Why is Windyty so inaccurate?



  • Here in Fiji we are on cyclone warning regarding Category 2 cyclone Ella. Yet when I am looking at WindyTy there is no low, no cyclone, and pressure is stating 1012? Just curious if you guys want to maintain a certain standard you need to be far more accurate. Or you claiming the rest of the meteorological community is wrong and there is no cyclone?

    Cyclone is there. Just switch to GFS model



  • Thanks. I did that and again reporting a pressure of 1008 when it is 987. This is a big issue because so many, even here in Fiji, rely on Windy for it's current weather situation and predictions. When someone looks at Windy and there is no red indicating a cyclone, they carry on as if there is no danger, although Fiji MET has issued Cyclone Alerts. People here have told me - No there is NO cyclone. Very dangerous, specially for an app that claims to use more accurate data, and then you suggest I should switch to the less accurate data to view the cyclone. Just my input. I have been an supporter of Windyty for a long time and this is really disappointing.
