What timezone is used at Windy?

  • administrators

    Timeline bar at the bottom of screen Windy uses local time of your computer.

    In the detail of any location (when you open detailded forecast) the local time of that particular location is used. Of course, if you open detail in the middle of the ocean, we use UTC, since there is no timezone.


  • Can you just add a function do display ALL THE TIME in UTC? Aviation fly by using UTC

  • Hang gliding pilot

    How does it handle Daylight Savings Time?

    @HGlydr Hmm will have to check

  • I think this matter could be clearer. 1. For example, when I see the forecast for a given location, instead oh "hours" you could put "local time (UTC+x)".

    1. When watching the map, that takes the time of the computer, you could add as well, on the label with day and time, a parenthesis with the UTC used. 3. I can be interested in watching the time in New York from Europe. Maybe another option is to offer the option of changing to local time of the point clicked with the mouse...
      Just ideas. Just arrived to your site, Great jobs guys.
