Windy offers new model ICON-EU with 7km grid resolution
@gutiserra This model has a resolution of 7km compared to the ECMWF model with a 13km resolution on windy.com. It should gives shaper forecast images with ICON. As example, just look to wind analyse on Corsica island in Mediterranean Sea with ICON and with ECMWF, you wil see more details with ICON. This is interesting for short forecast time (24h or 48h) close to mountain and sea shore. But more resolution does not mean always better forecast !
Bravo. Chapeau. Beau travail.
@ivo it looks very impressive, where can I read more about this model? How do they get more resolution?
Super! Very useful. Mni tnx

Yes! I appreciate that!
but why you downgraded ECMWF from 9 km to 13 km?
Since Mar. 2016 the horizontal grid spacing for ECMWF model is
0.1° x 0.1° lat/long.
As 1° = 60 Nautical Miles = 111 km
0.1° = 11 km
"... The new cycle reduces the horizontal grid spacing for high-resolution forecasts from 16 km to just 9 km."
@ivo nice site, good job
as if it was possible to add the sensitive temperature option
świetna robota. Dzięki!
great👍!! Thank you
Good Job, wish i was that good, only beginner skills...Keep up the good work...
Awesome! Thanks a lot!
@dzuremar We are also planning to use ICON data, but Netcdf jar can not open the grib file. What tools or library do you use to handle it?
