Do you doubt the weather forecast of the usual applications? I present to you Météociel. This application would be used by farmers, it is teeming with data to make your own forecasts.

When I spoke to my colleague Baptiste about it, he mentioned an old website dedicated to weather: Météociel. The myth of this site is that it is used by farmers to know the precise weather forecasts. The accuracy of the forecasts comes from the way the service uses raw data from Météo France.

It’s not pretty, but it’s effective.

I rushed to use the website, unfortunately it feels like I went back 15 years. It is clear that the data was presented simply with details that I was not used to consulting on traditional applications. Some time later, I discovered the existence of the homonymous application.

The latter allows you to check the weather in the vast majority of cities in France, to be alerted to the temperature, pressure, humidity level, amount of rain expected… but also the wind, storms, as well as numerous satellite images.

Digging deeper, we find many weather models that allow you to establish your own forecasts: GFS Europe and France, GEFS, ECMWF/CEP, UKMO, NOGAPS, COAMPS, GME/DWD, monthly and daily CFS, JMA, GEM, BOM ACCESS, WRF, CPTEC, CMA, NCMRWF, NAVGEM, NASA-GEOS… this free application is teeming with data. For example, you can use the aerosol forecast map such as birch, grass or olive pollen which are often allergy triggers.

The interface could do with a revamp, as could the website, but the qualities of this application make it a real alternative to the most popular weather applications.
