We may not be able to redirect that punishing headwind or conjure up a powerful tailwind for your next ride, but we can improve wind forecasts! The latest release of Epic Ride Weather has been fine-tuned to make wind strength and direction easier to take in at a glance.

The left screenshot above shows arrows corresponding to wind speed and direction. The right screenshot shows the exact same forecast with the previous version of Epic Ride Weather, with arrows only showing wind direction.
This latest installment of the Epic Ride Weather app comes to you courtesy of suggestions and excellent feedback from Gary and Juan Jose. Thank you both!
