In the case of a political dispute please leave such topics out of the Windy forum and instead focus on the discussion of weather.
Thank you for your understanding :)
The "distance & planning" tool gives the basic vertcal cross-section, now if you could add a field where we can input a TAS and altitude, and from there you calculate a GS and advance the forecast along the route (like OGIMet or the autorouter GRAMET) it would be fantastic.
Thanks for a great tool Windy-team!
I don't think so, Windy just offers forecasts / observations on maps.
If you would need raw data, you could obtain it directly from the same providers as Windy (when freely available).
E.g. GFS model data is publicly available here (but you should cope yourself with GRIB2 format).
There is also an additional thread here https://community.windy.com/topic/10998/new-zealand-radar-service/5 suggesting that an API may be becoming available later this year.
Possibly that and some other questions in that thread may need following up?

You already asked the same question:
Did you reply to @Korina's demand which was "if you know their websites, you can state them here and we will have a look :)"?
Please update the forecasts according to the real data on the ground.
"forecast": Now + [1..N] hours
"real data on the ground": Now - [0..N] hours/minutes/etc.
Thus, once computed, a forecast couldn't be updated with "real data on the ground".
Even if each computed forecast takes into account observations made AT/BEFORE computing time.
