Comprehensive map-based weather app

Ventusky is a mobile and web-based weather application developed by the Czech meteorological company, InMeteo. Its default interface uses a map of your local area that conveys a substantial amount of weather data in a simple and easy-to-interpret platform—which also shows temperature color on-screen, as well as wind direction lines moving over the land. Everything that you could possibly hope for from a global weather forecast is available in one place, all at your fingertips.

Check the weather all over the world

Ventusky covers current weather patterns across the entire world in real-time. Enter your desired location into the search engine or drag and zoom using the simple mouse interface until you find the right place. The site uses animation to show you current wind patterns, allowing you to see at a glance exactly where the wind is blowing the moment you view the site. 

There are numbers neatly placed across the map. It will tell you the temperature in a certain local area. A little zoom out on the map and you will see how the weather looks nationally. Further zooming out of the map will demonstrate the international atmospheric conditions. The temperature units you usually view can be altered in the app’s settings. 

A wide array of weather information

Ventusky features a simple menu from which you can access information on temperature, precipitation, clouds, wind speed, air pressure, thunderstorms, waves, snow, and freezing. With just one click, the animated and real-time map will show you everything you need and want to know. You will even be able to share the information that you have. You can choose to share a link, screenshot, live screenshot, or embed links to various social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, VK, etc.

Furthermore, it offers a range of options that will allow you to home in on any specific weather conditions that you want to take a look at. Thus, if you are not fond of seeing the forecasted temperature, you can quickly change the kind of data displayed on your map’s interface in the app’s settings. There are plenty of options offered for you to choose from, including precipitation, cloud cover, humidity, or freezing level. All of the app settings updates are instantly rendered at lightning-fast speeds.

One of the best

Ventusky can reign as one of the greatest weather platforms in the market. However, it contains a few areas that require to be enhanced such as its need for more detailed map data when you zoom right in on a location, as the map blurs slightly and doesn’t offer a high level of detail. It is still impressive, especially with all the smooth and slick animation it showcases. This is definitely a good go-to weather app for everyone who wants to know either the forecasted or real-time atmospheric conditions at a certain location—nationally or internationally.
