Description

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. WIND ANIMATION 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 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. WEATHER MODELS 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 the most accurate numerical models. Besides the 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. LIST OF WEATHER LAYERS • Temperature (15 levels) • Wind (16 levels) • Wind gusts • Precipitation (1 hour, 3 hour, long time accumulation) • Cloud cover (high, middle, low, total) • Snow cover • Humidity • Dew point • Air pressure • CAPE, CIN, LI, Helicity (SRH) • Freezing level • Wave forecast Do you have questions or suggestions?

    So I ponied up and bought this app. It is raining where I am for the second day in a row and this app shows nothing. Weather bug showed a huge system, Ventusky showed nothing. I love weather and I am a sailor so I thought this would be a decent enough replacement for Storm when after they tooketh away. I am still hopeful though.

    When I initially wrote this review I got this app because of the detail you can see with it on an hourly time frame. At the time of writing my initial review I rated 2 stars because after an update the 1 hour time frame was not an option anymore. Now the 1 hour time frame is back as an option so I will bump it 3 stars. My reasoning is even though the 1 hour is an option as it moves through each 1 hour time frame on a majority of them the weather doesn’t change at all until every 3rd 1 hour time frame frame. Also because of the developer response I got from my initial 2 star review stating that the 1 hour time frame being removed as an option was not true. I had the app open in front of my very eyes, searched through numerous settings to try to find the 1 hour time frame that was not showing anymore.

    Hi, Just downloaded; for US Eastern Daylight time, it correctly shows UTC +4. However, the app icon shows the moon (night) from 6 pm on. Sunset is in fact about 9 pm locally. Thanks!

    Traveling, finally want to use this app. Nope, crashes... why pay for it when they can’t keep it up to date? iOS 11.4
  • No astronomical data displayed

    This is a potentially very good app for weather. Well designed and presented, but—sun and moon data blocks are blank. There is nothing I can discover to get these displays to work. So three star rating until I can get the app to actually work.
  • Best Weather App

    I have been able to locate some Tropical Storms with this app and predict storm intensity in the Midwest. I would like to say, why is this not #1 in Weather Apps. This app is to die for!
  • Nice interface
