Dew Point

Post by Mapantz » 02 Feb 2015, 14:53

Are there any plans to add dew points to the web app or even the apps for iOS Android and Windows Phone? I find it very important at this time of year, especially when snow is in the forecast.

Knowing temperature and humidity, this gives you dew point:

I'm interested in a simple dew point indication as well, as:

Difference between temperature and dew point x 400 gives the approximate cloud base in feet, and for airfields that's an important factor.

The dew point can be seen on the iOS app (not sure for android or windows), just tap on the temperature for the outside module and it will show up instead of the "feels like" temperature, along with the maximum and minimum temperatures under the main temperature.

Thanks - that's really useful to know.

This probably isn't the thread to ask, but could a developer, using the API(?), produce a customised view to present the data for airfield operators/light aircraft pilots, which is useful? In other words temp/dewpoint/cloudbase? Plus an accurate mean sea-level pressure (see another thread for discussion of the accuracy of the pressure, which seems doubtful).

MeteowarePlus uses the dew point to calculate the cloud base height in meter above ground level
