Conditions of use

Free version

Windy API is free and with unrestricted traffic usage, but offers only gfs forecast model and only wind and temperature layer. Windy logo MUST remain clickable on the map without rescaling down, or messing with logo's opacity. However, you are free to move logo wherever you want inside the Windy map. For the free version of API, we reserve the right to 1) display advertisement inside the Windy map, 2) place "Download Windy App" message from time to time on mobile devices, or 3) discontinue free version of Windy API v4 at any time without prior notice.

Paid version

For serious work, we recommend to use the paid version that contains iconEu, nam and gfs models and will not contain ads. It costs only 720USD per year (ordered via this form and paid annually via invoice). Developers of paid version can decrease opacity of Windy logo to 0.8 (however logo must remain clickable) and usage limit is average of 5.000 Unique Visitors a day (measured by Google Analytics). For permission to a higher quota, please contact us.

Interesting and non-commercial sites using Windy API can ask for free upgrade to the paid version. The condition is that your project will be open sourced on GitHub. If this is your case, use the same form for paid version and describe your request.
