph show the average direction of the wind.

8. How do I navigate between days in the daily forecast?

On the light blue bar immediately under the map, you can swipe left and right to select any of the next seven days. A light blue line shows which day is currently selected.

9. How do I use the Map tab?

The Map tab allows you to navigate using a 2D map to any location of interest. It is useful for getting a feel of the weather conditions in a general area. You can choose to view precipitation (rain, snow, hail) or temperature by selecting the corresponding icon in the top-left. In the top-right you can click the ruler icon to show a color scale.

10. What is the difference between wind speed and wind gusts?

Wind speed is the average over the period of interest (three hours); the gust speed is the speed of the maximum gust during the same period.

11. Can I change the units for temperature/wind speed?

Yes, simply head to the Settings tab and select the unit you want to change.

12. How often is the data in the app refreshed?

Every five minutes.

13. How can I refresh the data?

Simply use the “pull to refresh” gesture: Just scroll down on the screen and release to trigger a refresh. This action prompts the app to retrieve the latest weather information.

14. How accurate is the data in the app?

The accuracy of the data in the Meteomatics Weather App is of utmost importance to us. Our app utilizes advanced algorithms and technology to provide the most reliable weather information available. However, it's important to note that weather forecasting is a complex science, and there are inherent limitations and uncertainties involved. Weather conditions can change rapidly, and localized variations can occur.

15. How can I add or remove a favorite location?

To add a favorite location: In the Search tab you can type text to find a location. When the location you want appears in the list of options, you can use the heart button on the left to add it to your favorites.

To remove a favorite location: In the Search tab, you can simply unselect the heart from the location. Alternatively, at the bottom of the Favorites tab, simply click on the button "Remove from favorites".

16. The place name I’m interested in is shared by several locations. How can I make sure I chose the right one?

Clicking on the location name in the Search tab will take you to the current weather screen for that location. Here you’ll see a map with your location at the center. Zoom out to verify that this is the place you’re looking for.

17. How can I change between my favorite locations?

On the Favorites tab, on the blue banner at the top of the screen, you can see circular dots next to the arrow icon for each location that you’ve added to your favorites. Swipe left or right to switch between them; swiping all the way left will show your current location.

18. How can I change the order of my favorites?

Your favorites appear from left to right at the top of the screen in the order in which you added them — to change the order, remove them from your favorites and add them again in the order you want.

19. Why is the radar forecast only for the next two hours?

Radar is an observation which involves firing beams of radio waves into the air and measuring the reflectivity of the beam along its path. It can only be used to observe the current conditions, and these can only be extrapolated into reliable predictions for a short-range forecast. After two hours, our weather models take over.

20. How can I allow/disable the use of my current location within the app?

On Android devices, open your Settings app and navigate to Location > App permissions. Find the Meteomatics Weather App in your list of apps and select it to view and edit the location settings.
