Description

The app combines highly accurate weather forecast for your location with a map showing development of weather in a broader area in a very interesting way. This allows you to see where precipitation is going to come from or where the wind is blowing from. The uniqueness of the app comes from the amount of data displayed. Forecast of weather, precipitation, wind, cloud cover, atmospheric pressure, snow cover and other meteorological data for different altitudes is available for the whole world. WIND ANIMATION The Ventusky application solves weather displaying in an interesting way. Wind is displayed using streamlines which clearly portray the continuous development of weather. Airflow on Earth is always in motion and the streamlines depict this motion in an amazing way. This makes the interconnection of all atmospheric phenomena obvious. WEATHER FORECAST Weather forecast for the first three days is available in the app in one-hour steps. For other days, it’s available in three-hour steps. Users can also look up sunrise and sunrise times in a given place. WEATHER MODELS Thanks to the Ventusky application, visitors get data directly from the numerical models that, just a few years ago, were used solely by meteorologists. The app collects data from the most accurate numerical models. Besides the well-known data from the American GFS and HRRR models, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German COSMO and particular ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world. Two models, EURAD and USRAD, are based on current radar and satellite readings. These models are able to show precisely current precipitation in US and Europe. LIST OF WEATHER LAYERS • Temperature (15 levels) • Wind (16 levels) • Wind gusts • Precipitation (1 hour, 3 hour, long time accumulation) • Radar • Cloud cover (high, middle, low, total) • Snow cover • Humidity • Dew point • Air pressure • CAPE, CIN, LI, Helicity (SRH) • Freezing level • Wave forecast Do you have questions or suggestions?

Enjoyable weather app

I think this is a fun weather app to use. I wish you could keep seeing the state boundaries when you zoom out further. At some point they disappear. I like to watch the weather out west from where I live but when you zoom out to see all the boundaries disappear and it’s harder to gauge weather in context. Overall it’s a well designed app for weather information and fun to use. Great work.

Love the functionality being added, but my favorite feature is the gorgeous macro views. Perfect for hurricane watches.

Occasionally fails to open or download

App fails to open and down about 10% of the time. Forecast doesn’t run out beyond three or four days. Still much better than Weather Underground.

Wonderful in depth weather app.

The app gives you access to a ton of great “drill down” metrics. Great for storm chasers too. If I were to improve it, adding real time frontal boundaries, something deleted from most weather apps in the last year, would be a huge benefit if there is still access to the data link for those metrics??? Highly recommend this app as a Meteorologist of over 25 years. 😁
