I’m a charter boat captain in Homer Alaska. I was born into commercial fishing in Alaska and have spent my life in some of the most brutal weather areas in the world. I’ve spent my whole life listening to weather forecasts on the VHF and SSB radio’s and when I could watch the news and using NOAA websites. All those options are great and have been life savers but WindAlert puts everything I want and need all right in my hand to look at all the time. Even when I get out of telephone service I can check the things I recently looked at and know when it’s time to boogie. WindAlert is also by far the closest you can get (in my area of the world) to what’s actually happening with the weather. There predictions are almost always spot on. I trust them as much if not more then NOAA weather. They need to put this technology into a satellite phone with a reasonable service plan and I’d be a life long member!
We are avid fishermen that enjoy going to the Oregon coast for fishing. It is a two hour drive to get to our destination, We use the Wind Alert app to plan our trips when the water and wind conditions allow, We have found the data to be very accurate and it has helped us reduce wasted trips only to find out conditions would not allow us to get across the Bar into a rough ocean. Thumbs up! Tight Lines!
I recently downloaded this app. It seems nice so far. However, is there any way to see what the gusts are? Where I live, we see lots of Santa Ana winds and lots of gusty wind. I think all that I’m able to view on this app is the sustained winds? Update: I found out I can tap the arrow for more details including gusts. That is nice. Any chance there can be a wind gust live map? That’d be neat.
It’s taken them some time but the app has become fairly bug free and is a must have for any serious wind sport person. The pro forecasts are generally much more accurate than the other “free” apps that just regurgitate official weather data. Plus their network of weather stations for real time data is unbeatable.
Why am I getting a black screen and not able to open the App? Update - Deleted the app and then download it again. It appears something happened during downloading the update. All is well. One of the best app out there. I depend on it when preparing my float plan and for any other outdoor activities.
