FAQ

  1. How can I see the date in the forecast table?

    To see the date on a desktop computer, hover the mouse cursor over the word "today", "tomorrow" or any day of the week. To see the date on the phone or tablet with a touch screen, press your finger on the same word ("today", "tomorrow" or the day of the week).


  2. Why do the links “see on map”, “Units of measurement”, etc. work improperly and what is the reason for the data not getting uploaded to the table "Weather Archive"? How can this be fixed?

    These problems create such browser extensions as "AdBlock", "ABP", and the like. To resolve this problem, you should disable these extensions for our website.


  3. Why are different parts of pages and tables displaced? How can this be fixed?

    This problem was observed when using unlicensed versions of ESET NOD32 Antivirus.
    To resolve this problem, please do the following:
    1) Please install the licensed version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus
    or
    upgrade ESET NOD8 to version 9 and add our website to the exclusions of ESET NOD8: add a line rp5.am* (without the HTTP protocol and slash, but with an asterisk at the end) in the list of addresses excluded from checking.
    2) Clear the browsing history (cached images and files) and then go back to our website.


  4. Where can I see information about the last update time of the forecast?

    You can see information about the last update time of the forecast in the tooltip that appears when you hover the mouse cursor over the question mark at the end of the phrases "6 day weather forecast", "3 weather forecast" or "1 day weather forecast".


  5. What scale is used for division of cloudiness into layers: low, middle and high? Where are the conventional boundaries of the layers? What is the altitude of the layers?

    The morphological classification includes ten main cloud types, which are further divided into species and varieties. Depending on the altitude of cloud base, three layers of clouds are distinguished: high, middle and low. A separate group includes clouds with vertical development.

  6. Why do the observational data available on the webpage "Weather archive" sometimes differ from the values observed by the user?

    There are a few answers to the question:
    - the time when the user makes his observations may differ from the time of observations at the weather station as all main weather stations make observations at a fixed time;
    - the observation site chosen by the user may differ from the site and height of installation of meteorological instruments placed on specially designed instrument platforms. Measurement of air temperature is made in an instrument shelter at a height of 2 m above the ground;
    - the values of meteorological parameters at the time and site of observation can be influenced by the local terrain features, as well as significant obstacles (big houses, groups of trees) around the site of observation at a distance closer than 100 meters.
