    Windy visualizes only weather models data and these models are NOT able to draw fronts. They are drawn usually by meteorologists so there is no solution at the moment to display fronts on Windy.

    As explained by @idefix37, there is no way for Windy to draw fronts. There are websites where fronts are drawn tha you can use.
    Having said that, there are alternatives to visualise fronts that you can use with Windy. One way is to use the humidity map at 700 hPa. A front is materialised at this altitude with a humidity above 90%. Another way, combined with the humidity map is the temperature map at 850hPa. Ideally we should use the potential temperature (thêta’w) but still it can give you an idea of the temperatures differences between air massa so in fact discontinuity which is the sign of a front.
    Again, those 2 maps don’t replace fronts map but it works quite well
