Could someone tell me what data is shown for the current time? Is it what was predicted by forecast for the current time or based on actual. From my observations I think the current situation is based on forecast data but I would appreciate confirmation.
The data predicted by forecast model.
If you want to see the actual data as observed by weather stations (mainly at airports), you have to click here:
After then, by clicking on a reporting station, you can have observations up to 20 days ago.
Love this site. It is now my " go to " for all weather data. I am a commercial pilot and an avid sailor. Your site combines exactly everything needed for flying and sailing. Thanks. buz
Hello, I would like to know if you have saved data from previous years, statistics, how can I do to see them, thanks to good flights.
Historical data are not available on Windy. In the following thread there are information about websites where you can find these data :
Here’s a sustainable business model. Make a pro version with features like offline storage of forecasts, downloadable gribs, etc. I would certainly pay for that !
Where on the web can I find a 'beginners guide' to using and setting up Windy. All I find are promotional videos, nothing of substance on how to begin and set up. Please advise where I can find this. Katy

There is a quick user guide made by Colin, a Windy user.

I always use windy app for weather, because of easy to use and know me all about situation.
Since the beginning of the Internet there have been few things that have become really good. Wikipedia or Google Earth as an example.
In my opinion, Windy is one of them.
With the Rainradar this site is really complete.
For commercial providers, Windy must be a nightmare.
Sign up if you need support (money) to stand up against the commercial providers.
A perfect weather page, free of charge and without advertising is good for the world.
Congratulations and thank you from Germany
@snipersupersix Thank you!
You say "With the Rainradar this site is really complete".
Wait for the lightnings data and the site will be "super-complete"!
I need help about this apl, do you know some one from indonesia can share info with me, thanks,
Where can I report errors??
I see no indication of weather changes on Windy with Tropical Storm Carlotta approaching. We use Windy for boating and this could have been a very dangerous situation! Fortunately the storm is reported on the news..
How do you specify the term "error" ?
Windy is a site which visualizes the best global wx forecast models.
Windy is not issuing warnings, this is a duty of national weather services.
The wind speed and 24hrs accumulated rainfall (as shown on windy) are:
For advisories and warnings I suggest you to consult National Hurricane Center
not only reports on the news.
Totally agree !
Best regards from Koblenz, Germany
Let me think on a business model for you. If you would like? I am retired programmer now sailing into tropics with vessels helping in distaser areas. I volunteer with a group called International Rescue Group, and help all the time with Seven Seas Cruising Association. we sail about 5-10k miles a year in our own vessel, this year was in East Caribbean helping.
You have done an amazing job with your apps and hard efforts..
