So I don’t know why you still receive alerts if your favorite is not set for an alert. I suggest that you delete this alert (not only suspend it) and set the alert later again. Your list of favorites should look to the picture above.

@Korina Looking at whois history, the domain windy.com was bought from a U.S. company REFLEX PUBLISHING, INC. in 2017, that's at least two years after the other "windy" already used that name in commerce. Looking in the media, windyty was renamed to windy shortly after purchasing the domain windy.com. It also looks like both "windyty" and the Russian (now U.S.) "windy" started approximately at the same time - in the year 2014. But windyty was renamed to windy after purchasing windy.com in 2017. Put chronologically:
Two apps Windyty and Windy started independently at the same time in 2014.
Windyty purchased the domain windy.com in 2017 from some third party
Windyty was renamed to Windy and now we have two Windy's
It doesn't look at all that the other windy app is using the name illegally or in bad faith. I would say from their point of view, someone else is using their name/brand.
@idefix37 said in How to read the Surfing spots:
These colors depict the height of waves, more exactly the significant height. The scale in the low right corner of your screen shows the height of the waves according to the colors. You can choose the units, meters or feet.
Thanks a lot, I didn't know that,
