GFS model info / status on next update

  • Hi there,

    Where you select Euro or GFS model it does not tell you the correct time model last updated like the euro does. It just says ‘now at any moment’.l so difficult to tell if model update has kicked in again.

    Been like this for a couple of days. Keep up the great work.

    GFS updates every 6 hrs.
    Unfortunately, the latest data came to Windy 19 hrs ago (model's run 03 Jan/06 UTC).
    So, next update will be "now, at any monent"
    when the latest model's run will be available to Windy.

    I hope @developers will investigate why the initial GFS data are relatively old.

    @themoff @Gkikas-LGPZ I don't know if this is the actual issue, but the US government has been shut down for a few weeks now and is affecting a whole bunch of things. It is possible that weather model updates are affected by this too. At the time of posting, the GFS model still hasn't updated. And it appears the NAM is also having the issue. 0_1546594106496_Screenshot_2019-01-04 Windy as forecasted.png

  • TheRadarGuy No. During the american "shutdown" among the few things that are not interrupted there are just the weather services and affiliates becouse weather forecasts are considered an issue for national security.
    Infact the problem about GFS updates is just a windy problem, because the other sites and apps are regulary updating GFS emissions.
    You should fix it.
    Also NEMS and NAM are not updating regularly.
