WeatherFX estimates the effects of warm weather on human physiology. The app can provide guidance on work/rest ratios and fluid intake due to high temperatures. WEATHERFX is both a health & fitness and weather app. WeatherFX is an app that can retrieve temperature, barometric pressure and relative humidity based on the Android GPS data. The app will also approximate the wet bulb and wet bulb globe (WBGT) temperatures from values retrieved from the closest weather station. The WBGT is a composite temperature used to estimate the effect of temperature, humidity, wind speed, and sunlight on humans. It is used by industrial hygienists, athletes, and the military to determine appropriate exposure levels to high temperatures. Please note that the WBGT is just an estimate. The estimate does not account for wind or low light conditions. The estimate is based on a moderate amount of sunlight. True WBGT can only be acquired through WBGT instrumentation.
Once you accept the prompt to acquire the GPS position, the Latitude and Longitude labels will be populated. Click the “Update” button and the app will populate the temperature, pressure and humidity text fields based the closest weather station ID to your position. The app will then calculate the wet bulb and WBGT temperatures. You'll also notice that the WeatherFX app will place the location name and time of the reading at the top of the screen. This way you will know if the readings are in your location and timely.
Besides acquiring the weather from GPS you may get your own estimates for wet bulb and WBGT temperatures by typing temperature, pressure and humidity into the respective text fields. Click the “Manual” segmented button, enter the white fields followed by clicking the “Update” button.
The app will also compute random numbers for temperature, pressure and humidity clicking the "Shake" segmented button. The device may be shaken and new settings will populate the fields. Click update button and the random wet bulb and WBGT temperatures will be computed.
After an update has been executed, you may use WeatherFX to quickly convert temperatures from Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa by clicking the desired “°F” or "°C” switches. Barometric pressure may be converted from inches mercury to millibars and vice versa by clicking the desired “in” or “mBar” switch.
After an update you will be presented with a flag condition button on the bottom left of the screen. The flag condition is derived from the WBGT estimate. If the flag condition is not “NONE”, you may click on the condition to yield work to rest ratios and water consumption given the current estimated flag condition. These figures are posted as a quick and portable reference only. Guidance for these figures are acquired from the U.S. Marine Corps Order 6200.1E dated June, 2002. You are strongly advised to read the complete guidance to know what each entry means.
Revised for Android 5.
Antikytherus part of our Weather and have average installs from 100 to 500. Last Update Aug. 29, 2015. Google play rating is 80.0. Current verison is 3.0. Actual size 488.0 KB.
This app updates when it wants June 13, 2014 So far not what it use to be, fails to update manually. Update June 14, 2014. It was the equipment. Checked with other phone galaxy s5 and sure enough it works.
Great app. Gives a much better idea of heat stress and work or play times based on heat and humidity. Should be mandatory for any organized or sanctioned group activity.
Weather FX is a must !! An excellent application....information vital to the support of personnel and equipment during critical military operations. The most valuable part is the reference charts and the accessibility to the required information of the Heat Category. This eliminates the use of field equipment and provides information from anywhere in the field.
Wanted to love it GPS refuses to update on this app. I'm not in Northridge, I'm in the Middle East. If it worked, this would be an amazing app.
