Ventusky: Weather Maps
By InMeteo, s.r.o.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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 three numerical models. Besides the relatively well-known data from the American GFS model, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world.

So much better than the website!
I am a loyal user of the website, which I use for sailing. Ventusky puts it all in one place: wind, gusts, thunderstorms, and waves. And the app makes it even better and faster. Excellent work!
This app is just great. The weather models are incredibly accurate and reliable. During my work this hurricane season (2017) we used Ventusky as our go to source for information while responding! Great app and info!
Great App but...
They need to change the color option so that wind speed background is legible in the darker shades. When the jet stream at 12K meters is displayed in a dark purple, the wind speed numbers are black and practically invisible.
