@ascom Would love to see the bug report you file!
@TomSlavkovsky Now that the the NOAA has announced that the upgrade to the GFS model is live (https://www.noaa.gov/media-release/noaa-upgrades-us-global-weather-forecast-model), do the GFS forecasts in Windy reflect the upgrade?
The NOAA today announced a major upgrade to the GFS model: https://www.noaa.gov/media-release/noaa-upgrades-us-global-weather-forecast-model
The model now includes "a new dynamical core called the Finite-Volume Cubed-Sphere (FV3)." The NOAA believes this will result in a dramatic increase in accuracy, bringing the model's accuracy in line with or above that of other top models.
Does the GFS forecast in Windy already reflect the upgrades to GFS?
I don't believe the list of watches and warning is complete. They might still be displayed, but under a different category - e.g. thunderstorms. See an example of this issue here: https://community.windy.com/topic/7101/windy-is-experimenting-with-cap-alerts-weather-warnings/16
That said, I wouldn't trust Windy to accurately display warnings right now, particularly not for high risk events like tornadoes. See some of the issues I've noticed are listed here: https://community.windy.com/topic/7784/missing-cap-alerts

@kekert Also, here's an instance where the "type of danger" is incorrectly displayed:
@kekert Just wanted to point you toward a specific instance where CAP Alerts aren't updating properly in the US, leading to misleading situation on the map: https://community.windy.com/topic/7784/missing-cap-alerts
Looks like that alert might not be reflected in the map because the last update to the CAP Alerts was a long time ago:
But given their importance, if CAP Alerts cannot be/are not updated much more frequently, perhaps the user should be notified that they are out of date...
