Professional ECMWF weather forecasts, worldwide.
Visualized variants of the ensemble forecasts make it possible to recognize uncertainties.
More than eighty parameters are provided. The parameter selection is clearly arranged.
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.
The various apps are focussed on specific purposes. They have slightly different functions, but mostly different contents. If all apps were combined to one single app, that one would be rather confusing with too many options getting into the users 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.
Each of this apps is specialized to a certain topic and provides data for specific use cases
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. The leftmost dot represents the current date, the dot on the right side matches the last time of the prediction (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.
The ECMWF calculates its forecasts for most paramters in a 3 hourly resolution for a week, the 3 following days include forecasts every 6 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.
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. We are confident that this will not happen since Pflotsh ECMWF is one of a kind.
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.
