Do you miss historical data on Windy? Here's what to do (edited 07/2017)



  • As the skipper of two vessels i regularly use the historical data to assess new anchorages when out at the reef. Please bring it back. Improve the wave data to include the shape of the reef.



  • Bring historical data back. The format worked well.



  • Yes, historical data is useful. I use it for route planning at sea. I do not facebook so please don't ask me to join a facebook group. Just telling you I find the historical data useful. Thank you.



  • We are interested!



  • I would love to have the historical data back on Windyty.
    It would make Windyty the only weather site I visit.



  • 680 views and only 13 replies?! Come on guys. Say something. Vote with your keyboard. I say yes please, historical data is vital in determining faults, trends and expectations in any analysis.



  • I'm new to this app but I'd love this ability



  • Windy[ty] is an absolute gamechanger. Have been using since first launched, and its just keeps getting better [living in equatorial lats once youve used Windyty with ECMWF data theres no going back!] thanks so much Ivo, Pavel and team!!!
    Living with the ocean in remote SW Pacific where observed data is nonexistent or highly unreliable, hindcasting is critical to understanding how weather systems impact local conditions. Being able to step back even a few days [prior to current time] on the timeline provides the granularity that all archive subscription services over the years have failed to, being able to pull up previous seasons wind and waves at that granularity….total game changer!
    For planning oceanographic charters months ahead, being able to access historical data in Windy's UI adds hugely useful context in predicting trough, ridge, and frontal trends, even rainfall anomalies, which are notoriously difficult to fcst here in the SPCZ. Damn handy for planning those all-too-rare kiting and surfing strike missions around Sols too ;)



  • Please provide archives



  • indeed, we need historical data back pls!



  • I used archive A LOT. Pls get it back - it's a great deal for lots of us.



  • Please provide archives. If you still have an issue with storage space, maybe users can save the periods they are interested on their local machines or on the cloud drives?



  • Yes, please bring back the archives ! It's very helpful in so many cases !
    Thank you :)



  • +1 on archive data, I probably use it more than forecast data.


  • Windsurfer

    Possibly a stupid question - Is it an archive of the forecast or archive of actual wind that occured? If the latter, the usefulness of this feature would be tied to how often the data is collected and could make a big difference in the storage capacity required. In short, i would like to have access to historical wind data. Just found Windy.com. Best layout i have seen yet. Thanks.



  • Hi, i am a sailor too and would love to have the archive back. Thanks



  • +1, as Pavel said don't forget to "join this Facebook group ; [https://www.facebook.com/groups/1380853558658371/] ,invite your friends who you think would be interested." and share!



  • Please restore historical data on Windy. As a surfer, and one who lives on the beach, tracking the seasons is essential. Historical data helps lots. Best,
    gf


  • Administrator

    After a lot of thoughts I have decided (as a founder and main developer), that we will postpone historical data feature until Windy will find (and develop) sustainable business model.
    This can be in any range from 2018 - ...
    Stay tuned. We have millions of users, we PAY for some weather data and someone have to pay the bill.
    Ivo



  • yes please bring back Historic. If there is a cost to you then work up a model to make some money - but I guess you need to know how to cost based on how many potential users. You will bring ALOT of interest to your site if you gave a free trial for historic for say a week, and I am sure the genuine users of this data will not be able to stand not having it after seeing it again and would buy it.

    There will be significant commercial interest - but please don't forget the normal people also :)
