Radar and Real-Time Lightning consistency?
I´m a great weather fan, and a great admirer of this project. Sorry if this has been discussed before, as I couldn´t find it on the search.
I have been keeping track of storms in real life from my own balcony, while at the same time watchinf lWindy´s real time ightning strikes. (better than tv for sure).
Really cool watching the strikes on the screen and the buzz they make, but what I´m seeing is that, sometimes, the real-life lightning in the general direction Windy , shows and its propagating sound wave will seem to really coincide with what I´m watching and hearing on real life; other times, most actually though, I find they differ a lot.
I have even seen very strong lightning with almost immediate rolling thunder that was just not shown at all.
So Is this inconsistency due to what´s available now in terms of lightning detection technology and internet data delays?
This is not a criticism, I just want to learn more about this feature.

RE: Windyty will use new name: Windy
Haha, I remember having discussions with my friends about what was the correct name, windyty or windytv, and this explains it! Nevertheless it didn´t make any difference because this site is so fantastic that you could call it "superweathermovingwindmap.com" in Czech and we´d still visit it everyday!!
We use Windy for windsurfing and hang-gliding and it is a terrific tool! Keep it up and thanks for your work!!
