In addition to that, you can browse through all availabe forecast times up to seven days in the future using the “+3h” and “-3h” buttons.


There is also the special “Get Link” function. Navigate to your favorite view and click on the “Get Link” button in the top left corner. You will receive a link to the current view that you can pass to your friends by mail or Instant Messenger or you can put it on your website or blog. For example you can directly link to the wind forecast for tomorrow in Northern Germany, Tarifa area or the French Mediterranean coast.
