In response to the country’s urgent need for superior weather technology and sustainable disaster preparedness systems WeatherPhilippines launches its new and improved weatherph.org. The revamped website is supported by its new technology supplier Meteologix AG, an international weather information provider based in Switzerland. Led by Jorg Kachelmann, Meteologix seeks to introduce innovative weather tools and systems.
Here are five reasons why you should check out the website now:
We streamlined and color-coded the interface and placed all the essential items in one go. You can also personalize your profile when you subscribe and log on to the website.
Have you seen the awesome weather maps? You’ll feel like a pro meteorologist as you view the satellite images and model cards,which allow you to check the forecast for a variety of parameters like temperature, wind, and precipitation using various global models.
3. Learn how to read basic weather information using our #WeatherWiserKaNaBa video tutorial.
The website serves as a weather knowledge hub for everyone, including local government units and private companies. You can also encourage your children to be #WeatherWiser. Watch out for our #WeatherWizards cartoons designed in partnership with Pilmico and will be shown in all public schools.
4. Chat with the WeatherPhilippines team in our online community.
Get firsthand information from our resident meteorologists. In times of severe weather disturbances, the website aims to facilitate the exchange of information between weather experts, on-ground implementers, and decision makers.
5. Download the mobile app from the website.
The WeatherPhilippines mobile app is free for both Android and Apple devices. It offers accurate weather forecasts allowing you to make the most out of localized weather data that matters to you and your loved ones. In 2017, the app will introduce a push notification feature that prepares you for critical weather conditions that may occur in your locality.
The old weather.com.ph will be retired on December 31. We encourage all our users and stakeholders to use weatherph.org. WeatherPhilippines provides Filipinos with a premier weather sensing and forecasting system made possible by technology, inclusive partnerships, and engagement.
