Customize the color scales of Windy layers

    This layer is different from all the others because the colors do not correspond to a continuous numerical variable.
    For example, in the case of Wind, the numerical variable is the wind speed (0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9.... m/s), which can be modified and to which a color corresponds, which can also be modified, with an automatic blending of colors between each line.
    On the other hand, in the case of the Precipitation type layer, it is Rain, Snow, Wet Snow... (no continuous numerical variable) and there cannot be a mixture of colors between the lines, otherwise it would not be possible to identify the type of precipitation.
    The program and code are probably different. The interface cannot be the same. Windy developers could give a more precise explanation.

    In fact, why do you want to change the colors of this layer?
    BTW have you already customized other layers?

    Yes I have customized other layers in the past. In Canada we usually use green as rain and blue as snow, so this is why I was interested in customizing this layer. Thanks for your answer.

    In case you are interested, we have these colours in Canada:

    GREEN = rain
    BLUE = snow
    YELLOW = rain-snow
    RED = freezing rain
    MAUVE (PINK-PURPLE) = ice pellets

    I see. Developers could take into account these colors in future, may be.



  • @idefix37 yes

  • Why can't the colours in the widgets?
    I would love it for the many widgets on my own site!
    Can you add this please, that would be awesome!
    It looks me not difficult.
    Thank you in advance, ;)

    I changed my colours of 40 MPH or higher to help find tropical storms, and know when a High Wind Warning may need to be issued. Red is hurricane, and pink is Major Hurricane for me as well, with a major contrast so I can find them well.



  • I love this layers:

    I agree with you! These widgets are really great..

    I've customize this color scale based on wind force and hurricane scales. Red is used for tropical storm/gale force winds, as the winds are dangerous enough to produce certain damages. Light white/purple indicates hurricane force winds (Category 1), and grey is used for major hurricane (Category 3). Dark blue indicates winds for jet stream and other extremely rare winds.
