• @ivo Love the tide forecasting feature! It would be really good if you could see it as a line in the normal wind/weather forecast along the bottom of the screen, so you could quickly click on, say, 13:00 in two days time and instantly see where the tide will be.


  • Love the tide forecasts. In the side bar don’t see the point of having tide in feet and metres in Australia. We’re metric. Can you change tide height units country dependent.

    I see that tide heights are displayed in feet and metres in Australia.

  • @WharfRat said in Tide Forecast on Windy:

    Not sure if it's at all possible, but a tidal graph like this one is very easily read and even much more informative when interactive where you can slide to a specific time or date to see the forecast; Just a thought. alt text

    Tidal cures would be very useful

    Love the site/app I am constantly impressed with the information provided. In the way putting my vote in, I'd love to see a tide chart like the one user lumpet one and user wharfRat posted about. Also as others have mentioned the meter to foot conversion is not correct for tidal height, e.g. 0.23 meters is not 0 ft. Another thing that would be lovely is a graphical interface like this:

    deepzoom.com

    where tidal current stations have a graphical representation of direction of flow and water speed. Please and thank you! Keep up the good work!

  • Tides are a really important factor to many windsurfers. They dictate the conditions and help our decisions on where and when to sail, so it goes hand in hand with the wind forecast.

    Your beta is a bit confusing and not very accurate either, at least not for where I live which is on the UK south coast - we have an abundance of live tide apps here to use. As they work with what are essentially only predictions they are suprisingly all consistent and accurate.

    I've worked with some API's to these tide tables, many are free or pretty cheap so I think to add tides to Windy is not a big issue, it just depends on who you ultimately use for the data source(s), how many days in advance you want to predict and how much if anything you want to pay.

    Figures and graphs are great, plenty of apps to reearch ideas for the UI.

    Single app for wind and tides is a winner !

    @LeGybe Hello, thank you for the review. The tide forecast is still experimental (more information here), so there will be further development in the future.

    It seems that semi dirurnal tides are being "predicted" on the northwestgulf coast of Florida. We have diurnal tides here and therefore the tide data provided is of no use. Maybe you could provide some clarification on why you have two high tides and two low tides daily in a place where that does not occur. Thanks.

    Id like to add that i love the icons on the screen that's genius.

    Although slightly useful, without a tidal graph option you have to leave Windy to make your own graph. At present it is easier to switch on the Navionics app ( or some other app) to look at tidal height in 3 or 4 hours time etc. Also can the option to have it in meters or feet be switched . I wouldn't think anybody would want to work in both?


  • @ivo
    Recently lost my favorite tide app. We use tide tables every day so I was beyond happy to see it here. bolded text

    @wharfrat Yes, I find it hard to tell on the current popup which day I'm looking at ... see this figure (Screen Shot 2021-01-13 at 8.26.16 AM.png image url)

    I must admit it is absolutely not clear.
