Wind direction – Live wind speed map

The wind map presents the current wind direction and strength in Europe and any location in the world. Wind forecast today and for the following days. Wind gusts and very strong periodic winds: hurricanes, cyclones, monsoons and tornadoes visible on the current wind map.

On the wind radar you can observe local winds like helm, sirocco, mistral and air currents such as sea breeze blowing during the day from above the sea or mountain valley wind blowing up. Whereas the trade winds, i.e. Warm winds with moderate and constant strength can be seen especially in the tropical zone.

Live wind speed map - wind direction

Strong and gusty winds can contribute to the coming of a storm with rainfall. Violent winds often come with cold air.

Where the wind blows – Forecast and map of the wind

Setting the anemometer in a selected place on the wind map, we will determine the wind speed expressed in km / h, m / s or kt and the direction indicated by the arrow and described by the direction of the world. Check where it is currently blowing in the world. The meteograms show a wind forecast for 10 days.

Wind rose – How to determine the wind direction

Wind is a rush of air that moves parallel or slightly slanting to the surface of the earth. The direction of the wind is marked by the side of the world from which it is currently blowing. For example: N – north wind, S – south, E – east, W – west, SW – southwest wind, etc.

What is a wind rose?

The wind rose indicates the wind direction in degrees of an angle, starting from the north (N)

The wind direction is determined by means of a flag sleeve. In home conditions, a rooster weather vane that can be an ornament on the roof and in the garden.

How to assess wind strength

Wind force or speed, is measured using various instruments, e.g. Wilde’s anemometer, modern electronic wind meters and a wind speed sensor. cranial anemometer.

We can assess the strength of the wind by observing different places and things. The wind at the Earth’s surface encounters many obstacles, so its speed increases with height above the Earth. Wind power is used to propel wind farms.

Wind observation:

  • silence, weak wind – the leaves of the trees and flags move slightly, the smoke rises almost vertically
  • moderate wind – tree branches move, flags straighten
  • fresh wind – thicker branches of trees move
  • strong – large branches and thin trunks move, it may be difficult to walk
  • storm – branches and thin trees break, large trees sway 
  • orkan – thick trunks can be broken or uprooted, roofs are torn off

The Beaufort scale is most often used to describe wind.
