36 DIFFERENT WEATHER LAYERS
From wind, rain, temperature, humidity, and pressure to swell or CAPE index, with Windy you will have all convenient weather layers just at your fingertips.
Windy lets you display observed wind and temperature, forecasted weather, airports around the World, paragliding spots, kiting and surfing spots or nearby webcams right on the map.
For any location on the map you can display the following detailed weather information:
• Basic forecast – temperature, rain and snow accumulation, wind speed, wind gusts and wind direction
• Wind forecast – comparing weather models at once
• Meteogram – temperature and dew point, wind speed and wind gusts, pressure, precipitation, altitude cloud cover, cloud base
• Airgram – wind barbs, temperature and cloud cover in different altitudes
• Waves forecast – wind direction, wind speed and wind gusts, wave direction and wave height, swell direction and swell height, swell period
For any place on Earth, you can set an alert for your 'desired weather.' These alerts consider a number of weather conditions: wind, waves, rain, new snow, temperature, clouds, time/duration and forecast model settings.
Available for the USA (including Hawaii and coastal parts of Alaska), South Korea and a couple of islands in the North Pacific Ocean and in the Caribbean.

Ratings and Reviews
The best weather app out there
I was a huge fan of Storm from WeatherUnderground and hadn't checked out the other options recently, but when The Weather Channel killed Storm and replaced it with a mediocre weather channel version I had a look at the other options and was very happy to find Windy. It's so much much better than the others, let me count (a few of) the ways: You can pick your forecast model! And then compare the different models to see where they differ! That to me is a game changer. The timeline along the bottom is so great to see how pressure and fronts will move - I feel like I've learned a lot just by using the app. The many layer options are great - set it for what you want to see and don't be distracted by what you don't. And of course the wind animation options make for a visually appealing interface. Seeing how the different altitude winds are moving and changing is so useful and interesting. I'd gladly pay money for this app, there are just so many great things to say about it. And if all you want is a sun, a cloud, or an umbrella for where you live that's there for you too. I was bummed when Storm was killed off but am so happy to have found this great app.
This app is the example by which all other statistical apps should be judged. The info is from a huge number of sources and accurate. Historical data is available for multiple forecasts and aviation wx is available as well.
I remember the disappointment many of us felt after losing the old Storm app. Well look no further because this app not only meets, but far exceeds it by light years.
I’m a person who can appreciate outstanding graphical design and messaging, whether for an app or PowerPoint slide. The individual(s) who designed this have an excellent understanding of visual messaging.
I’ve found a few issues for improvement: recommend making the settings icon the universal gear icon; sometimes the app displays Celsius even when Fh is selected, and to allow favoriting from within forecasts (ie selecting an airport from the map doesn’t allow favoriting, it must be typed in.). Of course YMMV as I’m still learning the navigation, but this is truly an app that drives informative engagement.
Use it all the time for long distance cruise planning as well as for local fishing trips
I have weather XM subscription on my Garmin chart plotter, but it only gets me a wind view out 3 days. Windy gives me an outlook on wind and swell direction as far as a week out. I find this invaluable for our summer cruising in the Bahamas. It allows me to line up wind and waves to best suit my boat and allows me to give my passengers a better ride on passages. Together with Weather XM and internet weather reports, I can minimize bad weather experiences for my guests (and wife) so they will want to come back again and again! I use Windy more than any of the others mentioned because it’s so handy and can be taken easily from boat to boat. Wherever I carry my phone (which is everywhere) I can get wind and sea conditions. If you’re a boater, you will love this app.
