Deviation Sounding Forecast
The bar at the rigth in the sounding forecast predict much higher windspeeds then wat is shown on the map. Error factor = 3x times the normalized windspeed and windgusts about 1.5-2x times

@rickvds Hello, you are probably looking at surface level altitude than in the Sounding forecast feature.
@korina Yes I'm looking to the surface conditions. I fly paragliders wind at surface/low level is critical for us.
The location is in the Netherlands, where most ground is at sea-level.
After your reply I noticed that the Sounding diagram starts at 200m elevation
Which isn't clearly stated.
99.99% of the Netherlands is below 200m elevation.
Can you clarify why the diagram starts at 200m elevation even for lower locations?
Is just a representation issue or doesn't the model have data below 200m?
