Hi, there is a Sounding feature on Windy which could be interesting for you. It allows to get a profile of the atmosphere above your location as provided by ECMWF. Click the right button of your mouse to open it.
It shows 2 curves: the red one is the air temperature, the blue one the dew point. When the 2 curves are close together, there is a risk of clouds at this altitude (the water vapor condensates when the air temperature reaches the dew point). The profile changes when you move the timeline cursor.
So it's another way to estimate the risk of cloudiness. But I don't know if it brings really additional information compared to the Cloud layer as it comes from the same model forecast.

You already got several answers to the same question 2 years ago:
Have you tried all the models that Windy provides, ECMWF, GFS, NAM, METEOBLUE, and compared them?
Have you compared the temperature forecasts with local official weather stations?
For temperature, it seems that METEOBLUE (only available in Meteogram) matches fairly well a local Personal Weather Station (madis) close to your location :
Note that the Windy widget works only with ECMWF model and that METEOBLUE is not shown as a map neither in the weather picker (small flag).
And as a conclusion the question is NOT "how accurate Windy is", because Windy does NOT make predictions, but just visualizes raw data from weather models run by major meteorological centers like ECMWF, NOAA,.... the right question would be "what is the best weather model for this location".
Ouch, such a global resolution would be a bit better than 0.01° (1111m at 0° Lat), i.e. 100x360x100x180 = 648 M cells/grid for each parameter/level.
To be compared to current global weather forecast model GFS 0.25° (1 M cells/grid).
I guess displaying grids of such a model on public web applications should also wait for future high-speed internet cables and hardware :o)))
Windy does not create any forecast data but instead only visualises forecast and actual data received from various third party providers.
Windy therefore has NO control over the forecast or actual data provided.
Thank you for your understanding :)
ECMWF WAM is just the name of the wave model which is developed and run by the European Forecast Center ECMWF.
The other wave model available on Windy is the WW3 run by the NOAA.
These models give a prediction of the significant height of waves i.e. the mean height of the highest third of all waves, and their period i.e. time between 2 wave crests.
