@Korina From the Netherlands I most use models ECMWF and UKM, supported by ICOM.

RE: Understanding the Compare Forecast Feature in Windy.com
RE: Be one step ahead with the advanced features of Windy Premium! [EN]
I like the new satellite archive feature. But I have some tips for users.
Per day only 24 images are presented (1hr resolution). The 'smooth animation' routine has some troubles generating a nice flawless motion picture. So I recommend to turn to feature off while using the archive, or stop animation and use cursor keys to go back and forth 1 hour.
RE: Precipitation prediction and visualization
@Korina Hi Korina, that's not really my point. My issue is that the values on the map don't correspond with the values in the forecast, when using 1h forecast steps (Premium).
The map always shows 3h values. Indeed, if I switch to 3-hourly forecast, then you're right: the values only differ slightly. But in 1h forecast thet may differ by a big amount.
It would be nice if I switch the forecast from 3h to 1h, then the map also switches to 1h precipitation display.
Precipitation prediction and visualization
Next a screenshot regarding Rain, Thunder for Utrecht, NL at 0h Dec 7:
I'm using 1h steps in map and forecast. On the map you see 3.8mm and in the forecast 0.6mm. Ik looks like the map shows the forecasted precipitation of the last 3 hours before 0h.
Unlike other websites, this behaviour makes precipitation areas make much more intensive and extended. A few hours later for example (2h 7 Dec):
Forecast 0mm, but shown on map still 0.7mm, though it's forecasted dry for 2 hours!
It seems to me that map display and forecast should correspond, as they do for all other weather elements.
RE: Windy.com brings high visibility satellite layer
Nice enhancement! It looks like a smart combination of Infra and Visible. This is like the 'classical view' some other websites offer, but much much better! Using the smooth animation it's even more impressive.
