I followed the guide here, and connected my weewx instance (Hardware: raspberry and Davis Vantage Pro) in literally 10 minutes.
That's great feedback, thank you! :)
Water and land colours are exactly the same and there no possibility to change the base map colours.
For most of layers (Wind, Temperature, ...) this is the best way to show the same layer colours above land and above water.
If you change the land colour for example you get this kind of image, and you alter colours on land.
On the website Windy.com, you can save the complete URL when your favourite layer and model are displayed. Save this URL as bookmark. Next time you will open the same page.
On the App it’s not possible to change the default layer and model.
Windy does not create any forecast data but instead only visualises forecast and actual data received from various third party providers.
So the question of accuracy is not for Windy but for the data providers. You can check information about the data source here:
Right, significant waves height is more important for boating than Swell itself.
If you compare NOAA wave charts with Windy using the NOAA model, Wavewatch3, the maps are quite similar for significant waves heights, which is reassuring:
Fine, you got it ! I’ve just seen your sea temperature animation. Excellent !
It is easy to change color settings on Windy, but looking to the map, the color/temperature scale in low-right corner shows always the same range -5°F to 100°F, so it’s useless in your case.
