What detailed weather services do you require and for which area? What format and how often – ask about our special coded forecasts? How do you want them delivering?
We provide you with access to our specialist Meteorological expertise and deliver your forecast – even in the most remote of locations.
Sent to either your Mobile, Email, Sat Phone, Yellowbrick, Spot or Delorme device. We can help you make informed decisions to help ensure your safety.
Unlike most other automated services, this is a bespoke personalised forecast catered to your own requirements by a professional weather forecaster!
Spanish Highs Mountain Guides run expeditions to the Patagonian Icecap. No mobile signal exists in that area so they are heavily reliant on satellite communications. They use a Yellowbrick Tracker to send and receive messages.
The weather in Patagonia is notoriously poor and so the forecasting is essential to ensure safe and efficient progress on the icecap. They require a twice daily weather forecast for the forthcoming 3 days. The weather message contains only wind speed, wind gust, precipitation and temperatures
In 2014 they asked MeteoGib to provide their Weather4Mountain Service, and to send the weather messages using their own in-built coding system.
26-0024-Wind G>40 easing S1cm
The code gives the first 3 Days in two 6 hourly daylight periods, including average wind, gust and main wind direction, followed by precipitation either rain or snow with the confidence level as a percentage, then Maximum Temperature and Windchill.

For the past year when we have ventured into the Sierra Nevada, especially during the winter, we have been given invaluable and up to date weather information from Stephanie Ball. This timely and accurate weather data has allowed us to plan our days more effectively and also, more importantly, enabled us to retreat well in advance of any bad weather coming in. A tremendous help for mountain guides
