Announcing Extra Weather with Tides, Snow Conditions, Avalanche Risk, Water & Air Temperature

We've added the ability to customize and switch on-off weather adding Tides, Snow Conditions, Avalanche Risk, Water Temperature, and Air Temperature to our existing Conditions, Visibility, Wind, Sea State, Sea Swell, and Cloud Base weather reporting options. Take a read and watch the video below to see how it works.



Video Overview

Watch this 45 second YouTube video for the quickest overview of how this works, then scroll down to read the details. You'll find all these options in [Team Settings] which you need to be the Account Owner to access.


Customizable Weather

You can now select the exact elements of weather that you want to record, or simply switch-off the weather module entirely - which may be of benefit to indoor response teams, or where weather has no significant impact.


Tide

For each day of your incident, we'll now add a tide form letting you record High Water & Low Water times twice a day. To add or remove days from the tide just extend or reduce the dates of your incident. You can record the tide in either metric (m) or imperial (ft) which will be determined based on your main measurements setting.



Snow Conditions

You can now select from any of the following Snow Conditions on the mountain 'Powder', 'Packed Powder', 'Hard Pack', 'Loose Granular', 'Frozen Granular', 'Wet Packed Snow', 'Wet Granular', 'Wet Snow', 'Windblown Snow', 'Variable Conditions', 'Bare or Thin', 'Corn', 'Icy'.



Avalanche Risk

We've done our best to work a system that is compatible to both North American & European measurements. The following avalanche risk options are available, 'Low', 'Moderate / Limited', 'Considerable / Medium', 'High', 'Extreme / Very High'.



Air Temperature

Air temperature units recorded depending on your metric or imperial setting at team level. Either in Celsius or Fahrenheit options are available. Leave it blank if you've no measurement.



Water Temperature

Water temperature units recorded depending on your metric or imperial setting at team level. Either in Celsius or Fahrenheit options are available. Leave it blank if you've no measurement.



We're hoping to enable automatic retrieval and form-fill with your local weather conditions as an optional extra in the near future. 

*Note: PDF Printed Reports & Analytics haven't been updated yet as we're working on adding all the new content to them in a single future release.
