Ventusky Weather Maps


Recommended Posts

I came across this website a few days back, and it's predictions are quite accurate, even for the following day. It's an interactive weather map, which allows you to choose which kind of map you want to see. Obviously us astronomers want to see the cloud maps. The good thing about these are it will give you the predicted percentage of cloud at your location, at any given time, just by hovering your mouse over the location. The site will predict weather up to 8 days in advance by selecting a day in the calendar, it also predicts on an hourly basis. Definitely as good, if not better than CO, or Wundermap.

I’ve just put the app onto my iphone and ipad. Allow it to use your current location whilst using the app and the click the search button. Your location is set as a favourite but you can’t click on it. However I clicked edit and an on-off slider appears next to your location. Set it on, the app crashes and on reopening it is active.

Click the search button again and then select your location.

It instantly highlights your location and works brilliantly.

 

Cost in UK is £3.99 but initially looks well worth it.

I've noticed when you open it up on a browser, it always opens on Tuesday's date in the calendar. Could catch out people if they are unaware of this.
