World Meteorological Day
March 23rd, 2009


Weather App

Today is World Meteorological Day. As is indicated on their web site the theme is “Weather, climate and the air we breathe”.

I personally have been more preoccupied with the weather of late due to factors such as the flooding rains that occurred here in August 1998 and the record making 44 degrees Celsius (111 degrees Fahrenheit) we experienced on New Years Day several years back. The weather has been a little erratic with some local records well and truly broken with extremes of heat and rain.

I have been trying out several weather apps on the iPhone. The phone came with a Weather app, displayed above. I have added a few others over time including AccuWeather, OzWeather and BOMRadar. I actually feel this is overkill and I will need to cull a couple when I have settled for the most useful of the apps. I will probably stick with Weather and OzWeather.

The curious thing is that not all the apps are consistent with their temperature and predictions.
