Windy - Wind, Waves, and Hurricanes Forecast

Screenshot_10.png

Hello MIUIers, a few month ago my country have an extreme weather. There are some places in Indonesia that have -5 ⁰C (Indonesia is a tropical country). From the information that I know it’s because aphelion phenomenon. Is your country have an extreme weather like me too? If yes, it makes you difficult to do an outdoor activities because the weather is extreme right? For people who love traveling or doing some outdoor sport I recomend using Windy (also known as Windyty). This app gives you information about a potential severe weather. Windy provides you with the most up-to-date weather forecast around. Windy is available to use in USA, Hawaii, Alaska and South Korea too. Windy is available on Playstore for free and belongs to Editor Choices.

Review

1. First Look
When you open Windy at the first time, it will automatically open with wind information of your current location but you can set the first information you want to know (I was explained on below). At the bottom of the application (the rainbow bar) it show you the wind intensity. Getting to the right (yellow or purple colour) it means that the wind intensity is stronger at that place.

2. Menu
Windy have a few menus like Login, Location and Weather Radar. You can choose the weather radar in accordance with the desired weather information like wind, rain, snow, temperature, clouds, and waves.

3. Features
  • Basic Information

The basic  information when you search location that you want to know on Windy is about temperature, rain intensity, wind gusts and wind direction.
  • Wind →  show the average wind speed 10 meters above the surface. Wind influenced by many factors, like mountains, cities, clouds, and thermal effect
  • Wind Gusts → show the wind gust 10 meters above the surface at last 3 hours. Every model of Forecast Provider has a different method of Wind Gusts computation.
  • Wind Direction → show the direction of the wind. Wind direction and speed is actually useful for people who fly dorne.

  • Advanced Information

If you like paragliding better to know the airgram. Windy gives detailed information about meteogram, airgram, and waves. At the graphic information below displayed the detailed wind direction per hour. The lighter color meaning the slower the wind speed and the deeper (the purple) meaning the faster the wind.

  • Display on Map

This feature makes you choose the information you want to show up when you open Windy at the first time. The default configuration is Reported Wind, you can choose Reported temp, Forecasted weather, Airports (show you a lot of airport around the world), Paragliding spots, Kite/WS spots, Webcams, Tide forecast or you choose empty map.

  • Forecast Model

On Forecast Model you will get information about the forecast time update and the average of the wind speed. You can choose what Provider Forecast Model do you need by changing the ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts) or GFS (Global Forecast System).

There is a lot of Weather Forecast Application on Playstore, but I think Windy is the most completed Weather Forecast for people who love outdoor activity. How about you, MIUIers? Are you interesting with this app?

Pros & Cons

1. Pros
  • Editor Choices
  • Simple and easy to use.
  • No more ads.
  • Good summary.
  • Accurate weather forecast with a lot of weather condition.
  • Detailed weather information

2. Cons
  • The UI is not eye catching


Conclusion

Voila, I think Windy is best weather forecast. Windy have a detailed UI and simple setting. You can get a lot of weather information with only one app on your phone. Windy claimed that Windy most accurate weather app and trusted by professional pilots, para-gliders, skydivers, kiters, surfers, boaters, fishermen, storm chasers and weather geeks, and even by governments, army staffs and rescue teams. As long as I use Windy, they give me an accuracy of the information. Windy gives me detailed information than the government of my country.  Windy does not have premium version, it is free with no more add but they gives us a lot of benefit.
