You can now check the latest weather data via Project NOAH’s Android App!
Project NOAH for Android (Public BETA) The official mobile version (native Android) of Project NOAH website (noah.dost.gov.ph) though without the Flood Map features.
I’ve been a heavy user of Project NOAH since it was launched. Enabling me to see the weather in near real-time. Although the data is 30-45 minutes late, that’s already a big leap compared to half a day data being reported by the weather bureau – PAGASA – in the past.
