I know some people who are looking forward to the end of the news of the channel that is broadcasting on TV to see the weather information. Some, not satisfied with what they are told, change the channel to see what they are told on another channel.
These people have one or more apps installed on their mobile device to see that information live, whenever they want, just by pressing one or two buttons on the touch screen of the phone or tablet . If you live or are in Galicia, it is best to turn to MeteoGalicia . But it is not the only tool designed for this purpose.
Among the large number of applications that exist in this field, there is one that many consider to be the most efficient. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but there’s something that sets it apart from the rest, it’s an application that offers complete weather information fourteen days in advance. We refer to El Tiempo 14 days . It shows data from more than twenty thousand locations in Spain and two hundred thousand from around the world. Includes information for ski resorts and is free for phones and tablets .
The forecast for the current day and the next is displayed with full information for each hour. On the other days of the week, the forecast is every three hours. For the following week a general prediction is made. I still think that long-term predictions have a high margin of error, but hey, there they are.
Outstanding meteorological variables
It is a very easy-to-use application that, among the languages it supports, includes Spanish. Among the meteorological variables it offers, the following stand out:
- prediction symbol.
- Daily maximum and minimum temperatures, as well as current temperature and wind chill hour by hour.
- Wind speed and direction, including maximum gusts.
- Expected rain.
- Snow cover.
The program also offers other interesting values, such as sunrise and sunset, or the active moon phase. It also shows animated maps and meteorological risks. It is possible to add a widget directly on the mobile screen that shows the prediction of the city in which one lives, for a period of 5 days.
access and download
The application works on the most popular mobile devices. There are versions for Android, iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Windows Phone. Each one can be downloaded after accessing tiempo.com and selecting the appropriate one at the bottom of the page. They can also be downloaded directly from the mobile device by searching for El Tiempo 14 days .
