    Life's been busy so I haven't posted on the site much these days, but someone told me about windy.com to check wind currents/directions. Thought it might be useful to everyone here. I searched the forum for "windy.com" and it didn't return any results, so hopefully I'm not rehashing old information that every knows.

    Good luck this year to everyone!

    that looks very similar to the MyRadar app, pretty slick way of displaying wind conditions:tu:

    I use scoutlook for hunting and it shows wind direction, scentcone, forecast, location etc.

    I did see that wind site on the news when they were talking about the hurricane.

    I use weather underground for wind direction which has been the most accurate for me.

    I used to use Scoutlook, but I didn't like changes to the app a year or two ago and I've removed it.

    That's pretty awesome. I personally use huntstand, they have a scent zone wind map with their app. But i installed this as well and will probably use it. Great find.
