Prior to the recent "new and improved" upgrade in the weather radar, the Windy.com site left a ghost image of the last image of the loop each time it cycled. This is a very good feature that allows you to accurately visualize the exact track of rain cells. This feature still works on my Android App but no longer works when I access Windy on my PC. If this feature was removed from the PC version, it should be brought back. If it is a PC related setting that changed, please tell me how to turn it back on!

Ghost Image Missing on Weather Radar
Real Time Lightning Strikes
Windy.com is, by far, the best weather app I have seen. There is a ton of information for any user, regardless of his/her level of knowledge of weather. One way the app could be made even better is to incorporate real time lightning strike information. In the USA, many outdoor sporting events are now making use of the Weatherbug app which has a lightning strike function that pinpoints strikes relative to the user's location. This is vital information that allows for intelligent decisions regarding the interruption of events in the interest of safety when thunderstorms threaten. In some states, sanctioning organizations now require that a lightning strike locator be on site at any event where thunderstorms can be a factor. Judging from the level of sophistication present in the Windy app, the Windy engineers could certainly come up with a lightning strike locator that would knock Weatherbug to the side!
