Accumulated rainfall legend



  • Dear Windy,
    Is there a way to customise the accumulated rainfall legend?

    I would like more resolution between 40 mm and 1 m, especially when looking at 10 day accumulations when flooding is possible.
    eg: 0 ,1, 5, 10, 15, 25, 50, 100, 150, 200, 300, 400. I have added these extra lines to customise my colour scale, but the fixed displayed legend is not helpful.
    For example: legend2.png
    Regards

    You can use the picker to check the exact rainfall accumulation at one location or an area just by moving the picker. Here I clicked in the zone where the legend is less accurate and I can read 147.5mm of rain in the next 10 days.

    There is no way to customise the steps of the colour scale.
    But I don’t think that remembering 10 colours is so difficult. I have 13 for my own wind scale, and never use the legend.
    As @Yves70 said, at the end, the weather picker is the best tool to know the exact rain accumulation in the areas where your colours show high values.
    btw could you post a screenshot of a rain accumulation map with your customised colours. That should be interesting for Windy users.
