Highlights

  • Thank you for the most fantastic weather website!! I have always been interested in weather forecasts/predictions and especially rain forecasts, rain is precious in South Africa. I have visited probably most of the listed weather websites on the internet and have not found another to match your site. I visit your website daily for a variety of places in SA. The predictions are so often amazingly correct and having told friends of the accuracy of the predictions now have friends phoning to check the predicted weather for the next couple of days if they are planning something special. The interactive map when looking for a place in SA is also one of a kind! No other website (that I have seen) offers the opportunity to 'pin point' a position in South Africa, they only list the towns or cities stored in their databases.
    We have had an interest for many years in a game farm that borders and forms part of the Kruger National Park. I have been able to 'pin point' the camp area of the game farm on your interactive map so I can follow the weather predictions/rain forecasts for the farm and not Hoedspruit which is the closest town but is ±65km away. The 'new' weather map is fantastic, thank you. So thank you again, just love the meteoblue website!!  Kind Regards, Fiona Reynolds, 06.01.2017.
  • Simply the best. And this comes from someone sailing daily in the Aegean Sea. Thank you. iossif, 03.07.2016.
  • Great!!! As paragliding pilot and organizer of many competitions, I can say that this is very good! O. 16.06.2016.
  • Every day I follow your site and I am very satisfied, greeting. N. 03.05.2016.
  • Best weather website that I have found and I have tried many. T. G. Taylor, 14.02.2016.
  • I am not one to randomly send fan mail, but I would be remiss not to acknowledge the level of accuracy meteoblue has hit this summer at Nueltin Lake in Canada's Arctic. I look at a lot of weather sites to get a good reading on what is coming and you have been very accurate. Can you give me some idea where you guys get your information? Thanks a bunch. I plan to put a link to meteoblue from my website so clients can check out the weather. I have your iPhone app on my phone and use it daily. Kindly, Shawn Gurke, Nueltin Fly-In Lodges, Ltd. 02.08.2012.
  • I don't like meteoblue : -)...  with MS at least, I can hope that they are mistaken : o) ... with meteoblue this is never the case! Rain is announced for lunchtime in Sauges … it is punctual, nothing to say. Good day to all, at least ... 05.19.2012 .
  • Congratulations. This is the best weather site that I have found on the Internet so far (after many years of searching). Very accurate for many items. You knock the nail right on the head most of the times. Don't give up. Continue the development of the accuracy of the forecasts. I like your work. Kind regards. Dries. 18.10.2015.

  • I am very satisfied! It's easy to understand and versatile. Lajos H., 20.05.2017.
  • Impressive site and content! I like the ability to create widgets, and miss the ability to choose the meteogram format as a widget. That would be awesome! It seems to be quite heavy on resources to be made, which may be a reason to not having it available. It would nevertheless be awesome :-D . Keep up the excellent work! Best regards. Marc C. 25.03.2017.
  • The website is amazing and the Android app too, but I'm really crazy about these new maps! I love them!!!
    The best, full featured weather forecast service ever! Dario, 2017-02-16
  • Verrrrrrrrrrrrry usefull ! G.G. 21.01.2017.
  • I think 'now', it is very Good for local or country level weather forecast. I am from Pakistan, I am using this site for a long time and now am satisfied for this improvement... U. Arshad. 18.01.2017.
  • Looks great (and a Happy New Year). Ben, 01.01.2017.
  • Fantastic tool. Nothing else compares. Thank you. J.Ross. 29.12.2016.
  • I am Impressed by work, design and art shown in maps. I am providing weather services for the UN department of peace keeping operations in the DRC. I am responsible for issuing Aerodrome forecasts for what are called "Team Sites" (Sake, Walikale, Masisi, Kashebere, Nyabiondo, Pinga Butembo, Beni, Kisangani, Kindu, Mbandaka, Kananga, MbujiMayi...) and rest of the Congo. This is to ensure safe, accurate and cost-effective air operations. I just discovered the site yesterday, December 29, 2016. I have seen them much, much better than those I had known before. Expert and excellent modern technology. It will definitely make my work easier and accurate. However, I am still busy studying the maps, accuracy and effectiveness of all the models being run and whose products are provided to users. In fact, I would rather had many more stations were provided for Congo D R, being the largest country in Central Africa but also a conflict zone. Joseph Jameson Madimbo, 30.12.2016.
  • Hello, I would like to tell to your team that I love your website. Very pleasant and helpful. This one will be placed in my favorites for one of my future trips.  Have a nice day. Richard, 25.12.2016.

