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..
I understand that an endeavor such as this is driven by a desire to provide something useful for others. As one individual I can confirm that achievement. I am a retired boat captain, living on a sail boat currently in N. Carolina, U.S. I use the wind overly and wave height and direction overlay, and now the radar display on literally a daily basis. It is part of my morning routine; pour a cup of coffee, delete my spam mail, study the wind patterns. As your 2017 comment stated, last year during the storms that hammered the U.S. east and Gulf coasts I studied these overlays on nearly an hourly schedule to make decisions on what to do with my boat (my home) in preparation. Of all the available resources, Windy is by far the most useful in determining what may happen tomorrow with these storms. As a form of "insurance" towards the safety of my boat (my home) I would pay a monthly subscription for this service.
@ivo I would really like to pay for this app. I love it. I use it every day. I love to watch the wind patterns change. It is critical to my bicycling and kayaking. I live in Chicago where we have very changeable weather, especially on Lake Michigan. I also travel heavily as I am an Advertising Exec leading the analytics practice. Despite all the travel, I don’t love turbulence. I also work on the flight, but need it to be smooth to do so. Before and during every flight I triangulate the Wind and Radar data with Turbulence Forecast App Data l so I know when we might hit bumps. I will gladly pay $100 annually for this app. Let me know where I can donate.
i used for hurricane maria was a great source of information i recommend to a version for windows 10 pc
buen día, es una excelente pagina, solo se manejar algunas cosas de ella y me gustaría aprender mas no se si tengan algunos tutoriales acerca de los modelos que me puedan ayudar. gracias
