• Frontsystems, their type and speed of movement are valuable information for weatherforecasts especially to sailors.
    Please add fronts and their movement to the forecasts.

    By the way: I am deeply impressed by the splendid presentation and the outstanding quality of weatherforecast given by Windy.

    You find here the reason why it is not possible to have fronts drawn in Windy:

    In addition, what brings the plot of fronts? The position of the air masses? The changes of direction, and the eventual strengthening, of the wind? The type of weather, cloud systems, precipitation? All of this you find it in detail on Windy. The fronts were imagined in the 1930s, at the time when this synthetic and graphic presentation allowed a simplified representation of current and forecasted weather. Today's weather models provide much more detailed forecasts, even if they are not able to offer drawings of fronts.
