Ratings and Reviews
Better than most
This app provides actual maps of wind direction including changes that occur near the coast and throughout the state. It is always difficult to determine beach conditions, when most weather apps give a direction only. This app shows the actual direction on a map. I can tell, if there will be a sea breeze or land breeze during the day. There may be a breeze out of the south, but the nuances along the coast are different depending on the actual location. First app I check for expected wind direction.
Developer Response ,
The forecasts are updated 4 times per day. "Real-time" is meant in regards to report data from weather stations. Check if you have some weatehr stations around you. The real-time measurements from those stations is very helpful to get an impression of the actual weather situation around you. If you have further feedback, questions or need assistance, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
About 80% accurate
The information is very well put together, easy to understand and be able to see the forecast via a quick glance. Don’t feel like I need a degree in meteorology to read the app like most of the other wind apps out there.
However, the forecasts are about 80% at best. Sometimes if you’re watching the weather for a certain day, the wind and temperature forecast can change dramatically from day to day. One day it might say 78 degress but within twelve hours the forecast will change and show 69 deg. Then twelve hours later it reads 77....😖🤷🏼♂️
I am a landscaper in an area known for spotty downpours. Windfinders accuracy with tracking rain has been a big help. I can always expect rain on the hour they say it will hit. We are also prone for hurricanes and their residual effects even if they don’t hit us. Twice this past year our local weathermen were telling us we were going to get slammed with hurricane conditions yet windfinder showed minimal effects..... and windfinder was right. Thanks for being on track!
