While the holidays are now over, for most of us winter weather is here to stay. There’s nothing worse than making outdoor plans only to have them cancelled or postponed by rainy or snowy weather. While there are plenty of weather apps, sometimes such apps aren’t very reliable as they often give a general weather outlook versus the weather in your specific location.
If you’re planning a significant outdoor event such as a wedding or a party or you’re just fascinated by weather fronts, you should check out this cool site called Windy.com.
Windy.com provides a very detailed look at the weather patterns across the United States. You can view wind, rain, snow, and temperature changes from New York City to Los Angeles and everywhere in between.
Upon first visiting the site, you will see a large map of the United States but using the search bar at the top left corner of the page you can view weather patterns based on your location. You can also check out the radar, lightning, wind, rain, thunder, and temperature using the icons on the right-hand column.
For Mac users, you can zoom in and out on your keypad and then click on various cities throughout the country. Once you click on a specific city, you can view the weather forecast for that specific area up to 10 days out. The forecasts are also very detailed and can provide you with hourly temperature readings, rain gauges and even wind gusts.
For those international travelers, Windy also provides live weather readings for areas across the globe. You can finally book that dream vacation without worrying about what the weather may do. The site also provides up-to-date information on hurricanes, making it a vital tool for those of us who live in hurricane-prone areas.
