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.

And well done. Quite comprehensive and detailed. Docked one star for something the developers probably have no control over....providing a sense of spatial perspective in the base map. Something as simple as major highways would be great. As it stands you get a few major cities on a zoomed out view and you need to imagine the rest as there is very little in the way of landmarks.
There is no way to get help or info on all this data and formats. I don’t understand all the choices and terms to know how to use it well there is no online place Togo for questions or suggestions. I would like for the maps to show US interstate highways too as an option
Great source of weather data, but app has some serious glitches - Map sometimes “freezes” and won’t allow switch to another location. The only way to get rid of it is to restart an app or entire device - Could not find how to select certain GEO coordinates and/or leave a permanent bookmark on the map
It does not show much no radar view. Just temp and wind at different altitudes. Terrible for seeing weather conditions. Just my FWI. Not worth $.01 cent.
Best weather app I know of. Wind speed is very important to me, and it is spot on.
Being a weather fanatic, this app is the best I’ve seen yet. Very informative at the many levels it the weather types!
Maybe I’m still missing something, but the one thing that would make it 5* for me is the ability to save a more visible location on the map, like you can on the web-site. It’s hard to narrow into the tiny dot, I prefer the more visible, clickable star.
Love it! Use it all the time to check flying weather.
Really like the potential. Would love to have smaller increments at altitude from 20 feet to 100 ft , not meters. Thanks
