Still awaiting some kind of feedback on this. My organization uses Windy a lot for the sole functionality of the weather picker, and that functionality has been significantly reduced.

URL for marker/pin no longer working.
I use the following URL to place a marker:
And nothing appears. The webpage is going to the correct coordinates, but there is no marker being placed. Has the URL syntax changed?
RE: Windy brings new Waves-radar and additional isolines
Wind wave = wave generated by wind
Swell = wave that has moved outside its area of generation
At any given state, there may be multiple series of waves at your location. The wind could be blowing very hard at your location, creating wind waves. A strong cold front could be moving across the ocean, generating waves that will later arrive at your location and in the opposite direction of the wind waves. A third, or fourth swell could also be present.
Bug Report - URL Format for automatically placing markers no longer works
I wrote a routine that automatically generates a windy view from a lat lon, zooming into a certain area and automatically places a marker at the location. With the latest update, the previously supported method of:
no longer functions. The map zooms in to the correct coordinates, and with the correct zoom level, but a marker is not displayed.
The only way I can get a marker to display is if I use the URL to open up the forecast panel, which I'd like to avoid.
RE: Help us to test Windy version 13.00
This killed the URL formatting to automatically bring up a marker:
Just zooms into the region defined by the coordinates, but no marker pin is displayed on the map. This was an EXTREMELY useful feature that I hope has not been removed. I'll submit a separate bug report.
RE: Is there any way to build a route and import it to windy.com?
Bumping this, as it's been a while. Has there been any thought to add this to the API?
Like ingest a delimitted text file containing points, then have the windy route/distance tool automatically place the points based on the data in the file.
Is there any way to build a route and import it to windy.com?
I developed a simple VBA routine to open up windy.com to a specific point and zoom using the URL.
Is there any way to build a route in the distance and planning tool from an external source and have it load automatically into Windy? We occasionally deal with a forecast that moves, whether it be a vessel or a tropical cyclone, and often have a list of lat/lon to work from. It would be nice if we could pre-load coordinates from a list and have it automatically build in Windy without having to construct it by hand every time.
RE: Why is Wind speed in hurricanes so wrong?
@Siff Where do you get the real data from for everywhere on the planet? It's easy to say you have real data in somewhere like the USA, which is covered by hundreds of observation points, along with upper air measurements taken twice daily. What about everywhere else?
How do you verify a forecast for a location which there is no credible observation data? Remote sensing can help, but it only goes so far.
