About Ventusky: Weather Maps

Developer 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. Two models, EURAD and USRAD, are based on current radar and satellite readings. These models are able to show precisely current precipitation in US and Europe. 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?

App Reviews

  • Incredibly valuable

    By wmonte
    As a private pilot, I love this app. It gives an incredibly valuable overview of how the air is moving, and how it’s expected to change. The visual display gives you an intuitive sense that’s hard to get any other way. It also shows details, like patches of winds you might not anticipate from a Surface Analysis, METARs, TAFs, or winds aloft. Other layers like temps, air pressure, Thunderstorms and freezing levels also help build your understanding of the day’s conditions. And it’s fun to look at big picture stuff all around the world. Two minor complaints: Value numbers can be impossible to read against dark colored areas like storms, and don’t increase in size when you zoom in. Wind streak lines are a bit short. I’d like to see more custom display settings like on the web version.
  • 2 stars to 3 stars

    By QultyMttrs
    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.
  • Pretty solid - Could be improved

    By Phil - Texas
    To start off, I’ll say that I like the app. I’m a pilot, so having some detailed information about the weather is something I usually keep in my pocket and this app does that well. For US users, it could be improved. For winds aloft, it would be nice to choose statue mph and nautical mph. For US users, it would be nice to have state outlines in the map. As it is, it’s a challenge to get a big picture of weather systems because as you zoom out to see each system, you lose reference to the specific geographic location. Having state outlines would be very helpful. For US users, and this is probably my #1 issue with the app, is having the winds aloft being presented in meters. Changing the unit in the settings does not change the winds aloft in the map. You have to choose 3500 meters if you want to see what the winds are like around 11,500 ft. Very annoying. But it’s a great app and I hope they improve it. I’d like to be able to recommend it to other pilots. 4 stars from me. iPhone X / IOS 11.4.1 / runs well
  • A fun weather app that lets you see the big picture.

    By PaplooTheLearned
    If you are familiar with website, this is a more iOS friendly presentation that performs much better on my iPad. If you aren’t familiar with the website, go give it a try so you know what it is, and then come back and buy the app. Only real improvements would be to have tide and wave height information (and sunrise/set and moon phase info in the weather bar if you want to go all out). [Edit: Accidentally found the screen with detailed sun and moon data, so it was there, I just didn’t realize how to get to it—upgraded rating to 5 stars]
  • Help us snow machine riders

    By j016042
    I have used your web site for snowmachine (yes it’s snowmachine not snowmobile in Alaska) info for years. (Cloud cover and precipitation amount for visibility) it has been very helpful as cloud cover can vary from one mountain pass to the one next door. The problem is it’s hard to judge which pass your looking at with the blank background. If you could add a satellite overlay (or underlay maybe?) that would be amazing and make this the #1 weather app I believe. Maybe add a simple forecast page also for those who don’t want to spend the time.
  • Broken

    By Rubidium
    Been using the Ventusky web site for a while now, and love to look at the weather patterns that are so beautifully rendered there. I was happy to see that there is now an app for iPhone. This is THE weather app for accurate, richly rendered weather maps. I also love that I can touch my location and this opens a menu where I can see animations of the sun- and moonrise. This is now my go-to weather app!
  • Love this app and the website!

    By Lady Pepperell
    I used the Ventusky website to track recent hurricanes. It was much more accurate than the Weather Channel without all the annoying drama and ads. This app and the website are beautiful and meditative data visualizations. Both provide a whole-earth view of the weather with fascinating comparative detail. Very glad I purchased the app. A few minor things for developers: 1) please provide a key to color in the app. 2) please provide either in-app explanations of weather terms or a link to a site with the definitions. 3) a week and/or month view with symbols would be nice. 4) default to US measurement based on location would be nice. Thanks for the great app & website! Fantastic work!
  • Best weather app!

    By DesertRain102938
    I’ve used the website for a couple years and finally got the app for my phone! This has been more accurate than any other weather apps out there! Love it! Great interface & the info is pretty darn close to what my weather stations indicate. I use this for wind speeds when traveling, planning a fishing trip! Very dependable!!
  • Great App but...

    By draver
    They need to change the color option so that wind speed background is legible in the darker shades. When the jet stream at 12K meters is displayed in a dark purple, the wind speed numbers are black and practically invisible. I posted this a while back, and they fixed it to show numbers in white on dark background. Great Job!
