Professional ECMWF weather forecasts worldwide. Starting with temperature and precipitation forecasts up to highly specialized parameters.
For the local forecasts, other models than ECMWF are also provided. If the models match, a realible forecast can be made.
Visualized variants of the ensemble forecasts make it possible to recognize uncertainties.
Degree of coverage of the sky as a whole and in different cloud levels. Computed satellite imagery, visibility, relative humidity, dew point, and zero degree limit.
Air temperature at ground level and 2m above ground, extreme values, sensible and latent heat flux. Water temperature.
Precipitation radar, precipitation totals, accumulated precipitation, extreme values, snow depth, snowfall limit and precipitation probabilities.
Wind means and direction, wind gusts, models for five different pressure levels, extreme weather index.
Water temperature, wave height and -direction. Ice covering of seas and lakes.
Simulated precipitation radar, windshear, thunderstorm potential, atmospheric downwater, K-Index, Fire Weather Index. Probabilities for cyclone, tropical storm, and tropical depression.
Hazes, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter.
Air pressures and pressure changes. Temperature, wind and relative humidity at different altitudes (atmospheric pressures).
Pflotsh ECMWF supplies you with high-quality weather forecasts worldwide. Buying a Pflotsh ECMWF subscription also unlocks to all other Pflotsh apps, if they are installed on the same device.
The various apps are focussed on specific purposes. They have different functionalities, and contain a different selection of weather parameters and models. If all apps were combined to one single app, that one would be rather confusing with too many options getting into the user's way. The individual apps each show exactly what is required for a specific purpose. See all Pflotsh apps at a glance.
The ECMWF aka "Euro model" is the best weather forecast model worldwide being standard for all important decisions.
The App uses the ECMWF with a ca. 9x9 km resolution.
A weather map provides a lot more information than weather data for just one location. E.g: If you want to take a picture of a mountain, it is not important if the sky above you is cloudless, you want to know if the subject is hidden in fog. And anyone who is on the move wants to know how the weather is developing along the way.
Tap the button bar at the top center of the screen. Select the desired parameter (see also select in the Tips and Tricks section). It may take a moment for the data to load.
Significant weather shows those things that may be dangerous or annoying in the forecast – mostly precipitation, but also storms or fog.
In order to see the map. Data is drawn with little transparency, so that it is visible well and without interference with the map. However, in some cases, you won’t see the map well enough. In those cases, just pan.
Either there is no significant weather in your area or there is the unlikely possibility that one of our servers is down. Try an other parameter or check back past events via the archive function (star icon).
Go to the menu and touch "Settings". You can then customize the map type.
They help with the orientation in time (see also Timeline in Tips and Tricks). You can swipe your finger or tap to select a point in time. Or you can set a date by date, even if it is in the past.
For the first four days, the ECMWF calculates its forecasts hourly for most parameters. For a period of up to six days the forecasts are provided in three-hour intervals, then at six hours. For some parameters the forecasts are less frequent.
Please tap on the date display in the center and choose date and time and confirm your choice via check mark. You can also tap the arrows to the left (to the past) or right (to the future).
Shake your phone! Alternatively, select the corresponding item from the menu.
Long press the date display. Alternatively, select the corresponding item from the menu.
To show the prediction for the current location, select the corresponding entry in the menu or press the prediction-icon at the right of the date field. To see the forecast for any location, move the map and then long press on the desired point.
Each line shows a different weather model. So you can compare them and see uncertainties in the forecast. For more information, tap the in the app's forecast view.
Move two fingers to the left or right on the time display at the bottom of the screen. This changes the transparency (see also Transparency) in Tips and Tricks.
You won’t need that, just get all your info by tapping on the screen (see also Information about Colors).
This is how we show an ensemble forecast. In numerical prediction models, a small change in the initial conditions can lead to large deviations from expected results. Therefore, the model is not only fed with measured values, but also with slightly modified data. Thus, several model runs can be compared and extreme deviations can be detected. Each of the dots on the display corresponds to a model run. The two small numbers top left and right correspond to the lowest, resp. the highest value in the ensemble. The values shown below are considered to be the most probable forecast.
It works from iPhone 5 or iPad from iOS 10.0 or higher, Android from version 4.4 (KitKat).
In order to cover the cost for the data and further development of the app there is yearly amount to be paid via subscription. The first month is free and you can cancel the subscription without being charged during the first month of use. Buying a Pflotsh ECMWF subscription also unlocks to all other Pflotsh apps, if they are installed on the same device.
This app is not intended to replace official warnings by the National Weather Services of the countries involved, but it is a perfect supplement if you want to assess the weather situation for yourself.
