|The Servei de Transport per cable i Meteorologia of the Ministeri d'Economia is in charge of providing the weather forecast and the avalanche risk of the Principality, especially elaborated by Meteo-France, that can be consulted in the automatic answering machines in Catalan, ph. 376 84 88 51; French, ph. 376 84 88 53, and Spanish, ph. 376 84 88 52, and since 1995 also on the web page www.meteo.ad, updated and improved at the beginning of 2007.|
The Service has 3 automatic meteorological stations and 7 manual stations at the ski resorts which provide nivo-meteorological data and soundings executed by the nivo-meteorologists from the ski resorts, a key element of great value for Meteo-France in order to elaborate the avalanche risk bulletin during the winter period.
Giving everybody access to all meteorological data from Andorra concludes a long effort of data homogenization for a better and easier understanding.
History of the Andorran weather service
The records of weather data begin in our Principality with total regularity and continuity by FHASA (Forces Hidroelèctriques d'Andorra, SA), exactly after the concession in the year 1934.
Therefore, is necessary to give homage to the pioneers of the Andorran weather database, that with effort and with the stations in Ransol's dam (1.640 m), casa del guàrdia d'Engolasters (1.640 m) and the Central (1.140 m), have constituted a valuable historical contribution for the study of the climatic conditions in our country.
The year 1980 was a second important date, when the Syndic Mr. Estanislau Sangrà signed a collaboration agreement with Meteo-France for the creation of the servei meteorològic d'Andorra.
Since this date, the service has been providing the daily weather forecasts and avalanche risk of the Principality to all institutions and individuals who have asked for them.
We wish that all people concerned in consulting this page find it useful.
Thanks should be given to all people who have made this data collection possible, from the first until the last datum introduced, automatically nourishing this database day after day.
