@ivo Yes, the favorite layer that you can select for easy access so you don't have to go through the long list.
@Tomber42 Yes, this is fine but for example I like to have air pressure as one of my "favorites layers", but it always gets deselected.
It’s not possible to get windy.com via Iridium or Iridium Go. You need a broadband internet connection that Iridium cannot provide, nor the other satellite phones:
These satellite phones are low bandwidth devices which allow only to receive GRIB files for weather forecast in addition to calls, sms, email, but no normal internet connection. But Windy cannot deliver GRIB files:
Do you plan long transoceanic passages or only 4 to 5 days offshore?
wind speed is default view in Wind layer, however you can also choose another point of view such as Wind gusts and Wind accumulation
Wind gusts are the highest speeds measured in some period of time at a certain place.
Wind is sustained minimum speed measured at least for 1 minute
Wind accumulation shows locations where highest wind gusts are accumulated
If you open side menu with More layers you can choose which layers will be placed in quick selection.
for instability indications, compare the slope of the temperature (red)
to the slope of the dry or saturation adiabats (grey)
You are right, there are different averaging way of the wind. In most of places in the world, wind is averaged on 10 minutes, except the US and the airports which use the US standard of 2 minutes. 1 minutes is only considered for the Saffir-Simpson scale used by NHC for tropical cyclones. It is sure that most of weather models are not calibrated to give 1 minute-wind output.
For a long time I tried to know what wind average is considered for each weather model. I’ve never found an answer about that. The reported wind speeds by weather stations in part of the world are averaged on 10 minutes and in other part on 2 minutes. And all these data are used during the assimilation phase by each weather models. So what more can we say....
