Windy 3D mode is back!
Looks great and much better than 2D for more true representation, especially at higher latitudes.

An excellent addition, thank you. If it would be possible I gave more than five stars!
Yea! 3D more realistically illustrates weather patterns, especially in the higher latitudes. Thank you!

It may be 3D if one wants to look at the whole world.
But I was just wanting to look at just e.g., Taiwan,
and I saw the 3D button and expected something like Google Earth where I can
tilt the view etc.
So for smaller areas it is just still 2D.
@jidanni Hello, radar is not available on 3D mode yet, that is why you see 2D.
I FUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKING LOVE IT MANG1!

OK, I did (logged out):
- Browse windy.com
- Click "3D".
Now I am looking at some kind of planetarium. I just see a lot of stars, no matter how I rotate the screen with the mouse.

This is excellent - Windy is such a useful tool for examining how climate change is affecting our planet.
3D mode is awesome!!

Excelente, espero que sea accesible también para los usuarios llanos en algún momento. Muchas gracias por el servicio, todos los procesos lo que antes tenía que imaginar, ahora están a mi alcance... y graficados!!
recently bought premium. why are my updates 4 hours behind?
twice today we were rained on and the radar did not even show while it was raining
great - fantastic! keep it!!
I really love this change....how do I find the full globe?

There is absolutely NO advantage of the 3 D mode, if you wanna know about the global weather.
The one and truly ONLY point is that you see the countries (landmass) in real size.
Anything else is really bad. i.e. why does swapping to 3D mode always change the layers I had chosen? 3D mode does NOT remember my settings. That's utterly crap ... and just one example out of many that don't work well on 3 D !!
So, if it was after me, I do NOT need any 3 D mode, not at all.
3D mode once was well, when the precessor of windy.com worked together with google earth. so why did you stop that ? That once already was a well working version, already years ago. Bit what you present now is nothing but development to the worse.

@wedda Actually there IS an advantage to having the Globe view i.e. 3D mode in addition to the Flat Earth view. 3D allows us to to observe POLAR and CIRCUM-polar weather and atmospheric situations in a 'more realistic' manner than the Flat Earth view... and to SEE WHERE Everything on Earth interconnects.
Here's an interesting example of how/why this is both interesting and important: Shortly before Windy.com went to the Flat Earth form, I was able to observe - pretty close to real time... the wind blowing north from Europe, up over Scandinavia, over Greenland, over Canada & Alaska and actually drop down on the Bering Sea where I live... not only was that interesting - from a global perspective, a Technological ACHIEVEMENT and a computer programming success as well, BUT the next day a European BIRD (Eurasian Bullfinch) was spotted here probably having been lofted and carried by that polar wind! That species has been seen here before (2x that I know of) but only having arrived via the winds that carried it from the Mediterranean, over Central Asia, China, Siberia etc., and then via typhoon winds, here.
OK, so it's a bird. Well, there are other reasons for wanting to see and understand planet wide circulation of air and water. Obviously: Forest Fire Smoke, Radioactive Plumes, Volcanic ash, Shipping and transportation AEROSOLS, INSECT migrations... the list is pretty endless... and it's kinda important to WANT to see this so as to learn how and where to reduce our negative effect on the ONLY planet we depend on :)
It's pretty much a 'connect the dots' thing. 'This is like this - because, That is like that.'
Other practical and philosophical reasons for wanting to keep 3D views: We all live IN the same Space Ship and being able to use Windy 3D to observe the interconnections is not just a 'fun' activity and 'diversion' but is essential to understanding, learning and teaching ourselves that we ALL are literally in the same little blue planet boat.
It's make it work time NOW, for ALL of humanity. We can't call Jean Luc-Picard to give us directions so as to save the ship... we COLLECTIVELY gotta figure it out and work at it.
WINDY.COM and 3D view IS ONE VAST and AMAZING TOOL that can help! :)
And, yeah... there are computer bugs to work out... like retaining the settings between Flat Earth 2D and Globe-Earth 3D... so give the developers a chance to work it out and add to the marvel that Windy.com and it's 3d view really is.
