Finding forecast maps

Finding forecast maps on  Mobile app -OR-  Website

WeatherFlow apps give you the chance to view the same maps professional meteorologists use to forecast the weather. The Forecast Maps indicate the predicted wind speed and direction for an area by a meteorological model.  Each model has its strengths and weakness so the maps may differ. Meteorologists compare the maps to determine which solution seems most likely.
