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 three numerical models. Besides the relatively well-known data from the American GFS model, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world. LIST OF WEATHER LAYERS • Temperature (13 levels) • Wind (13 levels) • Wind gusts • Precipitation (1 hour, 3 hour, long time accumulation) • Cloud cover • Snow cover • Air pressure • CAPE, CIN, LI, Helicity (SRH) • Freezing level • Wave forecast Do you have questions or suggestions?

    As a private pilot, I love this app. It gives an incredibly valuable overview of how the air is moving, and how it’s expected to change. The visual display gives you an intuitive sense that’s hard to get any other way. It also shows details, like patches of winds you might not anticipate from a Surface Analysis, METARs, TAFs, or winds aloft. Other layers like temps, air pressure, Thunderstorms and freezing levels also help build your understanding of the day’s conditions. And it’s fun to look at big picture stuff all around the world. Two minor complaints: Value numbers can be impossible to read against dark colored areas like storms, and don’t increase in size when you zoom in. Wind streak lines are a bit short. I’d like to see more custom display settings like on the web version.

    Similar to the web version, it would be quite nice to display a legend for the colors. Also very nice would be to add more detail elements to the base layer (e.g. roads, more cities). Thank you for a very useful ap.

    None even come close to this app, it’s the best by far. Only wish the cloud layer/imagery was higher resolution - should be an easy improvement to make.

    If you want a weather App with world wide wind, ocean waves and other weather related events on a global scale, this is it. A very intuitive, and user friendly app that is not full of pesky ads. I use this several times a day and always marvel at the wind and wave illustrations. I love this app!
  • Fantastic!
