Weather and Migraine Webinar II – What's New in Migraine Buddy

We heard that many people had requested another session of our Weather and Migraine webinar and so we’ve brought it back—just in time with our latest Spicy Mango app update that includes new and improved weather features! ??

- Pressure Forecast and Risk Mitigation

He also shared about how the latest Spicy Mango updates in Migraine Buddy can help you mitigate weather risk factors. Below is an overview of what we have improved on for both iOS and Android versions of the app:

48-hour Pressure Variation Forecast

FREE FOR EVERYONE

The next 48 hours of forecast is ALWAYS AVAILABLE, and if you need more than that, we provide up to 7 days of forecast in MBplus. ??

We know how important this feature is for everyone and it was never our intention to remove it. All other free features in the app WILL ALWAYS REMAIN FREE.

Pressure Variation Graph

A fixed scale is now used to display the graph.

The previous graph was difficult to use as shared by many users. With this new graph layout, it will be easier to visualize patterns in variations!

Your current location is now also shown on the graph!

Weather information (temperature, humidity, etc.)

NEW!

Available

Retrieve the information when you edit your location under “Settings”.

Units of Measurement

Adjust your preferred units of measurement in “Settings”.

Daily Alerts for Pressure Variation Forecast

Available

NEW!

Replaced the previous minimum/maximum pressure alert.

Reaching a minimum/maximum pressure level does not correlate with how quickly or strongly pressure varies, which is the weather factor that increases migraine risk for many people.

Legend for Pressure Variations

?? LOW: under 6mbar / .18 inHg

?? MODERATE: between 6mbr / .18 inHg & 10mbar / .30 inHg

?? HIGH: above 10mbar / .30 inHg


Here, we are referring to the VARIATIONS in pressure – measured by the maximum pressure minus minimum pressure. It is NOT the specific pressure level but rather the variations (drop or rise) that impact your attacks.
