It is very useful to know in advance what the weather will be like. You can take this into account if you want to go somewhere. Also, if you want to go for a walk or pick out the right clothes for the day, it is useful to know how warm it is going to be and if it is going to rain.
Apps to check the weather on
There are several apps you can use to check the weather. If you want to know the weather for the next 14 days, it is very useful to keep an eye on an app that keeps track of the weather. This way you will know when it is going to rain and when it is going to be dry.
An app is one of the most accurate ways to know when it's going to rain and when it's not. This is because an app is often updated to ensure that you can know the weather as precisely as possible. This is very convenient, because this way you won't be in danger of encountering a downpour unexpectedly.
A 14-day weather forecast is never completely accurate. This is because you can not predict the future with the weather. The weather is measured by means of air pressure, wind force, wind direction and humidity.
This is all measured by certain devices. These devices together are called a weather station. A weather station often works together with a satellite. This makes pictures of the Earth from space to determine the position of clouds.
A weather station is always in a certain place. Sometimes things like a localized shower occur. This is a tricky thing that can happen. The moment this does not take place where the weather station is, it can deviate from what it should be. This is why a weather station is never completely accurate about when it will rain and when it will not. However, a weather station is usually right.
In the Netherlands there are a number of weather stations placed by the KNMI. However, there are not that many of them. This means that the weather forecasts are not equally accurate for every place. Therefore it is best to trust a weather forecast of a few hours or a day in advance. The other weather forecasts may vary.
Also the exact temperature on a day can not be determined. That is why a weather station often gives a maximum and a minimum temperature. This ensures that you always have an idea of how many degrees it will be that day.
It can also happen that a shower that was planned by the weather station comes on a day before or a day after. The predictions are often as good as correct. Especially with big showers and storms, the weather forecasts are often right.
It is often not possible to have an accurate prediction for the weather. However, it is possible to measure the temperature yourself. By hanging a thermometer outside you can make sure that you have a clear picture of how warm it is. From this you can also make a prediction of how warm it will be. This is also a very good way to make sure that you know what to wear for the day. However, this is often not necessary, because the prediction of a weather station is often accurate enough to stick to it.
