Re: [Options to view the Canadian models](RDPS and GDPS)
As a Canadian user, I would love to see canadian models being added in Windy. The HRDPS has a 2.5 km resolution and does a decent job in Canada, especially with thunderstorms. The RDPS is also very good and useful for Canada and Northern US, especially with synoptic systems, with a 10 km resolution, but I don't know if it would be better to just add the GDPS, which is currently at 15 km, but will replace the RDPS soon as it's about to move to 10 km resolution. The RDPS will likely be discontinued after the GDPS upgrade.
I too would like to see an addition of some of the Canadian Models (personally I would like the HRDPS or GDPS). The reason being is that these tend to do well in the Canadian Arctic due to it being linked to the ice models that the Canadians are using.
Myself and several people I know use Windy all the time. But when we go for trips to the arctic, we find the Canadian Models tend to do better up there and have to switch to another site.

@RobBurry @olivierveer Thank you for the suggestion. Our team is always interested in new data sources and models, we will consider it.

The addition of a Canadian weather model would greatly enhance the value of windy.com in Canada. Windy.com is a great weather resource, but the addition of a Canadian model would significantly improve it, especially for those flying in northern Canada. With all due respect, it is time to add a Canadian weather model, rather than just replying that "we will consider it". Thanks.
@geraldashcroft Yes. They keep saying "we will consider it" for years on end with no evidence that they are doing so. It is disappointing.

Hi @NEGL, we are sorry about the fact, that sometimes it can look like we only send a few words and do nothing. But we are doing our best to still add new data and functions to our app and we always consider interest of our users. On the other hand, this is not only up to us and all data are not for free or even for sale. In other cases, the implementation is the issue, so please be patient about adding new features to Windy.com.
