The weather app improved

The ever changing Icelandic weather in your smartphone

23.10.2015

Our weather app has been improved. It is now running on the same models as the web forecasts and the meteograms are available again. For the next 48 hours, a forecast for each hour is provided instead of every three hours before.

The app is a convenient way to check the weather forecasts and the current weather condition.

Forecasts and warnings

Weather symbols appear with temperature, precipitation, wind direction and wind speed, but text forecast are also available, as well the meteograms. Please observe that the text forecasts, written by our meteorologists, are more reliable than the automated graphic presentation.

Location is automatically detected if GPS on; otherwise a favourite weather station can be chosen for the home screen. Notifications can be enabled.

Alerts issued by the Met Office are automatic during the day and can be checked anytime. Optionally, a personal weather watch can send notifications when certain criteria are met, e.g. a forecast of temperature below zero at your chosen weather station.

Meteograms

When a station has been chosen, and a detailed weather forecast appears with hourly values, the tab METEO appears top right. Touch that and click "expand image" (bottom screen) for a better view, tilting your smartphone. Below is an example of a meteogram for Reykjavík:

For most stations a meteogram is available, both on the web and in the app.

Current weather conditions

An interactive weather map shows weather observations at any station in the country.

Installation

Get the weather app at Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Type VEDUR or vedur to find the app and install. Select language under Settings (Stillingar), shown in the video below.

Video instructions

A video shows all the features of the weather app for those who want to familiarise themselves with the various screens before the app is installed and taken into use. It shows how the setting of languages can be changed from Icelandic to English.