  • Hi all, thanks for an excellent, widespread, detail, comprehensive, live(almost live), mostly accurate weather report software. It is helpful for agro, wind power, research etc ... I want to suggest one thing -- The opacity of overlay layer of data over the map should be adjustable manually (by user) , arrow lines should be slim enough and dark. I think it is one of the best weather forecast sites on the internet. Keep up the good work. Leonard, 09.11.2016.

  • Dear meteoblue. Me and two of my friends are working with our final essay of this semester and our time in high school. Our project is mainly about astronomy with details surrounding Jupiter and it's moons. Therefore we followed the website for information on the daily seeing index... We would also like to thank you while we're still at it for being such an informative website with loads of lovely perks. Thanks in advance, Marcus Neidert, Albert Annis, Joel Tovstedt. 09.04.2015.

  • I really enjoyed your mini game Happy Easter to you all, and keep on doing what you’re doing, I love meteoblue! Greetings from Serbia! Milan, 01.04.2015
  • your site is extremely helpful particularly for looking ahead 14 days. we have good meterological services in this country but your forward (14 day)forecast cannot be equaled and I accept with gratitude and understanding the inaccuracies that are bound to occur in long range forecasting. Aaron Cohen, 27.03.2015
  • Hi there Meteoblue team. I Love your site! the most accurate I've seen and now almost the only one I use. Daniel, 23.03.2015
  • Hi. I love your website and some of the displays are great. I use it for microlight flying.  The displays that show cloud height are particularly informative in several ways. The Radar and cloud cover maps are great to check incoming weather. John Boardman, 12.03.2015
  • Your site is very good, love it. 02.02.2015 Roman Zitny, Slovakia
  • I really like using meteoblue , because it is very helpful in the work. 27.01.2015, Asrul Saparuddin, Indonesia.
  • Thank you very much for your extremely promp and accurate information. You are professionals bar none. Impressed and thank you. Tony Pilato, 16.01.2015
  • I think your site is great and far more accurate than all the other forecasts I follow. One query, what does brown shading on the precipitation forecast on the daily summary mean? Thanks. 10.01.2015. [Reply: The brown shading for the precipitation forecast appears on the front page, in the daily summary, when expected  precipitation amounts exceed 20 mm/day].
  • Thank you very much for your site - wonderful. Mahmoud, 09.01.2015.
  • Dear meteoblue-Team, I love the multimodel meteogram functionality! Would it be possible to add the wind direction for each model as well? Thanks and keep up the good work, Daniel. 22.12.2014.
  • I love this site.  Accurate weather. 18.12.2014
  • Your website presents information in a very good way. Keep up the good work. Attilio Di Marco, 16.12.2014
  • Hello meteoblue-Team, just recently I stumbled over your weather site and I have to say: it's the best that I've ever visited! It's my default one now ...- especially because it focuses heavily on forecasting and sophisticated visualization. Great! I have some suggestions/comments for you:
    - in the meteograms, it's nice (and new for me) to see the forecast distribution of the clouds. However, it would be more useful for the end user to also show the amount of sun expected (e.g. as yellow bars attached to -i.e. hanging from- the top of the cloud cover figure - showing the hourly duration of sunshine). That'd be great!
    - the All-in-One meteogram shows the wrong symbols at night (with the sun, if no complete overcast); that cannot be right ;-) The 5-day meteogram shows more realistic symbols (the moon);
    - in the 7-day weather, could you also manage to include the UV-index? This would make it complete (for me)....
    I very much like the 'rainSPOT' diagrams! They can basically replace the often hard to control precipitation radar. Nice idea! Is there a way to see them hourly? There are much more features on the site that I haven't explored yet. It's like a playground ;-). Thanks again for this very pretty weather site! I would also welcome an Android app (although the mobile site works Okay for me). Cheers, M. Herrmann, 05.12.2014.
  • It is excellent, I must say. Thank you very much. Nguyen Hoai, 17.10.2014
  • Fantastic! And thank you for continuing to provide such reliable forecasts! Last winter was a great one for Meteoblue - it was accurate throughout a very unusual winter... Last winter I kept looking at the maps and thinking "that can't be right..." and then I'd see the webcams of Madesimo and Madonna di Campiglio buried under a metre of fresh snow. Sean Newsom, welove2ski, 09.09.2014.
  • Very good site for flying on ultra light (paramotor). Thank you very much. Alain Fievez. 27.08.2014.
