My grandson showed me this website which does a great job of visually displaying weather information both current and forecast.

Yes, a ripoff of Windy, Windy was created by Ivo, one programmer from Prauge, this page was copied by another group of people from Pilsen, a city about 100km from Prague. Given Ivo recently added many new features this one not only copies it, but doesnt even match it.

Would'nt say ripoff. The code for theese windyty-like animated windbarbs are available on Github. Not that difficult to get working once figure it out. In use ie. here: https://nordicweather.net/ennustekartat.php?en (default model is Hirlam)
