I use Windy a lot to check the forecasted conditions on Charlotte Harbor before I go out. My boat is a handful in more than 12-15 kts, so if I see that forecasted I don't go.


I also use it for picking anchorages that are protected from wind in the overnight period.


The link talked about activating the Reported wind conditions. This is one of the more layer icons that looks like a wind sock in the lower right of the screen. When Windy's forecast and real world conditions are divergent that raises a red flag when the wind is marginal.
