First of all congratulatios for your spectacular job
Guys, do you ever consider to add the following parameters to your awesome work?
-Heat index based on:
Relative humidity-air temperature
Dew Point Temperature-air temperature
Wind speed-air temperature
thanks and thanks
Hi @yopo , thanks for your message, we're really happy that you like Windy!
As to your suggestions - we do have "Humidity" and "Dew point" as individual layers but not a combination of these two + air temperature as a "Heat index" layer, the same with "Windchill" (wind speed + air temperature). It's not our priority at this moment, but we will certainly think about it! All the best ~ Marie
Just to make sure that I am getting it right:
Heat index = a quantity expressing the discomfort felt as a result of the combined effects of the temperature and humidity of the air.
Windchill = a quantity expressing the effective lowering of the air temperature caused by the wind, especially as affecting the rate of heat loss from an object or human body or as perceived by an exposed person.