  • First, thanks for the great forecasting site and all your efforts to improve it. I use it a lot. I would find it very useful to have an indication of air pressure included in the 7-day weather graphics, the 'Meteogram'. It looks as though it could be included easily in the cloud and precipitation picture as a black line, without causing any confusion. Thanks again and keep up the good work. Ed, Athens, 22.08.2014
  • In general, I like the format and accuracy; you were 7 minutes wrong on the start of the thunderstorm last night which I consider incredible! Just one question: what is the kilometre size of the square showing the Local short-term precipitation forecast? PS: You are far more accurate than the competition. David (France), 19.08.2014
  • I'm using meteoblue.com for several years for operative planning of various trips through Europe - and I'm very satisfied with your forecasts and services!
    Best regards, Martin Mikusiak, 17.08.2014.
  • Keep up the good work – I have a pilot’s license and I use the website to help plan when to fly a few days in advance. Kind regards, David W. 16.08.2014.
  • Always great and accurate forecast! Congratulation! Gianpaolo Pillinini, 09.08.2014.
  • Well done on the updated site. Everything I need is there! Very clear and simple to interpret as well. MG, 08.08.2014.
  • Just viewing meteoblue on PC. Love the new design!...I have been using meteoblue for several years now. Especially when traveling abroad or making plans for travelling ;-). A. Sterk, 05.08.2014.
  • Good morning, we have been living for four years in Tennessee (USA) and are daily user of meteoblue (and big fans). Unfortunately, we are not so happy with the new view. We lack the detail view for forecasting the next 5 days.  Proper rain is rather sparse with us in summer and we have 'learned', i.e.,  that a real rain chance only applies here from about 80% [probability upwards]. The simplified weather icons give little information and throughout the detail view you could quickly the find interesting key points of the day without having to click-to-day. So what is still available or planned again? Tom Moore, 03.08.2014. [Editor: Detail view is back since 04.08.2014].
  • Certainly the new layout is nice and clean, but a bit slower to use. Btw. the insolation curves are nice to compare with the wrf forecast for the French site i glide at, and also with the rasp gliding forecast for the UK. For a free site meteoblue is extremely nice, so these are small beefs, and i have already made bookmarks on my Nokia home screen to work round those new menus! Steve, 03.08.2014. [Editor: concerns will be solved next week]
  • Hello, The weather information you provide is excellent and very useful. However, I do not find any information regarding the humidity. Any way to have it indicated? Thanks and regards. JJ Gagnebin. 02.08.2014. [Editor: The relative humidity can be found : 1. on our main page, if you click on "More details / hourly data​​" (under the rainSPOT);  2. in the Meteogram AIR . 3. on the map.]
  • Love the fresh new look website. Am very impressed with the mobile version, especially as I seem to spend ever more time on my iPhone. Jim, UK, 01.08.2014.
  • I like the new meteoblue, especially the "see all in one go" view. ufly4fun, 01.08.2014.
  • Really like the new site. Just one thing would improve it: Change the colour of the current day highlight to make it a little lighter than it is. When your first arrive on the page, the highlight from the 'forecast' link on the left merges with that first day's colour which makes the overall effect less clean. Jon Cage 31.07.2014.
  • I am using Meteoblue for at least 15 years. You improved my everyday life and that of my family. We use your forecast when going to the mountain, to adapt the swimming pool heating, to check before any outdoor/indoor and many other decision. It was for me the main reason to switch to the smart-phone. Your site is a rare exception of the service which does not downgrades with new features. Usually I do not welcome changes, but with meteoblue there is never problem. So just 2 remarks. 1. The radar map does not appears on my Firefox 31.0 (Ubuntu 12.04), 2. It seems that for some time you do not display any more the time-stamp of the last update which is a valuable information. Did I miss the new location ? Thank you Andre, 30.07.2014. [Editor's note: ...Radar: It should work now ... The time-stamp of the last update is on the main page, below the text. Click on "Show details / hourly data". If you allow cookies from www.meteoblue.com, then the setting will remain.]
  • I really like your new design! I am using your website few times a day and I appreciate very much how simple and organized it is. And thank you for memorizing my "last visited", it is helpful as I am always looking for the same locations. Thank you for the good job! :) Diana, 31.07.2014
  • I love the new design, it feels refreshed, more friendly, light colors just amaze me. I'm using this site for a long time, because most of the cases are reliable. I also like favorites because I can quickly access, check the weather around the world. I know, that it will be little chance to add it in the future, but if somehow could extend the favorites (mean we could add a little more location), I think most of us (users), will be quite pleased. I remember when I saw, that you could add 50 locations, I said it's a lot, but when you can add almost any location( including places where weather station doesn't exist) you can fill up pretty quickly. You guys doing a tremendous job, keep up the good work. Have a nice day. Sincerely, A happy user, Lehel, 30.07.2014.
