Windy offers new model ICON-EU with 7km grid resolution
Since Mar. 2016 the horizontal grid spacing for ECMWF model is
0.1° x 0.1° lat/long.
As 1° = 60 Nautical Miles = 111 km
0.1° = 11 km
"... The new cycle reduces the horizontal grid spacing for high-resolution forecasts from 16 km to just 9 km."
@ivo nice site, good job
as if it was possible to add the sensitive temperature option

Awesome! Thanks a lot!
@dzuremar We are also planning to use ICON data, but Netcdf jar can not open the grib file. What tools or library do you use to handle it?
Good job, it sounds great
Wat a nice gift
Is ICON-EU included in the free API?
Just a small comment on model resolution.
In Windy, ICON Europe is presented with a 7km resolution. DWD say it is in fact 6.5km. OK so Windy has rounded its resolution to 7km.
But using the Compare feature the resolution of ICON EU appears to be 6km.
Same with AROME resolution, the version used by Windy is 1.3km according to Météo France. It is rounded to 2km in Windy.
But in the same table it is shown with the non-rounded resolution.
It would be good to homogenize these values.
@idefix37 Thank you for spotting this, we will try to fix it.
Windy should use the correct value everywhere : 6.5km for ICON-EU and 1.3km for AROME
