    New "Observation vs. Forecast" feature within weather stations

    Want to figure out which forecast model is the best for a given location? Not a problem anymore with our new feature: Observation vs. forecast!

    Easy to use map overlays with a graph displaying observed data from 30.000+ weather stations that we monitor, compared with forecast from all the models that we visualize: ECMWF, GFS, NEMS, ICON-EU, AROME, NAM.

    Where do you find it? Just open your favourite weather station and there you are!

    But not only that. Now you can even:

    • Store any weather station as your favourite by clicking on symbol "♥︎".
    • Search any weather station by keyword. Try "11518" for wmo station in Prague.

    We believe that this new feature will help you make your weather-related decisions even better than before. Enjoy and let us know how you like this new feature!

    New AROME forecast model is implemented

    ... as you have voted here.

    AROME has a high resolution of 1.25km and 2.5km. It covers mainly France. Forecasts are up to 44 hours (approx. 2 days). This model has been developed by Météo France and is freely accessible. AROME will be appreciated by those who spend a lot of time in Alps!

    Both on the map and in the forecast detail:

    So-called "Magnetic declination" in the Airport detail (Runways, info)

    Magnetic declination, or magnetic variation, is the angle on the horizontal plane between magnetic north (the direction the north end of a magnetized compass needle points, corresponding to the direction of the Earth's magnetic field lines) and true north (the direction along a meridian towards the geographic North Pole). This angle varies depending on position on the Earth's surface and changes over time. Source: Wikipedia.
