Next 180 Days provides a high-level overview of weather for the Next 3 Days, Next 28 Days, and then weather trends for the next six months - a total of 180 Days into the future!
This insightful information will help you prepare for the seasons across your various sites. Next 180 Days is available in the mobile app.
Refer to the below to learn about the different elements that make up the 180 Days screen on the app:
The Today screen summary provides you with information to help you make operational decisions for today.
In the above chart we have the:
- Minimum and maximum temperatures for the day, highlighting extreme temperatures
- In this particular example, the temperature dropped below 3ºC earlier today, and so the temperature reading at the top of the screen changed to blue
The maximum temperature is equal to or above 32ºC
The maximum temperature is equal to or below 3ºC
Total expected precipitation for the day
The chart displays for each hour of the current day (00:00h to 24:00h):
|Temperature observations (solid yellow) and predictions (dotted yellow)
Average wind speed and direction observations (solid grey) and predictions (dotted grey)
Precipitation observations (bright purple) and predictions (grey purple)
|Temperature thresholds; maximum temperature (dotted red), minimum temperature (dotted blue)
Tap once on the chart to show the Tool Tip and find out specific readings at a given time. Double tab to zoom in, then drag the Tool Tip left or right across the chart to see readings at other times.
Below the chart are the Latest Observations from your local weather location. You can edit which observations are displayed here by tapping on the Edit button and reordering the weather conditions. The top nine weather conditions will be displayed.
The Next 14-Day Hourly screen provides a high-level overview of the weather predictions for the next 2 weeks and can be accessed in two different ways.
Via the Today Graph
You can expand the Today graph with the arrow buttons in the top right of the chart , which will make the graph larger and horizontal, and allow you to drag further into predicted conditions, up to 14 days away.
- Wind Speed and Direction
- Amount of expected precipitation
Via Individual Weather Conditions
To display the 14-Day Chart for individual weather conditions, tap on the specific condition tile in the Latest Observations to expand. You can then swipe horizontally to view up to 14 days into the future.
Next Few Days
The Next Few Days screen provides a high level overview of the weather for tomorrow and the following day which includes:
- Range of temperature
- Chance of any precipitation
- Amount of expected precipitation
- Range of average wind speed
To see more detail, tap on the tab or the tab.
Next 28 Days
The Next 28 Days provides a high level overview of the temperature and precipitation for the next 28 days. The top row of each day is the maximum daily temperature and the bottom row is the minimum daily temperature.
The first 14 Days (dates shown with “・”) of the calendar are produced by The Yield's patented forecast model and are updated up to four times a day. The last 14 days of the calendar are generated from The Yield’s Seasonal Forecast Model. This is based on an 18-mile (29 km) grid and is updated once per month.
If the temperature exceeds the temperature thresholds, then it is highlighted in blue for cold and red for hot days. The purple bar on the side of each day indicates the amount of precipitation.
- To view how much rainfall is predicted to accumulate on a given day tap on the button (above image).
- To see the temperatures again tap on the button. (below image).
At the bottom of the calendar, the summary for the 28 Days is displayed - Lowest and highest temperatures, and Total Precipitation.
Below this is the Long Term Averages for the 28 Days. The Long Term Average is based on the gridded ERA-5 dataset and is the average for the 30 year period 1991-2020. The ERA-5 dataset is a gridded dataset is produced by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). Click here to learn more about the ERA-5 dataset.
When you tap on the button, you will see details about how the forecast is made, including the date at which The Yield’s Seasonal Forecast was last updated. For further information on the forecast calculation method refer to: How is the forecast is calculated?
Below the calendar you will see summaries of the current month and the Next 6 Months. Tap on any month to see more information including charts for temperature and precipitation.
The grey bars are the 30 year Long Term Averages while the white bars are the temperature ranges. If the temperature is below the minimum threshold of 3 degrees Celsius then the bar will turn blue for that day, while if the daily maximum temperature is above the maximum threshold of 32 degrees Celsius then the bar will turn red for that day. Below the temperature chart is the summary showing the number of days in the month that are outside the thresholds, and the ranges of the maximum and minimum temperatures.
Below this is the precipitation chart which compares the 30 year average daily rainfall against this seasons forecasted precipitation. The threshold set for rainfall is 10mm and can be seen on the chart as a purple dotted line.
When using the monthly summaries, it’s important to compare the long term average to the predicted values so you can determine if the season is looking drier or wetter than average from a precipitation perspective and comparing the temperature values to the long term average.
Should you see this symbol, it means that the data is not currently available. We suggest that you refresh the page by pulling down on the screen to see if that fixes the issue. If the problem persists, please contact the Support team.
Should you see this symbol, it means that the data is available but delayed and therefore not accurate. Please use caution when making operational decisions based on delayed data.
