Windy: One of the Best Weather Tools on the Internet

Windy: One of the best weather tools on the internetWindy was launched by a Swiss man named Ivo. He describes himself as an addicted kiter, helicopter and jet pilot who seeks the wind, waves, METARs, and powder snow almost constantly. Since programming is his passion, he coded the website (at the time called Windyty) in 2014. He says the original version was inspired by products of Swiss company Meteoblue and another project called “Earth” that displayed animated wind particles on the globe.

Since then, Ivo has completely rewritten the open source codes of “Earth” and arranged an agreement with Meteoble. The result is one of the best and most comprehensive weather tools on the internet. Windy has a beautiful interface and many layers, all representing dynamic atmospheric and weather conditions.
