Could someone try and explain to me how this wind map works? Thanks
These are actually a bit more simple to read than you may think.
The direction the “arm” (Super long line) is pointing is where the wind is coming from in a True Heading. So from your picture, most of the wind here is coming from the South. Maybe varying from 160 to 230 degrees.
The flag/triangle indicates 50kts
1 line on the arm indicates 10kts
½ line on the arm indicates 5 kts
So, to read these, you’d add up the lines and their values to determine a wind speed.
Example: 1 triangle + 2 lines + ½ line = 50 + 10 + 10 + 5 = 75kts
Oh wow that actually makes much more sense! Thank you :)
@Highlander24… Here’s the most updating interactive weather site for the US… I recommend it to you.
They are called ‘Wind Barbs’, if I’m not mistaken.
I use that a lot for Wind Information, seems to be quite reliable.
this website is a bliss
if i m not wrong we from the game perspective
follow windy app right?
I think they use NOAA data. @schyllberg mentionned it somewhere.
