Ratings and Reviews
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!
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....😖🤷🏼♂️
Everything you need to plan a sail one place
Just fantastic to have wind, waves, weather and most importantly TIDE all on a single line in hourly format. I set favorites at the Golden Gate, Angle Island and my home base a in Pt Richmond and I get a picture of wind tide and current by swiping through those three. Adds a huge element of confidence and safety to sailing and paddling on the Bay. Simply the best app for Bay Area sailors and boaters. I support the apps I use that just plain work. Windfinder got my contribution.
