Historical Wind Data
Dear Windy Team
Would it not be possible to store the Wind Data and enable the users to go back in Time?For Sailing Trip Planning it would be very nice to know what weather can roughly be expected for example in Winter.
I have understood that Windy has not planned to offer historical data:
If the historical data could allow you to know the weather, day after day, during 10, 20 or 30 years, then a statistical treatment and data compilation would be necessary to calculate the average strength of the wind, its direction on large ocean areas. That’s a lot of work ...
The most simple for a long passage is to use the Pilots Charts. These maps are available month by month, and are based on observations from many years. They are free.
Example for November month.
