How to set up a Windy Alert
On Windy.com or on your mobile app, select any place in the world and click on "Alert for this spot":
Set up the weather conditions for Wind, Waves, Rain, New snow, and Temperature + overall weather that you want to meet. If you like, you can even rename your alert (optional).
Please note, the criteria operator is "AND" – which means that ALL the conditions must be met (not only some of them) in order for you to receive an email alert.
Add your time preferences (hours, days, duration), forecast model and the email address where you wish to receive your alerts.
When your conditions are met, you will receive a nice email:
But not only that. When you are logged in, you can check all your favorite spots at www.windy.com/favs and see whether your conditions are met:
If you suspect you are not receiving alerts that do meet ALL the conditions, please send us the ID of the alert(s) via email@example.com
You can read the ID at the bottom of the particular alert settings (Favorites >> "Edit alert" >> "ID of this alert: ..... "), or alternatively in its URL.

I don't have the Alert option (only favorites). Do I need to upgrade and where do I do that?
@DebCrawthe56th iOS & Android will come soon with Alerts. So far works only on website

Are the alert criterias like AND or OR criterias ?
Example : i want an alert when wind OR rain (hence two causes of alerts), not for wind AND alert (hence one alert only if there is both wind and rain)

Request for feature: Often I want a different alert times for the weekends, such as all day, compared to the weekday where I'm only interested in the evening weather. Could you make a feature where times are chosen in relation to weekdays?

Hey, I can't set up alerts on my phone? There was a setting when I first set it up and now it's gone?

Found the alert pop up but there's nothing for storms. Are there plans for the storm warnings from the Bureau to be passed on in the future?

@ivo Is it only email or do I get a push notification on my phone as well?
You get a badge on your mobile when you have an alert. On this screenshot, I received 1 alert.
Then click on it to get the alert detail.
