Windy.app Blog is the main media of the leading professional weather forecast app for wind sports and outdoor activities: kitesurfing, sailing, paragliding, skiing, and others. The app was recognized as the best in its category by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 2020.

This post will help you navigate through the blog's diverse content. It is now six years old, with over 200 informative and entertaining posts written by experts and locals on a wide range of topics, including the three main ones — weather forecasting, outdoor activities, and the Windy.app itself, and their intersection. The formats range from guides and how-tos to interviews and insights.

Given a large amount of content, here's the most useful posts on each topic on this page, but as you read it, you'll find links to more related articles.

For your convenience, we also combine posts with similar topics into thematic collections, including the Collection of articles about wind forecasting that should be read first and foremost by all wind-dependent sportsmen. In each collection, you will find a list of all the posts on the topic, and here's a link to all collections.

You can also publish your own blog post by suggesting a topic to the editor. This is a great opportunity to tell our audience about yourself and your project.
