YOUR PROFESSIONAL MOUNTAIN WEATHER FORECASTER

adminMount-ajaxWeather4Mountain is a new professional mountain weather service provided by MeteoGib weather consultancy.  The business launched in 2015 by professional Meteorologist, Stephanie Ball.  A Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society (FRMetS), Stephanie is a highly experienced weather forecaster with almost 30 years experience working for the UK Met Office. 
Based in Gibraltar, our aim is to provide users with detailed bespoke and personalised mountain weather forecasts for mountain climbers, walkers and trekkers.  We specialise in mountain forecasts across Europe and may also be able to assist further afield – check out our case study for Patagonia!  Do you run a mountain related business?  If so, we can provide a detailed 5 day mountain forecast for your location (please contact us for an example) whereas for solo climbers or expedition members in more remote areas, we can provide weather support via coded messages to your satellite device (i.e YellowBrick) to help you identify that crucial weather window.   Visit main website

CASE STUDY

yellowbrick-9Spanish 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.

 

ReceivingForecastSample message of a 3 Day + 2 Day Outlook reads:

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.

TESTIMONIAL

 

P1030908_SnapseedFor 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

Richard Hartley …. Owner of Spanish Highs, Sierra Nevada
