Weather updates a tap away with CAA’s new app

In line with Qatar’s focus on adopting the latest global trends in technology and innovation, the country’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has implemented a series of measures to help deliver more accurate, efficient, and faster weather-related services.

The Authority recently launched a new meteorology mobile application - Q Weather, which brings the latest weather updates in Qatar and the world at the users' fingertips. For the users’ convenience, the information is available in Arabic and English.

The highly dynamic app features all the information users may need regarding weather conditions, from hourly forecasts, daily reports in different areas of the country, to temperature and humidity rate. The app also provides details on wind speed and wave height on the coast and at sea.

App users cannot only benefit from the weather information about Qatar but can also see weather information on other important cities in the world and have the option of adding more cities, as they like.

A complete 15-day forecast can be viewed on top of the monthly reports that include the most important climate information for each month of the year.

The app’s Activity Service informs users on all the outdoor activities and marine sports that can be practiced at a particular time, depending on the weather.

Weather Stations in the app display the locations of the land and marine monitoring stations on the map of Qatar and reveal their latest observations.

Moreover, the app is updated with the latest weather warnings, and a wind map service, to allow users to exercise caution when needed.

Another significant benefit of the app is the link it forms between the public and Qatar’s Meteorology Department in that it contains an interactive platform where users can send an email directly to the department. All the contact information of the Meteorology Department is also available in the app.

The introduction of Q Weather is an affirmation of the CAA’s continuous approach to the development and use of modern technology to provide services in the best and fastest ways.

CAA gives great attention to Meteorology, based on the importance of the essential role it plays in various economic activities and areas of daily life. It provides important services to the authorities responsible for air traffic and air navigation, ports and maritime navigation, and all other government agencies and private sectors in the country whose activity is influenced by weather factors.

Earlier this year, CAA’s efforts lead to the establishment of a new, state-of-the-art weather facility in Qatar, the Mukaynis Meteorological Center.

Additionally, in keeping up with international standards in the field of meteorology, CAA also teamed up with Ashghal to install electronic panels on some of Qatar's major streets and highways, aimed at providing quick weather updates and alerts to road users in Qatar.
