Windy (also known as Windyty) is an extraordinary tool for weather forecast visualization. This fast, intuitive, detailed and most accurate weather app is trusted by professional pilots, paragliders, skydivers, kiters, surfers, boaters, fishermen, storm chasers and weather geeks, and even by governments, army staffs and rescue teams.

Whether you are tracking a tropical storm or potential severe weather, planning a trip, pursuing your favorite outdoor sport, or you just need to know if it will rain this weekend, Windy provides you with the most up-to-date weather forecast around.

The uniqueness of Windy lies in the fact that it brings you better quality information than the other weather apps’ pro-features, while our product is absolutely free and even without ads.

Powerful, smooth and fluid presentation makes weather forecasting a real pleasure!


Windy brings you all the world's leading weather forecasting models: global ECMWF and GFS, plus local NEMS and ICON (for Europe) and NAM (for the USA).

It can not be easier: Just compare all the available models at once and make better decisions!


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.

Nothing but praise!

Put simply, the best app in its class. A varied and useful set of tools and display options make this a go-to for me every day, particularly when heading out to sea. Go back only a few years and access a comparable resource would have been very expensive and not quick or intuitive.

The source model for each display is also easily found, allowing me to compare with other models (e.g. Met Office) for any differences and ultimately trust the data shown in the app.

I would be a little more reassured I knew what the business and sustainability model of the service is - I just don’t want it to go anywhere!

Dear Calbei,

thank You so much for your kind words. We're currently working a solution, that would make sure that Windy stays as it is. Quick, professional and without ads.

Very useful

I like the Windy weather app for my aviation student exploits gives accurate information in a clear format with detail to dive into. I use it with Met office and other info to build my weather picture and forecast for the day or week ahead. I’ve shared with many pals into other activities like biking / golf etc and they all find it useful

To be honest I don’t know why the Windy guys don’t just charge an app fee it’s good value as an interactive live feed forecast tool

Fantastic app

Use it a lot as a supplement and to aid situational awareness for aviation weather briefings. Extremely intuitive user interface, I find the cloud base and visibility layers most helpful. Especially being able to use it in the correct units corresponding to my personal flight minima! Allows me to make the go/no go decision flying light aircraft some times even a day or two in advance so I cancel previous plans and make alternatives in good time.
