Windy 3D mode is back!
The 3D is much better for showing my students the proper perspective of the large scale meteorological features. I now use both the 2D for the high resolution views by zooming in and the weather forecasts from the different models, although I prefer to call them simulations. I think the general public gets a better idea of what they are by saying simulation. It's not someone walking down a runways showing off the new bathing ware.
It's a great product and very instructive as well as entertaining,

Imponerende og giver virkelig overblik og hjølper med forståelsen af hvordan vejret opfører sig ikke bare lokalt.

This is very exciting to me. What a great view. So far all features work as stated -- although I haven't tried to break it.

Muy bien , adelante con ello es de gran utilidad.
There is a problem with the night shading in the forecasts for individual towns and cities by day 5. Areas that are shaded to show night time are covering day time icons. It gets worse farther into the future.
Also a meteorological suggestion. You list high, medium and low clouds. To be meteorologically correct it should be high, middle and low clouds. There are no medium clouds.
Love the the 3D! Another parameter that would be of interest is vertical motion forecasts, showing where the air is moving up and down.
You list high, medium and low clouds.
You may be right, but the ECMWF call this parameter ‘medium-level cloud cover (MCC)’ :
Showing this model, Windy uses the same name.
I do not see why ‘There is a problem with the night shading in the forecasts for individual towns and cities by day 5’.
From day 5 the model provides a 3-hour step forecast instead of 1-hour. This makes the day length ‘visually’ shorter.
@korina Do you think two other critical layers could be added? The threat of soil moisture for agriculture will determine if a large crop will live or die..that could be accomplished with thermal IR ?
Second, want to see surface temperatures of the world ocean. Climatereanalyer can do it.
Lastly, A new layer that combines Temperature AND Humidity that could create a Wet Bulb layer? I would love to see that. 35C is a dangerous temperature and it kills lots of Americans every year. A warning of deadly heat waves and show them where they develop could give cities advanced notice. I went though the June 29th heat wave in Seattle and it smashed all records. It killed 570 Canadians in Vancouver BC.
@lork Hello, thank you for layer suggestion, we might consider adding the moisture layers.
Regarding the ocean temperature, you can already use our Sea temperature layer.
@skychaserman Hello, what town shading do you exactly mean? Could you enclose a screenshot?
@korina czy już wiadomo kiedy 3 D będzie w aplikacji mobilnej ?
@przemo1986 Hello, right now there is no certain date.
@korina jestem trochę zwiedziony długo nie ma tej innowacji w aplikacji mobilnej a ja korzystam tylko z aplikacji mało kiedy z strony na przeglądarce. Mam nadzieję że najpóźniej w styczniu będzie dostępna wersja na androida.
