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.
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 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.
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 several numerical models. Besides the relatively 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.

Ratings and Reviews
So close to perfection
I have been waiting for a weather app like this for ages. One that combines slick animations with reliable data. However, i’m desperate for the developers to implement two key features. Firstly, the app desperately needs a quick way to change the forecast to the current date and time. I constantly find myself browsing the week ahead but then then there’s no way quick way to go back to the current forecast. Secondly, it would be incredible if there could be a little information bubble on the map (over the location selected) that displays nice large text with information about the metric selected on the map for the current date/time at that location. At the moment your eyes are forced to jump up and down to read the forecast at the bottom whilst viewing the visualisation on the map - Im aware that the map does have the relevant metric written at regular intervals on the map already, but the text is tiny and its often not written directly by the location selected.
Thank you for your review and suggestions. Your first problem is already solved in the app. You can click on the small button right next to play button above timeline - this button change time to current.
You can easily be better than Michael Fish with this.
Remember poor Michael who got the weather forecast wrong just before some of the most severe gale the UK had ever experienced? He should have used this App and then he would not have ended up remembered for one of the biggest blunders ever. I just love using weather Apps, they are terrific when deciding whether or not to go to my allotments, to know what weather you are facing on journeys or simply planning ahead. To be honest, I prefer using the Apps to media broadcasts. Ventusky is one of the best two I have - indeed in many respects, the best. I would echo other reviewers comments about keys for the colours....they are not essential to enjoy the App maps but would be a beneficial addition. If you have some background knowledge of weather, enjoy knowing and predicting it, this App for a meagre £2.99 is terrific value.
Thank you for your great review. I am glad to hear that. We are planning more features.
Excellent detailed forecasts
This is one of the best weather apps I have come across. It gives me all the detail required to make informed decisions on my outdoor activities. I run on trails most days so having good information is required for route planning and correct attire to match the weather. It is reliable never had any technical issues works every time. This app has all I need. Brilliant app I can find no fault.
After recent extremely cold winds it occurred to me that the one feature to make this perfect would be the addition of wind chill temperature. It is good to see how the developer is reading and taking note of feedback. That is why this app is the best weather app I have seen and such excellent value for money.
Thank you for your review. I am pleased to hear that! We are planning more features.
