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.

Really good display of data. Would it be possible to get lows, highs and weather fronts as a layer option?
This is the app I have been looking for. Something to show me the more detailed aspects of the weather. The interface is good and the rending of the layers is crisp and fast. The recent addition of the widget is welcome as well. However, the said widget has one bug. When there is a high wind warning it displays the wind gusts out to a insane number of decimal places. I’m sure this will be addressed soon and I am looking forward to more layers and functionality in the future. This could very well become a best seller weather app for those wanting more than just your basic type weather app!
App serves most functions I want to see in a weather app but is missing key features of nearly all other competing weather applications. First we really need to address the fact that there needs to be adjustable opacity for any layers currently enabled. With that accomplished the second major feature needing to be added is map layers that are visible and not only when zoomed in. Standard features are typically Street, Satellite, and Terrain views occasionally coming in optional if at all. I think having Terrain view would be applicable to backcountry travel. This would assist in your abilities to read a weather system.
What is all the hype? This app has potential but it doesn’t have it now. The map is a hodgepodge of thousands of numbers that have virtually no reference to any but one location. There are zero state or country boundaries, practically zero city names. The U.S. has 7 cities identified on the map. If you want to know the data on any other point you are guessing. The updates have made this app a joke are you shitting me! This app doesn’t even deserve 1 star
Tells you everything you need to know.
Improve the rain chance. Also i do live in middle east and there’s a lot of dust going here and i could not find icon about dust.
This is by far the best weather app with the most unique features of any weather app as well. Most other apps have all the same features but this one is unlike any other. My only complaint of feature I would like to see is additional map layers. Like a standard google street map. Many times I have difficulty figuring out where things are when the map is zoomed in and I can’t make out any of the geographic borders you can see when zoomed out. So please add an map layer that shows the streets or a more detailed map view so it’s easier to reference points on the map other than my location.
I love this app. Not only is it fun to play with, but living in Florida it has been so reliable. Especially during hurricane season!
Great but no wave info for Great Lakes!
