@korina Cool. Any plans to show the United states radiation?

Dawn is Conspicuously Missing From The Forecast
on the forecast for a location, dusk is shown along with Sunrise and Sunset.
But dawn is conspicuously missing.
When planning a photo shoot, I often map out the weather at a location and it's usually the case I'm trying to catch first or last light.
It would be great if you could add dawn (nautical twilight.) It would save me from having to look it up elsewhere.
Suggestion: Maps Are Great But You Can't Use them For Hiking
I've been noticing that Windy's base map has amazing park trails.
Hiking and weather go hand-in-hand.
But when I use the app, i cannot get an updating location on where I am, so i can't take advantage of the cool map that's right before my eyes.
It would be great if I could zoom in and see myself on the trail and have it update in real time. Then, not only could I use that to help navigate, but with the radar layer on I could see approaching precipitation. A little arrow would be nice too, so I could see which way I was heading.
Seems like this would be a pretty straightforward improvement.
Hope you consider. This would give you a new way to promote your tool too. You could tout it as a tool to help you boat, hike, run, etc.
You'll notice here, that my position isn't on the map.
Note: I have given windy permission to use my exact location in the phones settings.
RE: Wind Chill
@jimerb Relative humidity is already available at https://www.windy.com/-Humidity-rh?rh,33.375,-22.220,3
yes but often sites compute a "real feel" temperature in much the same way as windchill.
80deg with 95% humidity feels hotter than 90 degrees with low humidity for example. The air's ability to evaporate sweat is inhibited because of the saturated air. So it feels hotter.
Ensembles or Spaghetti Plots
It would be really neat to see extreme weather Ensembles from the different predictive models for hurricanes.
I find it hard to find these and none have the savviness of Windy's visualization system.
Under the Extreme Forecast settings or maybe under the more layers down below (where the "pressure slider" is.
Suggestion: Aircraft in Flight
It would be really neat to be able to see aircraft in flight. Like a little icon next to the airports icon.
I would love to be able to visualize how aircraft are using wind and different elevations to save fuel. Sort of a commercial industries version of analyzing the weather.
How are they hugging the jet-stream? Are they avoiding strong head winds? How are they avoiding hurricanes?
Maybe a Turbulence layer?
There are probably other benefits for people who work in the Airline industry that I'm not thinking about.
And If you clicked on a plane it could tell you it's expected arrival time. Helpful for Livery services to help paint a full picture of possible delays in turbulent weather.
RE: Wind Chill - Update
It would be neat if it also calculated a "real feel" for the summer that factored in the humidity and wind to give an indication of evaporation cooling.
Very humid areas feel hotter than warm dry areas for example.
This way the data wouldn't be useless half the year when it's warm out.
RE: Dawn is Conspicuously Missing From The Forecast
@gkikas-lgpz I'm using this on a tablet mainly. And since plugins have to be reloaded each time, it would take me longer to load and search then just look elsewhere.
Also, the "sweet spot" within both nautical twilight's are very brief and every minute counts. I have to get into position and setup equipment ahead of time. I need precise times to maximize shooting (and sleep time lol.)
Suggestion: Hurricane Ensembles
You've got a great hurricane tracker now that has a the flexibility to show different models.
It would be great if one of those models were ensemble's or Spaghetti plots from different simulations.
I find it difficult to get a good source for those, especially layered into other aspects of weather like pressure, sea temp, etc..
