RE: Offline alternatives
RE: Offline use of Windy
For me the best way is to keep the forecast in a small video. There are many « Screen recorder » which are available. On iPad and iPhone this is a standard feature that I use sometime.
You just need to activate the time slider to get a 10 days-video forecast. Only 1 file per layer. If you need the forecasts of 3 different layers e.g. Wind, Gusts, Rain, then you have only 3 files in memory.
Looking to the forecast offline, you can stop the video where you need to analyse the details.
RE: Separation images
This is due to the overlapping line of 2 satellite pictures. This meridian line crosses Iceland and Madeira island.
RE: Waves colours
I am not in the Windy team so I cannot set my setting as « default setting ». As you, I am only a member of the Windy community !
But if you want to use my colors setting for waves, here is how to do it:
In windy.com Menu (not in the phone app) go to Settings
Scroll down and choose Customize color scale
In Select overlay: Choose Waves
At bottom of page find the line Import/export
Click on [view code] to open a window pop up
Delete the text code in this window
Select and copy all lines of code here below and paste them in the window
Press [Import Gradient]
These new colors will be saved in your Windy cloud and will be applied to all your devices including in phone app.
But if you want to come back to Windy default colors you can press Load default
NOTE: Each high waves range is represented by a uniform color without shading or smoothing, with only a small mixing transition.
Dark green is 2m waves
Medium green is 3m waves
Light green is 4m waves
Yellow is 5m waves
Brick red is 7m waves
Bright red is 10m waves
So at a glance you know the wave height.
RE: Scale on map
Yes, there is a scale in kilometers.
You just need to click on the right button of your mouse (or a long press on screen if your are on the phone app). This opens a pop up window where you can select Distance&planning.
By this way you get the exact distance between 2 points, or more.
RE: Map projections
If you read carefully this topic, you will find a possible answer to your suggestion:
RE: Snowfall history map
If you cumulate the snowfall over several days, it will not give exactly the depth of snow, because the snow compacts gradually: Its density increases.
On Windy the Snow depth layer gives you directly the information as well as the snow density.
But because of the low resolution of the weather models, this information is very rough and quite inaccurate in mountains.
RE: Question about PPBV
For Carbon monoxide (CO)
1 ppbv = 1.145 μg/m3
According to this source: https://www2.dmu.dk/AtmosphericEnvironment/Expost/database/docs/PPM_conversion.pdf
1 mg = 1000 μg
So when you say « And I found that 1 PPBV = 1 mg / m3 », you have mixed milligrams and micrograms.
173 ppbv =173 x 1.145 μg/m3 = 198 μg/m3 = 0.198 mg/m3
So it’s approximately 0.2 mg/m3... fortunately for you otherwise you would be dead !
RE: Colour gradient on wind and gusts
You can customize the colour scale for wind and gusts as you like. However you can do this only on the website, but your settings will be saved for all your devices, including the phone app.
Find the way to do it here:
On my side, I have modified the colour scale for wind. If you like it, you can use it. In this way, it is easier to implement:
RE: Would you like to receive Windy Alerts as push notifications to your mobile device?
Ivo doesn’t ask you to give your phone number here, only your interest for such a feature !! Never give you phone number via a forum.
RE: New map on Windy: Active fires
For each layer, you can click on the clock in the low right corner. You get the information about the data including the provider, the update interval, the resolution and the last and the next update.
The Active fires layer is not the only one that is not in « real time »
