@jason-surette Hello, the reason why you do not receive notifications might be that you have too many conditions in one alert. Please understand that in order to receive alert, all selected conditions have to occur at the same time.
I would recommend to reduce the number of conditions or create separate alerts for each of them.
We know that these non-official weather stations (PWS and madis) are generally pretty wrong, because of their bad location. So making a development to show them with a precision of 0.1° every 10 minutes would be for me ridiculous. I would prefer to have the possibility to deselect them.
Btw if that hurts your rationality, just show Reported temperature and Reported wind together with Outdoor map.
Do you know that Windy does not make any forecast but just shows the data provided by ECMWF, NOAA and DWD as it is considered as the good one and covers the globe? Have you checked the predictions of these 3 models? There might be better local wave forecast providers but you do not say where you encountered those poor wave height estimates, probably not far from sea shore.
Windy wave layers don’t prevent to rely on local conditions that people at sea must be familiar with, such as local currents, seabed details and coast line shape in addition to local winds which all have a great influence on the height and shape of waves.
@ken I wrote SkewT. However, other work has kept me from giving it the love it needs, so I might have to suggest you look at the RadioSonde plugin instead. It's newer, and probably a little more reliable.
Feel free to give me more details in case I can find some time for it though, as I cannot reproduce exactly what you mean.
Forget the tracker if you want to get the current local predicted wind and select the Wind layer. Right now there is no strong wind in Nova Scotia.
Remember that this tracker is based on the max gusts field during a period of time. So it is a good way to get the track of the hurricane but not the current local avg wind.
@korina oh and sorry, one more suggestion before I forget. Not sure if this deserves a separate thread but it would also be extremely useful if there was an optional setting where alerts extend out to 7 or 10 days.
I know accuracy is lower at that type of range but if it was available as an option that could be turned on or off by premium or more advanced users (while keeping the default alerts to 5 days unless the user forces a change) and adding a disclaimer that skill will be lower, I think it would be a great addition.
As both Radar and Rain data layers are rasters, I'm not sure that rendering them together would be useful on UI map.
Radar data: real time observations in [Now-12h..Now], with validity step a couple of minutes
Rain data: forecasts in [Now..Now+10d], with validity steps 1 hour
thus these two data layers couldn't be contemporary (excepting maybe every full hour and only in the past)
Generally speaking, overlay two data layers is great when when a vector data layer (e.g. pressure isolines) is rendered over a raster data layer (e.g. Wind in color shading mode).
When you overlay two raster data layers, you have to disable the layer on the top in order to see the layer on the bottom. Or well to play a lot with new transparency color of each of the layers, which is not trivial (as both of them have blue palettes in this very case)...
