Yachting Weather“ and „Yachting Weather EXPERIENCE“
“Yachting Weather” is the cost-free and user friendly weather App for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad to receive precise sea weather predictions for the next 3 days (2 days on iPad) - or with an upgrade to “Yachting Weather EXPERIENCE”- for the next five days.
You receive all marine weather predictions according to your current GEO location or any other sea area worldwide determined by GPS, a single click on the map tool or by manual input.
Whether you are sailing, motor yachting or doing other water sport activities, you can configure “Yachting Weather” exactly to your needs with numerous options.
The forecasts for the next three days come in six hour intervals (for five days in three hour intervals with “Yachting Weather EXPERIENCE”) and are available worldwide.
Due to the high spatial resolution of 0,15° to 0,25° (which is comparable to approx 12x12 sea miles). Conventional GFS weather models work with a resolution of 0,5° to 1° and assume equal weather conditions for a sea area of 60 x 60 nautical miles. On open sea or nearby the coastline a high resolution forecast for wind and waves can be advantageous. Changing winds, gusts or rough sea within short distances could be missed by large scale forecast models.
Besides a higher spatial resolution WEATHER365 weather models integrate topographical, geographical and vegetal characteristics - especially of the coastal areas - which have influence on weather trends and weather evolution. Even bathymetry data are included because of their impact on wave height and length.
You receive exact predictions for your designated position.
All weather data are based on optimized WRF and Wave Watch III weather models and calculated and updated four times a day by WEATHER365.
With an Upgrade to “Yachting Weather EXPERIENCE” you get the predictions of the professionals:
