Windy launches "Observation vs. Forecast"
Just Great !
It is an information I was really looking for.
I am always wondering what model we should use.
If you manage to keep this information and provide a long-term (1year?) summary of this comparison it would be perfect.

@Gkikas-LGPZ It seems that the orange bars indicate strong wind gusts, and that the red circles indicate times when the forecast was not accurate. Really sweet feature to see how accurate the forecast is at a glance.
The color coding that is labelled VFR and MVFR all of the way at the bottom are instrument recommendations and visibility ratings.
OK, orange bars indicate wind gusts and
red circle indicate not accurate forecast.
I asked why red for only one degree difference?
What are the criteria for red (bad) forecast?
I never asked for VFR etc coding. It's obvious!

Green circle: ≤ 3 degrees
Tan circle: 3-5 degrees
Red circle: ≥ 5 degrees
I don't think so.
Please : it would be great to have the old model too !
Thanks in advance.

Hi, awesome! But I am missing the numerical value of the air pressure.

Overall, yes to progress. However, please bring the wind strength graph back. It was enormously useful for sailors.
I agree with you, the wind graph shown on the weather station window was very useful to check when an active front or a tropical cyclone passed above this station.
Overall excellent, however please if possible bring the wind strength graph with the maximum gusts in knots back. It was very useful and interesting. thanks.
Looks great and will give it a try.
Is there some way to send you a contribution other than posting my credit card number on the internet. Do you have a mailing address where I could send a check?

Love you guys and the hard work you do! Go wxgeeks!!
Hi - is this available globally? I am in Australia and the Windy site displaying does not have any extra options or features.
Awesome - I am really looking forward to trying this new capability out. Not seen such a capability on other weather web sites - thanks for the innovation!
@blahdi I am unable to get this observation vs forecast view. I am in the US-Seattle.
Is this feature released to US?
@blahdi I got it to work. I did not know I had to click on weather station (Its obvious in hindsight) to enable observation vs forecast.
But, I don't get the same view as Sydney above - I only see Temperature, No combined tEmp, Wind, Pressure, Category.
sorry to spam - i cannot delete my previous comments due to privileges.
I got it to work now nearly as shown above -it depends on which weather stations I click on - maybe, they are shown depending on whether they only show temp, wind et al, and some weather stations measure all of them.. The weather station I happened to be looking at only measures temperature - and then that's what confused me initially.
Thank u for this wonderful feature.
i don't like this new feature because it will be available on all weather stations..official and PWS. But what should the point on PWS? PWS are often not reliable..because they are not installed with the complicated rules for installing a weather station for meassure real! values. And then compare this PWS to the weather forecast? Useless imho...
