Never before has it been easier to see how the weather is like right now either in your home town, in the city where your grandparents’ plane takes off from, or on your sailing routes along the coast. On Asiaq’s redesigned weather homepage, weather.asiaq.gl, you can follow current weather observations for more than 40 cities, settlements and offshore locations. You can find temperature, wind conditions, pressure, humidity, visibility, and much more at present and back in time. It is important for the safety at sea and on land to have a comprehensive, clear, and user friendly page for finding relevant and updated information about the weather. Now it is easy to choose the right clothing before leaving home. Furthermore, the observations on the page are texted and ready for reading aloud for the benefit of visually impaired people.

Arctic Winter Games will be needing weather observations

The timing for the launch is not coincidental. ”With Arctic Winter Games just around the corner, there is great interest from both organizers and spectators to have the opportunity to see how the weather will be at the individual venues under the AWG” – says project manager Majbritt Westring Sørensen, and continues: ”Therefore we have worked extra hard to complete the weather page so people can see the current weather in the centre of Nuuk, at the airport, on top of the alpine skiing lift, and in Qinngorput.”. ”This type of events are highly dependent on the weather situation – and our planning and replanning are deeply dependent on us being able to observe the weather and how it evolves. Therefore climate stations are an important element when we are preparing ourselves for any possible situations” says Arnakkuluk Jo Kleist, Assistant to General Manager for AWG.<\p>

More and faster

The updated weather page replaces the familiar Asiaq weather homepage (same URL) which showed data for 19 different locations. Now this number has been increased to 42, and with a time delay of only 17 minutes, the weather cannot be more current. You can already now go to weather.asiaq.gl and see what the weather is like right where YOU are..
