I'm on the Nova Scotia coast in Canada. I'm pleased that the buoys are in the observations here, but as reported elsewhere they are labeled (ship) but I can easily identify them by number.
If possible in the future with buoys I think it would be very useful to show the wave data to compare with WW3 and the Euro models. In particular; Significant & Max Wave Height, and Dominant Period.
There are a few sources for data around here;
The Environment Canada
A separate set of University buoys
Keep up the great work, and thanks so much.
You can also do it here:
const options =
// Required: API key
// Put additional console output
// Optional: Initial state of the map
I disagree with your suggestion that the gust layer be removed. Don’t use it if it's not useful to you.
It’s the model that generates the gust forecasts, Windy just displays them.
i.e. The models need improving.
If you take the gust display out of Windy, you firstly won’t know there's a problem with the model (nor when it’s been improved and become usefully accurate) and secondly you’ll have no indication of the more likely areas for gusty winds to occur.
Models get development work where their inaccuracies have become obvious and problematic. If we want useful and accurate gust displays then point that out to the people producing the models as to the inadequacy of the gust forecast and hopefully they’ll have that scheduled for further development.
At present the gust overlay may not be accurate but it’s far from useless. It’s useful for watching and timing the movement of weather changes and coastal surges of associated squall lines, etc. Which is very useful to see coming, even in 3-hourly steps.
@Radek-M said in Widget weather model:
Hello @verminal, unfortunately only ECMWF is available for the widget. But in the future there will be a option to switch models. Hope soon.
Thanks. Great news!
You are right. Airport runway designations are based on their magnetic headings—and the planet's magnetic poles can move!
ZSWH changed runway naming someday between 2014-2016.
Windy uses ourairports.com as airport database.
This database is very outdated
I think Windy must use another database for airport's data.
currently widgets using only ECMWF model, but in the future there will be option to change model.
Also location is little bit different. This should be changed in the future.
