Colours on the pressure map
Hi, guys! Thanks for the best app ever!
Just one thing: recently you changed the colour scheme on the pressure layer (on windy.com).
That's nice. But could you please revert it back to the previous one (with bright green, yellow, blue and red instead of new pale colours)? Or at least give an option to choose to remain with the old one?
The old colouring remains on the your mobile app, and it's perfect.
The new one is much less visual in terms of cyclones etc..
Wind animation (which is white) was was really physically visible with bright pressure colours, whereas with pale ones it's not the same.
For a long time I have customized the colours of the Pressure layer so as to make it easier to identify the areas of high and low pressure, in red and blue with white in betwen. Recently Windy has introduced a new colour palette for Pressure similar to my settings but with a slight different hue. For me this new palette is much better than the old one.
New Windy settings:
The white can be replaced by a light grey if you want to see the wind animation clearly when pressure is near 1013 hPa.
With the old Windy colour palette the wind animation was not so visible with Lows shown in white, as seen from an old post:
This change of colors in the pressure systems renders was what a great tool, to useless to me.
@idefix37 I'm sorry, but the new color scheme is just disgusting. Please return the old colors! Thank you.

Hello @Tank302, you can change color scheme for every layer however you like. I was able to find the old color scale, you can adjust it and it will be visible on both desktop and mobile app.
@petra-pik Thank you very much! :)
Thanks petra.pik she told me the old codes. Now much better! Green is the best pressure for people. Red is too high and blue is too low. Everything is simple!
I agree with you, I strongly prefer the new set of colours associated with the pressure map !
Having said that, as Windy allows us to chose the palette of colours we want, this is not a problem for those who don’t like to change them 😅
@petra-pik Can you please copy past them here? I mean you have feature of import/export.

@molnia777 We don't store these, I just made a screenshot when this was still in production.
@molnia777 It seems that Tank302 is using the codes you would like to get so maybe he can copy the codes in the settings and paste them here
