METEO FRANCE - HOW DO I GET WEATHER FORECAST FOR SOUTH FRANCE (HYERES)

METEO FRANCE - HOW DO I GET WEATHER FORECAST FOR SOUTH FRANCE (HYERES)

Post by GM » Wed, 11 Nov 1998 04:00:00


Hi to everybody,
I would like to get a reliable address for reading the weather forecast of
METEO FRANCE on the Internet, updated like the ones you get in France on the
MINITEL or the telephone 083665....

I live in Genova (Italy) and I often go windsurfing to Hyeres, at the Almanarre
beach, but there is no way to call the meteo France service on the phone from
Italy.

Anybody can help?

Ciao.

Gerry

 
 
 

METEO FRANCE - HOW DO I GET WEATHER FORECAST FOR SOUTH FRANCE (HYERES)

Gerry,

Have a look at:
http://www-imk.physik.uni-karlsruhe.de/~gmueller/metbest.html.
There's a complete set of forecasts for Europe of major weather laboratories in the
world.

In the middle of the page, there's a section (in green) called "Analyse- und
Prognosekarten der Vorhersagemodelle". For 12, 24, 36, 48, 60 and 72h wind
forecasts for Central Europe, click on the last line of the table EUROPA ("10m Wind
(M-eur.)").

Arrows show direction and wind force in knots: little tick=5 kt,  long tick=10, one
long + one little = 15kt, etc. You can find a complete description of symbols in
"Beschreibung" on top of page, but that's in German.

BTW, on the bottom of the page, there's a site (LILAM) giving wind forecast for
your region.

Hope that helps. Bon vent!

Ciao

Claudio
