I came to the forums searching for the way to do this. Because it's such a basic function, I thought I just had to be missing something. Had there not been this thread, I would be making the request. (I would also ask to be able to save a zoomed view as the initial area of coverage.)
I am a ham radio operator and a registered NWS weather spotter volunteer here in the mountains of Colorado. While the wind information is helpful, flash floods and hail are the largest dangers, and radar is essential for tracking the fast-moving storms that produce them. Lightning-strike information helps us to determine if outdoor antenna disconnection may becone necessary, and make arrangements for alternate communications.
If the devs would like to stay true to the "Windy" name, why not open the app to the wind page, and then go to the user's desired startup view after a 3-second delay?
Thanks for your consideration.
