Windy is the first weather service in the world to globally forecast thunderstorms
There are different thickness of flash symbol as it can be seen on this zoomed view on a thunderstorm area in North Dakota this morning at 9h00 UTC. They correspond roughly to the lightning density.
In winter is it possible to have snow precipitation and thunderstorm at the same place? Then it could give some display trouble?
Yes! There are different thickness of flash symbols!
Ivo, sorry! I did not notice it earlier.
Yes, it is possible to have thundersnow.
If you zoom-in over east Nepal-China border (Himalayas) you'll see such areas.
I believe (if 2 different situations exist, e.g. snow and tstm) the "strongest" feature must come into view (appear).
The "strength" is determined by the "bigger number" in W.M.O. table of weather symbols.

Footnote from DrD...I would like a float-out label on the icons. I don't know which one does what, yet. It would help if they had a mouse-over label. Thanks, though...this is still great.
Not sure about first weather service...
Look at kachelmannwetter (Germany)
I, a fishing guy in Hong Kong thanks to Windy that provide a very accurate wind forecast for me. Really love it.

You guys are better than my national weather service, for crying out loud. Got any work for a remote sensing specialist?

Dear Sir, dear madam
5 minutes ago I discovered your service.
I had to hold my breath, I cannot believe
the quality and availability of your service.
In a few years I will start a circumnavigation,
your "Windy" will keep me safe.

I love it. special when is to help people and is a great idea ***** services
I have a ranch with Central Pivot irrigation in northern San Luis Province, Argentina. Electric th'storms are terrible there and cause a lot of damage on the electric parts of the equipment. A good forecast on this would be very helpul for us in preventing such an electric storm and unplug all in advance. Thanks..!
