For what it is worth, I still cannot get any of my devices to show the widget with units in Fahrenheit rather than Celsius. I have tried Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. I've tried on three windows machines and a Chromebook.
Edit After checking a couple of more times: I did manage to get an error to pop up in the console on the edge browser. I have no idea if it has an significance.
Thank you for your post. Unfortunately the place names are not controlled by Windy.
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 :)
Well... That is an interesting question. Ocean waves are kind of complex. Of course, like any other waves, their speed, wavelength, period... Are connected. The other thing to take into account is the depth of the ocean or lake. There are other complex parameters such as the height of the wave. Two waves can have the same wavelength, but can vary in height... The higher one is more energetic and move slightly faster than the less energetic one, so their periods are different... So there is no linear rule between wavelength and period. This is not true for electromagnetic waves!
Moreover, equations are not simple and depend on the type of waves. For exemple, tsunami waves are not sinusoids... And I still can't understand why. However, this is a graph that can answer your question, valid for wind waves, showing different values depending on the depth of the ocean floor.
L is wavelength in m
D is the depth in m
Period is in seconds
And this is an other graph showing frequencies of different ocean waves... You can see that tide waves are the most energetic ones! Their wavelengths can be over 6000km.
No that’s not a bug.
When you see the 3 bars on in the top left, it’s a screenshot from the website windy.com.
The phone App shows a different layout. Settings are available in the quick menu on the left side.
Press the Wind symbol (1) to open this quick menu. Scrolling down you will find Settings (2) which open a list of main settings (3).
But you must note that some settings can be modified only via the website. Using the same account, modify the settings you want. They will be applied automatically to the phone App.
