    • Configure your own colour spectrum for any overlay you want
    • Switch to 3D globe is no more automatic and must be done in menu

    Depreciated features

    • Due to the huge infrastructure costs, we do not store historical forecasts


  • This is an amazing product which I use for professional pilot services and hot air ballooning in the US. Thank you for creating such a useful product. I appreciate the enhancements to the aviation portion.



  • @compasst Do you know how to rotate the Globe without necessarily referring to a city. Say rolling the earth from NE N America to say Bering Strait or SE Australia? The old format enabled this to be done but I can't figure out on this format.

    I could not agree more! Thank you for a wonderful tool that I use for helicopter preflight planning. The lower altitudes available for wind forecasting is really helpful! Thank you again!



  • Wonderful improvements - thank you.



  • Love the site and the improvements. I use them to forecast weather, wind, waves and swells when traveling offshore in the boat.



  • @ivo This is simply fantastic, WindyTv is quickly becoming not only my #1 site for weather forecasting, but also the only site I need. Great work!



  • Awesome work for all!



  • This is a great product that I use daily in my work as a helicopter pilot on the North Sea. Thank you!



  • Just want to say that I really like your weather site. It is amazing!
    Thank you so much.

  • A Fabulous application, thanks.
    Is it still possible to animate the timeline so I can see how the weather changes over the forecast period?
