Windy is experimenting with CAP Alerts (weather warnings)


  • Administrator

    Windy started to display the so called CAP Alerts as a new layer "Weather warnings".

    Unfortunately it covers only some areas like Europe, US, Russie etc

    A lot of backend work was done by @kekert, a long time Windy friend and now our team member.

    All your suggestions will be considered in this thread, or you can use the already running discussion: https://community.windy.com/topic/7086/weather-warnings-new-layer

    Enjoy!

    I really like this feature. I guess the only complaint I would have is that it doesn't update the alerts very frequently. (As shown by the screenshot I took just now) But other than that I love it. I understand this feature is still new so I know there is still lots of room for improvement. Just thought you should be aware.

  • That's...
    A dream come true for me!
    At least it's actually accurate, but there are a few non-accurate stuff. For like, Today in Hungary (for example), it shows the wrong region where the warning should be (should've been the Northern Great Plain instead of Central Hungary).
    (I don't live in Hungary btw, I was just saying an example).
    For real though, thank you so much for making this dream I had come true! :D



  • Good information directly on the screen that shows you that weather can change fast and you need not search in any menue! It's well done and I like it!



  • bravo très belle initiative qui pourrait sauver des vies et des biens JPS



  • merci beaucoup je devais prendre la mer



  • I do a lot of work with Prescribed and Wildland fire. Would it be possible to tap into the NWS red and yellow flag warning system? Love the site and use it all the time for work.



  • @ivo I think the weather warnings are a very good addition, anything that keeps us updated about what is happening now can only be good, and as or if it continues then I'm sure it will be greatly improved. Keep up the good work.
