The Portuguese Institute of the Sea and the Atmosphere has a new website where anyone can give rise to your vein of "time master".
Observing site replaces MeteoGlobal and is open for users to share information with photos and meteorological records. It is almost an Instagram of the conditions of the time, being able to replicate some reports that already appear many times in the social networks, as an example was the fall of hail this week in Lisbon.
There is a form to fill out with the information, location on the map, photos and indication of existence of victims or damages, which must be submitted for reference of the observed phenomenon.
The most extraordinary events will then be analyzed by the IPMA meteorologists who can disseminate the conclusions to the users and the scientific explanation of the events.
On the site there are already enough records of volunteer observations but the more curious ones can still check the registry of meteorological stations.
It is also worth checking the FAQs that although they are short they allow to know better some phenomena and until knowing the difference between a devil of dust (dust devil) and a tornado.
