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.
@Korina Because of the problems that I am having with the iOS widget only working for a day or two at the most before it stops working so badly that I have to reinstall the app. This results in having to reinstall Windy every 2-3 days. Not a very desirable situation, to be sure.
I want to do some testing of the widget while keeping Windy in default vanilla configuration. If the widget fails after only two or three days without changing any settings, then there is surely something wrong with my system. Maybe some faulty setting is not being deleted when I remove the app, or another app is interfering Windy's widget functionality. But, whatever the problem, I would like to get it resolved.
So, right after this posts, I will remove Windy again, reboot my iPhone 7Plus, reinstall Windy 24, and take lots of screen shots.
I am still getting Widget crash reports, but I don't know enough to make heads or tales of them.
@iosman123 said in Drop in aircraft observations could have impact on weather forecasts:
thanks my issue has been fixed.
There are no historical / past data on Windy.
However you can get the past forecasts during last days at a location. To get them select Reported temperature or Reported wind in low right corner of your screen. Then click on a weather station (the small bubbles) near your location. You get a comparison of forecast temperature/wind with the observation at this weather station during last days. Unfortunately rain is not shown.
