Hi, there is a Sounding feature on Windy which could be interesting for you. It allows to get a profile of the atmosphere above your location as provided by ECMWF. Click the right button of your mouse to open it.
It shows 2 curves: the red one is the air temperature, the blue one the dew point. When the 2 curves are close together, there is a risk of clouds at this altitude (the water vapor condensates when the air temperature reaches the dew point). The profile changes when you move the timeline cursor.
So it's another way to estimate the risk of cloudiness. But I don't know if it brings really additional information compared to the Cloud layer as it comes from the same model forecast.
@idefix37 Thanks for the info, I was unsure about the colour of the arrows, thinking that they were corresponding to the colour chart below, your explanation explains it, we are cruising sailors so it's important to get it right especially for some areas.
Definitely more visual information. Much clearer.
Rather than just isolines with Temperature layer:
With another colour setting for Temperature:
With Wind layer:
I really prefer the map of Météociel here above.
Windy has already the data to make a Geopotential height layer. It should very useful for a better understandIng of future weather development.
Windy also has a feature which may be of some help:
How To Use The "Observation vs Forecast" Feature
This feature enables you to compare what the "Weather Station Observed" with what the various "Forecast Models Predicted" during the last few days.
Cristobal has formed in the Gulf of Mexico.
Its likely to maintain stationary for the next couple of days
and then, a southerly flow should carry the system
toward the northern Gulf of Mexico coastline.
