SolentMet provides easy access to the data from four weather stations in the Solent area (the sea between the Isle of Wight and the UK mainland).
The data display corresponds to that shown on the ‘Chimet’ website and normally updates every five minutes.
A map displays the current wind direction and strength at the four stations and each can be selected to show all the latest data available from that station.
Further details in the form of 12-hour graphs of wind strength and direction, tide, temperatures and pressure, visibility, and wave height can be displayed (where available).
Bespoke support for iPad

Great app but...
...the pressure on Chimet is currently showing as 600mb. Is this the next iceage?? Can’t be right! There doesn’t appear to be a way of corresponding with the app designers from within the app hence this review...
Simplicity is the key!!!
Simple and easy, just what I need to see the wind speed and direction at a glance.
When you click on the wind arrow to get more data, if it showed the wind speed trends too that would be excellent.
Keep it simple
A simple excellent tool. Quick and easy to see wind speed and direction at a glance.
