Hi @Proniewic, we are aware of these locations around the world. However, this problem should be addressed to Open Street Map, since we use their maps and have no control over them.

@idefix37 Sure, I take your point, I don't want to be throwing the baby out with the bath water. I'm generally thinking about non-orographically induced convective precipitation when I talk about the merits of extrapolation. But do bear in mind – models can be pretty bad when it comes to orographically induced convection.
Frontal precipitation is a very different story however, and I would most certainly agree that a high-resolution model will beat extrapolation in a frontal situation over complex terrain even at short lead times. I'm not sure what the Swiss approach specifically is, so I won't comment on that.
With convective showers though, the terrain won't matter as much. The triggering is a bit less random, sure, since the model will understand the thermal properties of the orography to some extent. But terrain induced resolved convection still has a ways to go, especially because of a problem known the "grey zone", which is emerging in sub-kilometre resolution limited-area models.
All the same, if anyone knows their way around complex-terrain NWP, it's the Swiss :)
Hello @BrassBoss, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy Windy Premium. Would you share with us why?

Just few comments about these controls:
The best way to change the prediction in 1 hour increments is the hold your smartphone in one hand and to move the time slider with your thumb, you get a better control. But this is not possible with a tablet.
I think that Windy try to reduce the number of buttons to give more free space to the map on a small phone screen. With your proposal it would need to add 9 buttons more.
This request is not new, but the change must be made in Open Street Map. Just do it.
Are you talking about the slope angle of swell?
Breaking waves are observed near the seashore where the water depths are reduced and when the ratio height/wave length is about 1/7 i.e. the wave steepness dramatically increases.
Global waves models like ECMWF WAM and WW3 are not able to show that because their resolution is too low (13km and 22km) in particular to take into account a precise topography of seabed.

@petrbonito is there any message when the application shows you the error?
