How to read Airgram

hmmm, thats is good think
is it possible to see the altitude displayed as meters above sea level instead of pressure levels? If not, is there a plan to implement this view in the future?
I don’t think this is possible because the weather models outputs are in pressure level. It is the way how they work, by pressure level, not by amsl levels.
@idefix37 it would be great for paragliding to work out what wind speed you have at which height. for example if you know that your take-off is at 1500m above sea level then you need to know what kind of wind speed & from which direction is to be expected at that height & above that height. is there another way how to easily find out this info using Windy?
In fact, pressure levels can be converted in mean altitudes or flight levels.
Using Sounding you get directly the mean altitude and the wind speed / direction.
On desktop right tap on your mouse.
In the app long press on screen.
Then click the altitude scale to get speed and direction of wind.
You can reduce the altitude scale to 7000m max.
Use the time slider to change time stamp.
@idefix37 that's awesome, thank you very much!

i need this kind of information same as you
Could you explain how to interpret the airgram at different altitude levels?
First have you read the first post of this topic?
Then see additional information at
