Good afternoon Windy community
This plugin is a team effort, by @mhaberler and myself. Thank you for @vicb for the use of your code and @johnckealy for the initial inspiration.
Our plugin displays radiosonde (weather balloon) data on Windy. You can then compare it to recent historical forecasts.
Please read the comprehensive description on Michaels blog: https://blog.mah.priv.at/release-announcement-windy-plugin-radiosonde/
We hope you enjoy it!!
PS: It is interesting to use it with the new thermal layer.

Excellent work, very useful !!!
Few improvement. Added lines for LCL, CCL, TCON, and control of these lines.
The plugin is published on github: https://github.com/rittels/windy-plugin-radiosonde
the skew-t part is here: https://github.com/rittels/skewt-js
We're tracking a webserver issue with a certain german corporate environment - obviously their firewall mangles headers leading to a 404 on some data files
service will be shaky for an hour or two until the issue is nailed
back to normal
certain corporate firewalls like to strip any accept-encoding headers, killing the advantage of precompressed assets like brotli or gzip.
working on a fix

Hello to all. This plugin is very useful for my work. I am the head of the air defense against hail and I need data for daily predictions .
The development of the program is an important acquisition for all of us who are engaged in activities that depend on good weather forecasts, and Windy is, in my opinion, a more complex meteo site that is accessible to the public. Thanks again to the groups that build and develop the products.
It would be great for my activity if we could integrate https://www.flightradar24.com/ as a layer in the program.
With regards Darko Kralj

Best plugin to display radiosoundings.
I use it in my job as a flight weather forecaster as well as for my hobby as a balloon pilot.
