Windfinder App Predicting Wind Patterns

We all probably have our favorite go-to weather app we use on a daily basis, but does your weather app predict the wind forecasts? We’ve found an app that does just that and has become our new go-to tool when deciding whether or not to apply herbicides and/or pesticides.

Windfinder is a free app for iPhones and Androids that provides real-time and predicted wind/weather forecasts for more than 30,000 locations worldwide using data from 17,000 weather stations. It measures wind speed, direction, air temperature and pressure, cloud cover, and precipitation.

Here is a screenshot of the app.

Wind information is displayed neatly within the app.

In addition to farmers, Windfinder is used by kite surfers, windsurfers, surfers, sailors, and paragliders. Do you use the app? If not, what are your favorite go-to apps?
