About MinyanCast

Q: Where do you get your forecasts from?

A: Like every other weather company, we take data from computer models to assist in the forecast process. Unlike most other companies, MinyanCast takes into account local nuances that are usually described as 'Baltimore Weather'.

Q: What kind of forecasts do you provide?

A: MinyanCast offers daily forecasts for day-to-day activities in addition to community-specific forecasting. That includes forecasts for going to shul today or on Shabbos, as well as the best time to say Kiddush Levana.

Q: Is there any cost to using your forecasts?

A: No, our forecasts are completely free for use. You can use them as you wish for no cost.

Q: What do you provide that is better than other companies?

A: MinyanCast provides detailed but clear forecasts that don't require you to dig through hourly and daily forecast graphs. The forecasts are made from a local weatherman who knows the idiosyncrasies of Baltimore weather. Additionally, MinyanCast provides forecasts for minyanim times as well as for Kiddush Levana. These areas are not covered by other companies.

Q: What are the various colors on the radar in your weather panel? 

A: The different colors indicate storm intensities. There is a helpful key on the top of the radar, that has different colored boxes and a description of each. Brighter colors usually mean stronger storms. 

Q: What does the "Latest Weather" button do? 

A: The button opens a panel which provides detailed current weather conditions. This includes the current temperature, humidity, real feel, wind speeds and more. It also displays a live radar to see storms nearby. In addition, a button is available to view the latest forecast. 

Q: How often do you issue weather outlooks?

A: Outlooks are issued in the afternoon most days of the week. You can view them and their issuance times on our outlook page.

Q: How will I find out about updates to the forecast?

A: MinyanCast constantly monitors the ongoing weather conditions outside and trends in forecasts. Updates are provided on our weather updates page, at https://www.minyancast.com/p/weather-updates.html.

Joining our daily delivery program (free) or downloading our mobile app (also free) is a great way to get notified about important updates.

Q: How does your hourly forecast work?

A: Our hourly forecast uses high-tech automated software to calculate key weather details for the next 48 hours. Data is displayed in a simple and easy to use chart. The exact numbers may vary slightly from the text-based forecasts due to an algorithm-based forecasting model that creates the chart.
