So what counts as windy weather?


#1

I have seen that the weather function is a bit of. It isnt really super accurate but it gets it right 7/10 times. But what I am most curious about is how they decide if its windy or not. For me its simple. Everything over 6 m/s should be windy weather in Go.

Does anyone know anything about the windy weather conditions? Today we had well over 7 m/s of wind but only cloudy on Go.

It is based on the weather service that Pokémon go uses dictates the in game weather. I have read that what accuweather is the service used although I’m not positive.


#3

It seems like they are using it here in Sweden aswell. Ill check it out.

The weather will only show as “Windy” if the wind is more prominent than the cloudiness/sunniness/etc.


#5

Yes the weather system is confusing. Here in the UK we had 80 mph winds and yet because of the clouds it classed as cloudy…


#6

I have learnt that it will show what accuweather shows. Not a good weather app. Its 90 % of when it comes to rl weather.

I got windy weather for the 1st time on Monday, and it wasn’t even that windy. 5-8 mph ish
