Description

Windy Lookout's main function is to work as an early alert system for recreational users of Utah Lake. Its purpose and goal is 3 fold: Detection, Alert and Safety.

Current weather conditions and forecasts are readily available through many free services. As many recreational users of Utah Lake will tell you, the problem arises when unpredictable sudden weather changes happen on the lake. For the sailing community, it is especially important to beware of potentially dangerous high wind speeds. Not only will these create rough conditions on the lake but if you are caught unprepared, the winds can knock down sailboats.

Windy Lookout analyzes and processes many current wind conditions beyond the perimeter of the lake to give users an early alert should a dangerous wind arise. We process this information in real-time to give users an alert allowing them to make the necessary decisions to stay safe in the minutes before the wind hits.

What’s New

Version 1.9

In this update Windy Lookout has received some performance and security updates.

I have been on Utah lake when the winds have come up. It is not all that fun. One thing I find helpful is that I don’t live real close to the lake and sometimes the wind seems calm at my house. Now I can know if it is too windy to hit the lake before I leave home. I would like to see a place to set the times when I get alerts. I don’t necessarily need the alerts in the middle of the night. I think this is a very helpful app.

We appreciate the feedback! While mobile notifications are only sent when you are subscribed on the "Map" page. If you register for text notifications, text notifications are sent out every-time there is an alert. We have added this feature to our development board. We hope to be able to implement this into a future release to allow more customization on Text alerts. Currently you can unsubscribe and resubscribe for texts alerts in the app, however it isn't as easy as the mobile notifications. We will also try to make this easier in a future release.

I believe this app will help me stay safe while on the Utah Lake. Although I have not had a chance to use it it yet. I sure it will be beneficial.

Just a thought you should dial in on places where people actually launch boats. For example Lincoln Beach etc.

Thanks again to the developer. This will save lives!!

Thank you for the suggestion! We are always looking to pull in more weather stations. We will keep an eye out to see if we can find something closer to Lincoln Beach and the other boat launching areas.

Amazing app

We have never had a reliable wind source app while boating on Utah lake until now. This app is amazing and should be used by all boaters. I believe it can, and will save lives. Thank you!!
