Relative Humidity in forecast data - why not?
Relative humidity is such an important weather parameter for many people - not everyone lives in a desert. I know there is a map layer for this, but given that virtually every other forecast app, even my local newspaper and tv station, all include this in their base forecast info, why isn’t it available as such in Windy? It seems a glaring omission.
Are there plans to add this to the forecast data, and if not, why not? Given the map layers existence, the data is obviously available.
I routinely find myself going to competing forecast apps solely because of this omission in the Windy forecast, fwiw.
As long RH is not added to the point forecast panel, you may consider this workaround.
Select Meteogram which gives Temperature and Dew point. When these values are close to each other, the RH is close to 100%. So the difference between these values gives an estimate of humidity (same with the 2 curves shown in Meteogram). But it is not a direct reading of humidity.
That would be useful to have RH added in Basic meteogram:
