Search by Coordinates now assumes I want to look at land far away

    Dear Windy,
    I frequently look up the weather for specific spots in the ocean (I am almost never interested in land-based weather). However, when I search by coordinates, it used to pop up with a "x.x x.x coordinates" option. Now it only gives you a nearby location option. In the example attached, I am trying to land on the specific spot of -21.392 114.07, but now windy only offers me the option to choose "Western Australia", and if I click it, I go to the center of the continent about 500nm away. Is it possible to restore the "search by coordinates" functionality? I also prefer the coordinates to be preserved when I add it to favorites, rather than taking a name from a nearby land location.


    I was hoping this would not be a big deal but I'm finding my capabilities completely neutered without being able to fly directly to the site I am interested in. Guessing and checking until I land on the correct model gridpoint is a clunky, inefficient solution.

    Additionally, it would be really handy if you could display the lat/lon of the mouse cursor somewhere on the map. I know I can add it to the info after I click, but I'd rather it display before I click (so I know where to click and don't have to guess-and-check) similar to google earth and other mapping platforms. Is there any plan to incorporate this function?

    Thank you for developing the best weather data visualization tool available now, I think Windy is the most amazing weather website every created.

    Thank you for your support!

    Try to add semicolon inbetween coords. This assumes you search for ZIP code

    Semicolon does not work, but a comma does now! Thanks!
