Both ECMWF and GFS models are computed 4 times by day at 00h, 06h, 12h and 18h UTC (the so-called "runtime").
Model data dissemination begins AFTER each runtime as follows:
- ECMWF: ~05h45m (see here)
- GFS: ~03h20m
- Each runtime provides both 1h and 3h forecasts, as said above
Other global forecast models (including ICON) have generally the same runtime hours.
@idefix37 Thank you. So only advantages is that we can have 1 hour forecast in premium user.. other than that no special benefits. For India, we have ECMWF, GFS and Meteoblue forecast only available. When ICON forecast shall be expected to include.
@ashoksiva Hi, ICON model is already included and if you have Premium, you can see 1 hour forecast. Nevertheless, we will soon add update times every 6 hours.
I understand this user is living in India, so the European ICON model has no interest for him. He wants the global ICON.
@idefix37 Already we are following ECMWF and GFS models. ICON also we prefer sometimes which is available only at meteologix.com website. It will be great if ICON model forecast is updated in windy for India.
@ashoksiva I understand now, we may add the global ICON in the future.
Thank you all for updates.

@Korina I'd like to add my vote to have global ICON added. :)
@anthony10 Thank you, we will consider it.
