WeatherFix Global is now available on the App Store. This replaces WeatherFix v1.7.
WeatherFix Global includes global weather forecasts covering the entire planet using the same gridded forecast engine we use for US forecasts. The only difference is that in certain parts of the world, due to forecast data availability and other factors, the geospatial accuracy of the forecasts will be from between 1 sq. km and up to 20 sq. km, versus 1 sq. km across the USA. Most of Europe, for example, should be on 1 sq. km grid.
Also, there is currently no radar available outside of the US and parts of southern Canada. Actually, there are radar feeds, available, it’s just quite expensive to use and the integration for the various available feeds is not necessarily uniform. We are working on a solution for this and hope to have something available later this spring or early summer. So please stay tuned….
We expect to add an enhanced forecast in the near future, covering the immediate 6 hour time period. This enhance immediate-term forecast uses greater observed weather data and various satellite feeds to better predict near-term forecasts. We are pretty sure this will be a running addition to the WeatherFix service, and will be “turned on” in the “backend” servers that support WeatherFix, and not in the app Â itself. Thus, you probably won’t need to download an updated version of the app. At least that’s the plan.
We have posted this version on the App Store as an entirely new app due to the inclusion of the global forecast capability and to have the app placed at the top of the “new releases” in the App Store (albeit temporarily), which we hope facilitates greater visibility, and therefore more downloads, of the app by the iPhone/iPod touch community of users.
