Meteo·Mobile User Accounts

Meteo·Mobile uses cookies (kept at your PC or smartphone) to keep user information. We think that’s the easiest for our users.

When a users visits Meteo·Mobile, we request these cookies (where your settings are) to act accordingly (know your favorite airports and other settings).
But this method has one drawback. When(If) you ever delete your cookies, we no longer know who you are, and then:

  • Alerts that you may have configured become uneditable by you on that PC.
  • We cannot query past history to calculate which airports you requested the most…

Now, if you registered your e-mail address, we can merge all of that information in your current user.

To do that, all you need to do is:

  1. Make sure you have your (right) email address configured at each PC from which you visit Meteo·Mobile (Set your preferences)
  2. One you have done that, you’ll be shown our welcome page with a summary of your registration information.
  3. If we find a previous registration linked to your e-mail address, this page will offer the chance to merge those accounts.
  4. To check that all of those accounts belong to you, the merge process relies on your e-mail. So if you decide to merge the accounts you will be sent an email with more instructions.
    Please be patient to receive your email, if you run the merge process more than once, you’ll get more than one mail, and won’t know which one is the right one.
  5. From each PC (or smartphone) that you use, access that same email and click on the link sent to you.
  6. Voilà! You’re done.

After this short process, your alerts and favorites will be the same in each PC from which you clicked on the linke sent to you through the email.

Let us know if you run into any problem (you and comment on this post, or send us an email to: meteomobile <at> aviador.es )

And… keep visiting!

QNH Difference Alerts

As per Xavi J. Request, I’ve added a new Alert type: QNH Difference Alerts.

What is a QNH Difference Alert?

According to Xavi J. -an experienced glider pilot- when the difference in QNH from two airfields is higher than a particular threshold, they have mountain wave at their local airfield. This could be explained by the fact that winds tend to go from higher pressure areas to lower pressure areas. And in Xavi’s particular case, when the wind blows strongly from the North and there is marked stability, they get the valued mountain wave at La Cerdanya (LECD).
I am not sure whether lots of people will be able to benefit from this kind of alert. But, who knows? You will find out, won’t you? And then, please let me know.

How do I configure the QNH Alert?

Very easy, just navigate to the appropriate Your Preferences menu and input the airport ICAO code for both stations. Then, input the QNH difference threshold (in HPa, please).

When the QNH at the second airport is higher than that of the first airport by the amount you have just cofigured, you’ll get an alert in your email (well, of course you need to Register first, if you hadn’t before)

By the way, La Cerdanya -in the Spanish Pyrenees- is a gorgeous place for mountain soaring (they get thermal, slope and wave soaring).
At the same aerodrome, you can eat at Urvati Sidrería where Eva and Urtus will make you feel at home. And last but not least, you can get your PADI degree for high altitude scuba diving at SCUBA 0.76
