The trajectory plugin is ideal for planning max distance flights from a single location.
I'm looking for a layer that highlights regions where there are different directions in the lower 10000 feet. e.g. red shading for a max of 180 degree difference, orange for 150, yellow for 120 etc Once I can see these broad areas of interest then I can manually investigate the possibilities for planning out and return flights.
The following 3 images are for winds at 5000, 6400, and 10000 feet in SE Australia. The bottom right shows a 180 degree different between the 5k and 10k winds.
If anyone is interested in helping with the plugin I would be happy to develop a detailed use case and specification,
@rittels ...use your Radiosonde plugin daily - it is great stuff.
Would you/could you upgrade the plugin to allow multiple model traces be displayed within the one window?
I have photoshopped a sample image of the concept I had in mind.
Change the T and Td plots to a single color. I think most users of this product know which is which from the plot.
Toggle on/off the model SkewT plot(s) to display
Link the LFC/CCL/TCon lines to one model only - user choice.
Retain the Blue Td and Red T plots for the model chosen
display the other selected "comparison" models as a single color (say dark grey for both T and Td plots). Give the user the option to display one or more "comparison" models.
when selecting a different model, it replaces the previous model with blue/red Td/T plots and the replaced model reverts to Dark grey.
LFC/CCL etc lines are linked to the main model (blue/red Td/T) plot only .
Fingers crossed you are feeling adventurous/motivated and are able to find some spare develoment time. Cheers :)
There is a workaround I use sometime. For one parameter you can take a screen video to keep several days forecast. https://community.windy.com/topic/6601/offline-use-of-windy/10?_=1679475898301
It needs to press first the play button when you make the screen video. But with Flight planner the play button is only available if you don’t add the Route planner panel. Or you need to move slowly the vertical time slider when recording the video.
