Windy launches Satellite layer
This is so great! Thank you all so much. Will donate today!
Some sites have ground radar imagery with satellite imagery:
Is this something that can be eventually added?
@cloud-maven1 Hi, thank you very much for your feedback!
Yes, this is something we are thinking about.
This is what I have been looking for! Your competitors used to have the "infra+" and removed it and a lot of other handy views. Now, if you cold do a desktop temperature window I could trash them altogether!

I'm loving the new Satellite/Rain Radar features!

Congrats... state of the art!
@ivo Well Done!!
For a split second I thoughts those airborne red caps might have been helium balloons with miniature drones onboard.
Amazing use of satellite technology ...congratulations on the new layer.
Just watching smoke from the current NSW , AU, coastal bushfires..terrible loss of bushland...over 150,000ha burnt so far.
@vikkypandya Thank you!

desde Nicaragua, considero muy buena la nueva version de Windy, interesante y mas facil de interpretar, Felicidades!
Sure, looks perfect now, by great things, got a greatest things to
Wonderful! I can´t wait for the full implementation of this new layer. You guys are fantastic!

Great work on the new satellite layer Windy team - it looks great! @ivo
Awesome to see brightness temperatures included on the weather picker.
I've noticed that brightness temperatures are only included for below 240K though. Could you please include the full range of brightness temps (above 240K) this will allow cloud top heights of lower cloud to be deduced.
Many thanks and continue the great work!

Hi Windy Team!,
thank you for an awesome product. Just keeps getting better. As you said... Radar is not everywhere but Satellite is.
One of the EUMETSAT products I often use is the MPE layer. Through its majic, the layer almost asks as a radar.
The other cool thing would be to be able to add lightning to Satellite (MPE) and then validate a storm cell.
The other layer I like is the dust layer. Helps to see sand storms.
THAT IS EPIC!
Don't see any coverage for Far North of Canada. Arctic air masses v. influential on weather in lower latitudes. Any way you can superimpose Jet Stream on Satellite view? Perhaps this is already possible; I am a neophyte user. You'd be surprised at how many northern Canadian pilots use your website for weather.
Keep at it. Great site.
Unfortunately it is not possible to mix 2 layers on Windy by superimposing them. That would be very useful but not easy.

Une amélioration visuelle très discrète.
I is good but not as clear as the former depiction. Maybe designers can consider slide bars to let users choose hue, intensity and transparency corresponding to the range of cloud temperatures. Or perhaps a few selections to choose from. The IR+ is a great tool to indicate what nearby convective weather is doing so very well done indeed or making this tool available in near real time.
