Airgram meaning



  • Hi everybody
    I'm new to paragliding and I know that people use apps like windy to check if the wind condition is allright for a flight.
    Unfortunetly I do not know much about weather forcast.
    I know what the symbols in the airgram mean. But there is a column of these symbols for each observed hour. What does that mean?? How can this diagram help me decide if the weather is suitble for flight or not?



  • @p1rate Hi! Symbols illustrate wind speed and direction.
    See this picture: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weather_map#/media/File:Wind_barbs.gif
    How can this help you to prepare flight? It depends on what kind of flying you do (thermal flying / ridge flying) and on the terrain where you want to fly.
