If you click on the "live wind" menu it will show you where the heaviest winds across the country are

Hey RealDiehl on that windalert.com you were saying you can't get it to show you your actual location? I found a way to do it. Under live wind select the wind map, on the next screen there is a green square with 3 lines in it, select that. Then choose wind and gust map..scroll down to customize in the same box and under background select map. Hope that helps!!

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I use an app called windy it works rather well

Yeah I use an app called myradar to check for storms and stuff. It has a feature to show winds, but it's difficult to use. And it doesn't show actual speeds or anything. I've been looking for an app that will show wind speeds and direction, but have been striking out so far.
