I'm cancelling premium because I can't see the wind symbols if the satellite view is on and you won't allow me to see grib symbols with arrows and feathers.

Wind display is terrible if the satellite imagery is on
The purple indicators for wind over a blue ocean are all but impossible to see. Why we can't have arrows that are clearly visible seems like a serious design bug.
You don't like grib arrows with tails because that is too old timey, but at least we could see them on the screen. I'm setting my subscription to not renew, you have until then to fix this and convince me to stay.
I'm figuring getting the forecast more accurate is probably beyond your control and not have grib arrows is your way to try and paper over this problem but it isn't working because you forgot that contrast is needed to be able to see your stupid little breeze symbols.
RE: Alert menu wind direction should also include arrows
@jmh2002 You mean common standards like wind barbs? Windy doesn't do those because they are too old fashioned.
RE: Wind Arrows
@idefix37 Kind of sucks. I find the animation to be less useful. This isn't instagram, wed don't need "pretty" we need functional. Nothing stopping you from adding windbarbs in addition to the stupid animation and nothing stopping you from adding extra windbarbs with interpolation. Too bad the windy developers are all teenagers that can't decipher scientific symbols and instead need pretty colors.
