Wind speed in cyclones seems reversed



  • Hey Windy Team, awesome job, love your work!

    My wife and I happened to be on Hamilton Island when cyclone Debbie hit a month or two ago.

    We used your app as a reference and it was great. I could measure the distance to the eye of the storm, but then we lost internet.

    I'm concerned that your model is not quite accurate, in that the wind speed drops towards the middle, whereas it should actually increase right up to the 'wall' of the eye.

    I look forward to hearing back!

    @markfranklin99 If you were using the ECMWF model, you might want to try using the GFS model. I know a few people had the same issue. And I know once the developers finish making the radar layer, they will start to introduce some new weather models. So be patient! :)
