Windy is characterized by its intuitiveness. It is certainly promising to reduce the cognitive burden. This is the case with 3D simulation. The less likely users are because we have not noticed it.

I also miss the 3D mode. The northern wind systems are much too powerful in the normal view. In my opinion, the 3D view should be set as standard, then it will be used. ;-)

I agree. If the 3D were prominently placed in the layers, it would be noticed, and if people like the graphics then it WILL get used.
The 3D mode was great to check the position of the jet-stream and how it moved southward, meandered, etc. Then you could check the surface pressure, temperatures at different altitudes, in a real scale, and realised how everything married together. It was a really useful to understand the whole thing as an integrated system.
Still miss it ;(

@peter-llanes Your on the mark again with 3D. I've notice that our weather begins at the poles and ripples toward the equator. Depending on the wind-streams from the poles different wind patterns form, over the large oceans and large landmasses, e.g. in the form of either large systems to numerous like hurricane swirls. One can see 'the types' uniformly occur, e.g. in the Pacific and the Atlantic at roughly the SAME time (though distorted by other adjacent land and water influences). Having the 3D helps understand how the weather patterns (wind; jet-streams) are affected by 'undistorted' oceanic and continental factors (and the poles) in real-time and forecasting. Not having 3D withstanding, I think Windy is doing a great job at allowing us to have better and safer lives. Thank you, Windy Developers.

I have used the 3D mode for teaching purposes in class on atmospheric science. If it's really gone, that's a shame. I agree that your site is still amazing, but no longer suitable for my teaching.

Please give us back the 3D mode... :-)
(The rationales for this have already been stated from other users)
Pleeeease... ! :o)

Perhaps those of us who loved the 3D mode were too silent about it! I would also love to see its return :)

I loved 3D mode. Huge feature to lose. Sorry to hear it.

@rkeeling For a site so innovative, seems like removing 3D was/is the antithesis of that approach. Instead of removing it, they should have included the Tesla Roadster and a zoom out to show solar winds...
Is there any other alternative elsewhere to check weather forecasts using a 3D mode viewer? It seems Windy has not interest at all to listen any of our concerns and reasons.
Thanks mate!!!!! cheers

This web app who has inspired Windy at beginning has a very rough UI compared to that friendly of Windy. It has not really evolved since it was shown to me in 2015 while sailing in the Scilly.
Now it includes the probability of polar aurora, and for those interested by this subject, the tropospheric and stratospheric polar vortex can be shown.
