I used to display the Temperature layer at 850hPa altitude. It gives a rough idea of the position of fronts specially the cold fronts.
If you look at the current weather map analysis you see the main cold fronts
You see cold fronts in the Atlantic and one, but shown as a stationary front, from Greece to the Baltic Sea.
You can imagine them with the Temperature layer at 850hPa
It is more obvious if you consider the areas with a high temperature gradient (select temperature isolines instead of pressure isolines). Fronts stand where you find temperature isolines close together:
I must say that it is easier to see where fronts stand in winter because the temperature contrasts are more important. In summer it is not so easy.
@idefix37 thanks a lot, that's helpful, appreciate it!!! Sotir
@sotirpopov Are those images showing warm and cold fronts you made, are from Windy? I can't figure out how to display them?
I think I started getting the idea - playing with isolines for pressure and temperatures, based on your images. Thanks a lot! Sotir
Just select Temperature and adjust the altitude slider at 850hPa.

Would it be possible to add earthquakes?
@RosaLeal Hello, we may add it in the future as a new feature.

@the-old-man Another old man here who just loves this program! There are so many components of Windy that I love but having the ability to see whats reported and then what's actual is pretty neat. Also, instant gratification on my "favorites "with respect to forecasting and cams. I'm now experimenting with route planning which I intend to use this summer. **
Absolutely the best weather program I've ever seen and believe me, I've seen them all!
