Weather Conditions Tracker

Can you forecast the weather based on the feeling in your bones and joints? Do you often shudder at the thought of cold and wet weather approaching? If so, you’re not alone. Our bodies can be affected by pressure, humidity, and temperature changes, although the impact can be different for each person.

Our Weather Tracker allows you to document your local weather conditions with each diary entry. Once tracked, this information can be included in your normal Diary History Reports or aggregated and analyzed in our powerful Summary Reports.

Diary Entry Input

The Weather Tracker is super simple to use – just add it to your Diary Entry and let it do the rest. Once added to the Diary Entry, the Weather Tracker will first determine your approximate location and then will download your local weather conditions from our partner, Weather Underground.The statistics that are tracked include:

  • Temperature
  • Humidity
  • Barometric Pressure
  • Pressure Trend
  • Current Condition
  • Precipitation
  • UV Index
  • Lunar Phase

Summary Report Graph Samples

Temperature vs Time

This plot shows a combination of historical temperature & pain intensity levels vs time and allows you to spot trends between temperature changes and your pain levels.

Humidity Level vs Time

This plot shows a combination of historical humidity & pain intensity levels vs time and allows you to spot trends between humidity changes and your pain levels.

Barometric Pressure vs Time

This plot shows a combination of historical pressure & pain intensity levels vs time and allows you to spot trends between pressure changes and your pain levels.

Pain Level vs Weather Condition

This interesting plot is created by aggregating Diary Entry data containing weather conditions and pain intensity levels to generate a plot which shows the range of pain experienced for each type of weather condition.

The bars show the min/max pain levels recorded for the condition, as well as showing the average level as the thin green horizontal line.

The conditions are sorted so that the one with the highest average pain level is listed first (on the left side).

Pain Level vs Humidity Level Range

This plot also shows the range of pain levels experienced, but this time against humidity level data. With this plot you may be able to determine if your pain is greater in lower or higher humidity situations.

Pain Level vs Pressure Trend

It is believed that one of the mechanisms behind weather effecting pain levels is that an increase or decrease in barometric pressure can cause increased joint pain as our bodies react to the pressure changes.

This plot examines your pain level range across time where the pressure is falling, steady, and rising.

Pain Level vs Pressure Range

Rather than looking at the pressure level trend direction, this chart plots pain ranges against absolute pressure levels.

Pain Level vs Temperature

Plots pain ranges against temperature level ranges. The ranges are automatically generated based on the range of temperatures experienced during the reporting period.

Pain Level vs Precipitation Levels

This chart plots pain level ranges against precipitation levels. The levels are automatically generated based on the range of values recorded during the reporting period.

Pain Level vs UV Index

This chart plots pain level ranges against a range of UV Index levels. The levels are automatically generated based on the range of values recorded during the reporting period.

(Note: Due to weather data feed limitations, the UV Index information may not be available in certain worldwide locations)

Pain Level vs Lunar Phase

This chart plots pain level ranges against a the Lunar Phase(s) experienced during the reporting period. The report breaks down the lunar phases into the 8 common phase definitions.
