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.

My new favorite weather app
This app is the best, Jerry! The BEST! I don’t know who came up with this but I want to be their friend.
I’ve been using the Ventusky website off and on for a while. The website is also awesome, but the app is a little more convenient. Watching it is almost hypnotic.
My only suggestion would be that it update in real time. But I wouldn’t deduct a star for that. This app is hella cool.
If you want a weather App with world wide wind, ocean waves and other weather related events on a global scale, this is it.
A very intuitive, and user friendly app that is not full of pesky ads. I use this several times a day and always marvel at the wind and wave illustrations. I love this app!
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!
