@JohnHaagmans problem has been solved thanks to my Son
Just went in and activated on my Apple Phone , then came back to Windows desk top and clicked on 1 hr forecast and all good
Thank you for your assistance
Pls find here the reason why Windy cannot change the names in maps:
But you can do it by connecting to Open Street Maps and suggest corrections:
First of all, please start to check the posts published on this forum and discussing rainfall forecast.
Example : https://community.windy.com/topic/13586/about-rain-calculate/2?_=1602329137551
There are many others, use the advanced search tool to fine them and to read them. You will find a lot of advices.
Principles are always the same :
compare the different models to verify the consistency within the forecast from the different models. It is a kind of statistic approach to give you a level of confidence
don’t look only the meteogram which is focus on one location. You should check with the Windy rain map, the rain forecast in an area of let’s say 20km around the location. Often, models foresees no rain at the location but for instance 5mm at only 10km from the location. Thereofore risk is high to get rain at the location.
Combining 1) and 2) should tell you the probability of getting rain or not
With the app on IPad that does not works. You must log in on desktop to connect to Windy website and change the units on the color scale at bottom right corner of your screen. Then your setting is applied to your iPad app.
@HannaPer Dear user, we do not generate our own maps, instead we use maps from OpenStreetMap.org and we have no direct control over them. If users spot any issue with the map or a wrong name, they can visit OSM and correct it there. Corrections will be later projected on Windy.com.
Please see the following posts about how the map data for Windy is sourced and displayed from www.openstreetmap.org:
Please also note: For every language, a different place name label can be displayed, so please choose your correct language and data display.
Further discussion of place name and language issues or disputes should be directed to the OpenStreetMap Forum here: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/index.php > scroll down & select > users: (the relevant country for your dispute and/or question)
In the case of a political dispute please leave such topics out of the Windy forum and instead focus on the discussion of weather.
Thank you for your understanding :)
