Windy visualizes models of European and American weather prediction centers. Windy does not make its own forecasts. These numerical weather prediction centers use satellite data during the initialization phase or assimilation.
Then how does Windy get the data from these centers? probably via the internet.

For clickable URL, use [TEXT](http://some.url)
It seems that the http:// prefix is mandatory, keep that in mind ! Or simply, test the result in the "Preview" first when creating the post !

Thank you for your post. Unfortunately the place names are not controlled by Windy.
Please see the following posts about how the map data for Windy is sourced and displayed from www.openstreetmap.org:
Please also note: For every language, a different place name label can be displayed, so please choose your correct language and data display.
Further discussion of place name and language issues or disputes should be directed to the OpenStreetMap Forum here: https://forum.openstreetmap.org/index.php > scroll down & select > users: (the relevant country for your dispute and/or question)
In the case of a political dispute please leave such topics out of the Windy forum and instead focus on the discussion of weather.
Thank you :)
@Marienka I just set up this app on the recommendation of a friend. I can change the temperature scale on my desktop (Win10) from C to F - no problem. But, on my iPhone (using iOS 12.1.4), I can find no way to do it.
I've closed the browser after confirming the settings on the desktop (which supposedly saves the settings to the cloud). I've closed the app on the iPhone. When I reopen it, there is no change - temps are in C and everything else is still metric, etc. I've read the two threads on here and gone to the link --
Is this "feature/bug" still not fixed? Or, have I just not stumbled on the solution yet?
Love the app, but this is frustrating!!
Well seems that I do not know this problematic. I wanted to make a info page for our new monster feature, we are finishing right now. And it seems that you understand the matter more than I do. Thx for all the comments.
Do you have any plans on sharing weather data/parameters (e.g. wind and temp data) in XML or JSON formats through Windy API? It'll be a nice companion to Leaflet map currently in use.
Thanks and Please keep it up!
I am in the Azores islands, which is in the middle of the ocean (250 thousand inhabitants, plus other mid ocean archipelagos such as Iceland, Madeira, Canaries, Cabo Verde, Saint Helena, etc.), so does that mean I am shown a London UTC time for my location at Central Azores (Pico)? There is indeed a time zone for East-West Mid Atlantic ocean, which is Azores Time Zone. Azores TZ is 2 hours behind Madrid-Paris-Berlin-Warsaw and 1 hour behind Dublin and Lisbon and London as well (GMT-1)(UTC-1).
"Of course, if you open detail in the middle of the ocean, we use UTC, since there is no timezone."
