Please show wind direction (again and) into correct direction. The arrow should always point into the actual direction and not opposite.

Regarding the wind direction: Here is a good suggestion for improving:

Guys, are you real sailors?

@kandelabra I am and my maps show arrows in the direction the wind blows and data reads always from so the arrow is for me in the right position but as it is an arrow it is pointing in the wrong direction for common people. While a wind indicator always points in the direction where the wind is coming from. So I read all kinds of data depending from where I read it, on a map the arrows show the flow direction, on a wind indicator/display the other way round. EDIT: Oh and the detailed information website shows the arrows in the opposite direction so this is an inconsistency issue at least.

I am. Does it do wind in knots? I've been asking for that on the BBC weather app for ages.

I would have the middle diagram but with the arrow top-left.

I suppose that most of townsmen do not really care about wind direction. The wind from the south can be cold. And some of them when asked will be not able to point to the south or to the west, only to the nearest cafe or subway station :)
