ventusky is a website of the Czech Meteorological Society inMeteo, which shows weather conditions, temperatures, wind, precipitation, air pressure and many other data animated in real time with its website. Data can be called up worldwide - from any place on earth for any place on earth. Ventusky is made up of the word Ventus (Latin for "wind") and Sky (English for "sky"). Ventusky not only shows the wind, but the entire weather - so that you not only have a forecast, but also understand the meteorological relationships.
Update 8. March 2018: Ventusky is there now also as a mobile app!
Chapter in this post:
Ventusky for iPhone, iPad, Android devices and more
Ventusky works on a desktop PC, Mac, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro and so on as well as on iOS devices such as iPhone and iPad and Android smartphones and tablets. Whether you get along better with the vertical or horizontal view is certainly a matter of taste. The Ventusky website was designed in such a way that it is easier to use mobile than on large monitors.
Individual data, information and the weather forecast
Including the current day, Ventusky can provide weather forecasts for a total of 10 days. The weather maps for the current day and time are also interesting. The following information can be called up at Ventusky with a mouse click or touch on the screen: temperature, precipitation, cloud cover, wind and gusts of wind, air pressure, thunderstorms, snow cover and the zero degree limit. But not only for us landlubbers. Anyone who is out at sea, planning an excursion by ship or a sailing trip can call up this as well as the current (or upcoming) waves and wave strengths at Ventusky.
(Update 2018) Ventusky App for iOS and Android
InMeteo now also has a Ventusky weather mapApp, which you can download to your mobile iOS or Android device. You can view weather data from temperatures and precipitation to wind speeds and cloud cover, air pressure and thunderstorm zones, adapted directly to your iPhone. The app is even optimized for display under iOS 11 on the iPhone X. The only disadvantage compared to the website, which you can still use as a web app: the iOS app costs EUR 3,49. If you have an Android device, you can find the Google Play Store the download of the corresponding application with in-app purchases.
