When you do a search for wind, we offer you three great ways to view the data: LIVE WIND, Wind List and Wind Obs Map. (Note: LIVE WIND is not yet available on our mobile apps.) These three features share the same center point from your search (such as "Miami"), but otherwise they offer uniquely different perspectives:
1. Wind Obs Map
The weather stations are plotted on a traditional map, and this has been our go-to view for many years.
2. Wind List
Our Wind List feature is your ultimate quick-load wind reference tool. Wind List quickly tells you the top ranked weather stations in the area - for any search you do - anywhere in the world.
3. LIVE WIND
On our LIVE WIND page, we combine our popular Flow Map with the above-mentioned Wind Obs Map and Wind List. Viewing all three features on one page gives the user the keenest possible insight into the current wind conditions. The current forecast wind flow, and the critically important real-time weather data provided by the weather stations in both map & list formats. The basic Free version of LIVE WIND is available for all points on the globe, and is turned on by default. However, for the best view, we highly recommend LIVE WIND Plus, which is enhanced by the prescient power of the best weather models around - including our exclusive high-resolution WF-WRF forecast models.
WF-WRF NOTE: Our own WF-WRF Forecast model has distinct boundaries, which you can see when looking at our Live Wind feature. The WF-WRF model is our own in-house forecast model, which our own brainiacs have created. Forecast models are VERY expensive to run! As such, we have created grids for key regions across North America: the Forecast models run within those specific grid boundaries. With Plus Membership, or better, you get full access to our own WF-WRF forecast models -- giving you additional very high-quality predictive data not available anywhere else.
Disclaimer: Our Flow Map, and the animated Flow Map element within our LIVE WIND presentation, is an artistic representation of forecast wind speeds, based on forecast models. The animated Flow Map itself does not represent real, actual wind speed values. The weather station data points, which are plotted onto our LIVE WIND presentation, are actual wind readings from weather stations.
