About website

The website has been designed and supported by Raspisaniye Pogodi Ltd., St. Petersburg, Russia, since 2004. The company has the license for activity in hydrometeorology and in adjacent fields.

The website provides six-day weather forecasts and information on the actual weather, observed at ground stations.

Forecasts for all 6 days are updated on the site twice a day: by 05:30 and 17:30 UTC. An additional forecast update for the next 3 days (66 hours) occurs between the above full updates: by 11:30 and 23:30 UTC.

The latest observations in METAR format appear on the website once or twice per hour, approximately in 40 minutes after weather observations have been made at the weather station.

Currently our website provides weather forecasts for 173'000 locations, as well as observational data, reported from 9'600 SYNOP weather stations and 5'400 METAR weather stations.
