Potentially useful new feature in Willy Weather

#1 Post by Steve R » Sun Nov 15, 2015 8:52 am

Willy Weather now has user-configurable graphs. For example, you can create a chart showing predicted swell direction and predicted wind direction to see whether predicted wind and wave directions are the same or different.

To use: After entering a location that has tide/swell data, the bottom right of chart in the menus for Wind; Rainfall; Tides; or Swell is an 'open in graphs' link. Click on that to open up in charts. This will open the same chart as the web page you were on. Alternatively, use the 'More' drop-down arrow at the top right and select 'Graphs'.

Below the chart are check boxes that enable you to add or remove chart lines. After checking the boxes you want and unchecking the boxes you don't want, click the [Add Graph] button. All done.

Hmm Real time barometer is rising. Tide is near the top. Time to go fishing!
