Three hour jumps are just too crude

You will observe that for major storm blobs one can follow the logic of how they travel.
But for anything less, it is: how did cloud A jump to point B? Etc.
Therefore we see that three hour jumps are just too wide.
One hour jumps are needed to keep the cloud movement logic recognizable. P.S., no I am not "overly zoomed in for my own good."
The site does a super job with the little wind arrows. Now time to fix up jerky weather blob (cloud) movement.
OK it seems each zoom level has a differing level of appropriate jump gaps.
At zoom level 5 three hours is fine, and any finer grained jumps are a luxury.
But at zoom level 8 at least one-hour granularity seems to be best -- unless it is clear desert weather all day with no changes at all.
ECMWF and NEMS models, provide data in 3hrs timesteps.
GFS and ICON , in 1 hr.
@Gkikas-LGPZ I see. Hmmm, it seems that their predictions are vastly different too. So I suppose you fellows made the best choice for default. OK.
