Windyty Is An Interactive Weather And Wind Map With Very Precise Data

Windyty Is An Interactive Weather And Wind Map With Very Precise Data

Windyty is a gorgeous weather map that is overlaid with current temperature conditions and wind patterns, and can be customised to show as much or as little weather information as you deem necessary. You can add cloud cover and precipitation, and there’s even an Android app to take it all with you on the go.

Last week we highlighted Ventusky, a similar service, but Windyty came first, and has a very similar look and feel. Windyty actually offers even more information, as well as a draggable pinpoint element that will show you conditions at a certain point on the map, a detailed local forecast for that point (including future conditions, precipitation maps and temperature gradients) in a slide-out sidebar and even webcams and weather stations in the vicinity of your pinpoint.

If you want to see what the weather is like in a different location, just drag the pinpoint to another spot on the map, or search using the text bar in the upper left. At any point you can add layers for more information, remove them for a clearer picture or change the measurement altitude so you can see what the temperature, wind and atmospheric pressure are at different points in the air. Plus, if you like the experience, you can download the free Windyty app for Android to get all of those features on your mobile device. Hit the link below to try it out.
