My question is about rain radars display in Windy.
I've remarked that for my region, what is shown on this layer often seems too "pessimistic". I don't think it is caused by artefacts of radar reflectivity, but rather by the choice of a color scale and data range.
I'll take the current weather as an example :
If I look at the map on RainViewer.com, things look different :
I suppose that all rain radar apps just show the same data, processed or displayed differently.
Is that true, or does the two services use different data sources ?
If yes, it seems that the colour scale used here is key for good distinction of clouds/light rain/heavy rain. What appears as green and blue on the Windy map is shown in grey on the other map here, making it easier to spot where rain really is.
I also remarked that the colour scale / data range of rain radar is not customizable in Windy (though layouts from weather models have customizable colour scales). Might some improvement be possible here ?
