Using Windy.com

This video will show you how to use and features of the Windy.com site.

As a balloon pilot you know how important good weather information can be.  This site does a real good job of forecasting winds.  Not only on the surface  but aloft as well.  With a slider that allows you to go hour by hour it seems like a nice little bit windy.com.pngof technology to have on your phone tablet or even the desktop for looking at winds.  A new and very handy feature is the "Web Cameras"  When you select any location on the Windy map you will see a "Wind Staff" open up.  You can click on that staff and a details window will open at the bottom of the screen.  Over on the left side you will see (if available) a web camera.  Great for looking around your area to see if there is fog or rain or other issues you may want to be able to see without having to physically travel to that location.  Check it out!