  • Hi all, I truly believe that the design overhaul was long due and that the refreshing of the site css makes it more up to date. However, the "last visited" dropdown links should remain accessible with one click instead of two. It was really nice to be able to switch very quickly between several weekend options, and this feature has become more of a hassle. Warmest regards, Benjamin. 30.07.2014. [We will add this function again soon - thanks for writing!].
  • Thanks a lot for very good forecasting! Andrew Kolotenko, 27.07.2014.
  • I find this site really useful. So far it has proved to be the most reliable for our area of all the sites that I monitor. Peter Reece (Western Cape, South Africa), 24.07.2014.
  • Thanks for the invite to sample and give feedback to your new web site. I have only recently started using meteoblue as I'm fed up with the poor forecastinggiven by the French Meteo web site (I live in France). If I may make a small request though, as a retired pilot, I like to see a surface pressure chart (forecast and actual) as well as rainfall radar, satellite imagery, wind velocity, etc. Armed with this information, I am able to see what is developing in the Atlantic. Would it be possible to add this type of chart to the beta version. Thanks for a great service. Bob Samme, 19.07.2014. [Maps are available for surface pressure as well as rainfall radar, satellite imagery, wind velocity, the new version should make them easier to find].
  • Compliments, according to me you beat [a major local provider in Italy] by far!! A. Filippa, 07.07.2014. 
  • Hello, My wife and I are big fans of meteoblue. We have been wondering why there is both green and blue in the little boxes that show intensity and distribution of precipitation... Richard Halpern, Virginia, US, 23.06.2014. [answer: see rainSPOT]
  • I felt the need to tell you that lately I am quite happy with your forecast. I was mostly following yr.no, but I am converting to Meteoblue fan. Of course, I will keep reading data from NOAA , but for a quick check, it looks nothing beats Meteoblue. I am paraglider pilot and wind forecast is quite important for me. My "field observations" in the last period say that you get it right in the most cases. Very important when you have to travel 100km to the nearest take off. Keep the good work :) - Marko Stamenovic (via Facebook), 18.06.2014
  • I really, really appreciate this feature [Red: radarSPOT] -it allows me to really have an idea what’s going to be happening in our locality in the next hour or so, more precisely than any “forecasts”. I assume this is because the “forecasts” require more human intervention. We use this several times per day to make decisions on what we are going to do-one could call them “banal” decisions, but it’s the kind of thing that makes life easier. Congratulations on your site. 13.05.2014.
  • Thanks! For providing me and my colleagues with good and precise weather forecasts! And for keeping your webpage very professional and detailed. 24.04.2014.
  • I read your meteogram for paraglider purpose and I appreciate your work a lot, so precious especially for wind and cumulus clouds prediction: thank you very much! Riccardo, 12.02.2014
  • new myMap: I just wanted to thank meteoblue for continuous additions: we were awaiting the precipitation maps for long time :D. Best for meteoblue. Raed Sawalha, 22.11.2013.
  • Dear Sirs, since 3am till 3.30pm is has been cloudy in Malacky [Slovakia]– no rain! All prominent and important meteorologists and their weather stations were simply wrong!!! Only you predicted zero rainfall (precipitation) and you were right! Let me express my compliment to your professional work – you are the best! Bajo Miroslav, 20.08.2013.
  • Your web site is excellent, very interesting, and easy to use ...Titou des Garrigues 27.05.2013.
  • The most accurate for my area and also the best presentation. Riccardo Gaboardi, Italia, 17.04.2013.
  • Hi, I am very delighted to say that you are doing a very great job, especially in the weather forecast. I am from Rwanda, a country that is known as "country of 1000 hills". It has many mountains, and when I used your products, it was almost correct. meteoblue predicted 23mm at 1400 in Kigali, and we got 22mm at 1200 in Kigali. So keep it up. Louis Kanobayire, 28.03.2013.
  • Hello. We use your tools, and weather forecasts for more than two years. We are very satisfied. Congratulations to the accuracy and timeliness. In our sport, these reports are vital. Thank you. Dusan Stevovic, adriafly, Montenegro, 12.01.2013.
