What’s the deal with Meteoblue?

Recommended Posts

Just checking the iOS app and comparing datas: 
 

Most recent METAR at LDDU :

LDDU 171900Z 04020KT 340V080 CAVOK 29/12 Q1011 TEMPO 03020G30KT

So it says winds at 20kts gusting at 30kts.

Now I launch my iOS Meteoblue app and it says winds at 24km/h. So the real winds are double to triple what Meteoblue shows. Windy that also uses forecast models shows winds at 18kts with gusts at 24kts so Windy is accurate.

There is also an official alert by the Croatian weather forecasters for high winds. It’s even available in the iOS Weather app through weather.com 

Based on this, Meteoblue is proving to be absolutely inaccurate.

Meteoblue for Dubrovnik shows 15-26mph for now - 30 minutes after you posted (it is now 21:00 UK time) seems to tie in with your METAR data.

Indeed now it does. Weather data was shown as updated at the same time as the METAR but it wasn’t accurate.

Also if I look at the wind map it’s still not accurate...

Wasn’t planning to fly tonight, just checking METAR if that’s ok with you.

If your idea was to start a "Lets talk down on MeteoBlue " thread  you just failed . Just so that you know in real life apps with the same source sometimes are not updated at the same time and there could be sometimes inaccurate info on one side compared to the other that at a later time finally updates to be accurate on both ends .

Even in the Windy app itself, you will see a definite difference in predicted wind speeds on the animated map, depending on whether you use the US GFS forecast model or the European ECMWF model.

It would be fun to fly if the weather was correct.  It's still not been for me either.  It's very delayed when it is accurate.

Good grief Avsim’s MSFs is becoming like an Apple support forum. Even reasonable questions or doubts are met with “shut up and like it”.

I believe that most of the issues with live weather are concentrated in the Americas. Meanwhile Europe seems to be doing quite fine indeed.
