[App] Ventusky – Weather Maps & Radar
The app combines highly accurate weather forecast for your location with a 3D map showing development of weather in a broader area in a very interesting way. This allows you to see where precipitation is going to come from or where the wind is blowing from. The uniqueness of the app comes from the amount of data displayed. Forecast of weather, precipitation, wind, cloud cover, atmospheric pressure, snow cover and other meteorological data for different altitudes is available for the whole world. Moreover, the app is completely free of ads.
The Ventusky application solves weather displaying in an interesting way. Wind is displayed using streamlines which clearly portray the continuous development of weather. Airflow on Earth is always in motion and the streamlines depict this motion in an amazing way. This makes the interconnection of all atmospheric phenomena obvious.
Weather forecast for the first three days is available in the app in one-hour steps. For other days, it’s available in three-hour steps. Users can also look up sunrise and sunrise times in a given place.
Thanks to the Ventusky application, visitors get data directly from the numerical models that, just a few years ago, were used solely by meteorologists. The app collects data from the most accurate numerical models. Besides the well-known data from the American GFS and HRRR models, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world. Two models, EURAD and USRAD, are based on current radar and satellite readings. These models are able to show precisely current precipitation in US and Europe.
You can also display weather fronts. We have created a neural network that predicts the positions of cold, warm, occluded, and stationary fronts based on data from weather models. This algorithm is unique, and we are the first on the world who makes global fronts forecast available to users.

Ventusky user reviews :
I have been looking for a weather app that makes it easy to plan out a travel route based on weather, and this seems to be perfect. Most other weather apps focus on your current location, but you can easily see weather forecast for anywhere with this app, not to mention it’s so beautiful to look at. Premium is so cheap, I’ll probably be upgrading soon if app works well.
Love it, love it, love it!! Particularly useful when in destinations where the weather can vary a lot through the course of a day. I’ve used for about 2 months now, including traveling to Alaska and Orlando during Hurricane Ian. This app was SO spot on in both situations. Don’t even think about it, just reward the developers immediately with a (VERY inexpensive) yearly subscription right out of the box!!! Very well done!!!!
Switching “Model” to “Automatic” in the settings has fixed the issue. The app is great! This app is nice, but it was awesome. It seems the latest update has removed forecast from the free version? If so, it’s become kind of useless and I can no longer suggest it to people because weather apps should display the future weather.
- Hi Cody, we still offer the same information as in the previous version. Make sure, that you are using AUTO model in the Settings.
Great app. I used Windy for a while as well as WU but this has so much more information than those in current form. I upgraded to the premium layers almost immediately. If I had to have 1 beef, it’s that the app seems to crash on my S-10+ when I zoom in too far (about 5 mile radius maybe?). Otherwise, it’s worked flawlessly. Not sure if it uses personal weather station data or not (even better if so) but it seems to accurately predict the arrival & length or rain showers.
- Hi Thomas, thank you, I am glad to hear that. We will look at this issue.
