Ventusky: Weather Maps App Description

The app combines highly accurate weather forecast for your location with a map showing development of weather in a broader area in a very interesting way. This allows you to see where precipitation is going to come from or where the wind is blowing from. The uniqueness of the app comes from the amount of data displayed. Forecast of weather, precipitation, wind, cloud cover, atmospheric pressure, snow cover and other meteorological data for different altitudes is available for the whole world. WIND ANIMATION The Ventusky application solves weather displaying in an interesting way. Wind is displayed using streamlines which clearly portray the continuous development of weather. Airflow on Earth is always in motion and the streamlines depict this motion in an amazing way. This makes the interconnection of all atmospheric phenomena obvious. WEATHER FORECAST Weather forecast for the first three days is available in the app in one-hour steps. For other days, it’s available in three-hour steps. Users can also look up sunrise and sunrise times in a given place. WEATHER MODELS Thanks to the Ventusky application, visitors get data directly from the numerical models that, just a few years ago, were used solely by meteorologists. The app collects data from the most accurate numerical models. Besides the well-known data from the American GFS and HRRR models, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German COSMO and particular ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world. Two models, EURAD and USRAD, are based on current radar and satellite readings. These models are able to show precisely current precipitation in US and Europe. LIST OF WEATHER LAYERS • Temperature (15 levels) • Wind (16 levels) • Wind gusts • Precipitation (1 hour, 3 hour, long time accumulation) • Cloud cover (high, middle, low, total) • Snow cover • Humidity • Dew point • Air pressure • CAPE, CIN, LI, Helicity (SRH) • Freezing level • Wave forecast Do you have questions or suggestions?

    Been using the Ventusky web site for a while now, and love to look at the weather patterns that are so beautifully rendered there. I was happy to see that there is now an app for iPhone. This is THE weather app for accurate, richly rendered weather maps. I also love that I can touch my location and this opens a menu where I can see animations of the sun- and moonrise. This is now my go-to weather app!
  • Accuracy

    Since I’ve been using this app it’s been very accurate with temp, wind speed and direction. Precipitation has also been accurate. Having the ability to change weather models is also a great feature.
  • Very Good

    Really good display of data. Would it be possible to get lows, highs and weather fronts as a layer option?
  • Just what I was looking for!

    This is the app I have been looking for. Something to show me the more detailed aspects of the weather. The interface is good and the rending of the layers is crisp and fast. The recent addition of the widget is welcome as well. However, the said widget has one bug. When there is a high wind warning it displays the wind gusts out to a insane number of decimal places. I’m sure this will be addressed soon and I am looking forward to more layers and functionality in the future. This could very well become a best seller weather app for those wanting more than just your basic type weather app!
  • Great app with solid potential.

    App serves most functions I want to see in a weather app but is missing key features of nearly all other competing weather applications. First we really need to address the fact that there needs to be adjustable opacity for any layers currently enabled. With that accomplished the second major feature needing to be added is map layers that are visible and not only when zoomed in. Standard features are typically Street, Satellite, and Terrain views occasionally coming in optional if at all. I think having Terrain view would be applicable to backcountry travel. This would assist in your abilities to read a weather system.
  • What?!

    What is all the hype? This app has potential but it doesn’t have it now. The map is a hodgepodge of thousands of numbers that have virtually no reference to any but one location. There are zero state or country boundaries, practically zero city names. The U.S. has 7 cities identified on the map. If you want to know the data on any other point you are guessing. The updates have made this app a joke are you shitting me! This app doesn’t even deserve 1 star
