We have started to display wind and waves directions as a string (like N, NE, E, ... ) by default.
If you like directions as number, please go to settings and change it.
Hi, my name is Ivo, and I love the wind!
I am an addicted kiter, helicopter and jet pilot, who seeks the wind, waves, METARs and powder snow almost constantly. Since programming is my passion I coded Windy just for fun as my pet project. My goal is to keep Windy small and fast, rather than not to destroy it by adding new features, and making is slow and big.
Yes it is terrain elevation.
No we do not display model elevation
No we do not adjust interpolated values to its terrain height (interpolation in between two model levels). @TZ did some coding in this field but not finished it yet.
We do not have ANY METEOROLOGISTS in Windy team which is shame (the one I would love to have in team is Swiss), therefore we lack a knowledge in this field. If you have suggestions how to interpolate model's parameters to terrain height, please let us know. Send us some formulas to use or some document how to do it please.
Looks like your connection to Windy Community was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
