Propose a NEW LAYER / FEATURE You'd like on Windy
I propose a new layer -- Ocean Surface Currents from High Frequency Radar
This is a near, real-time product much like weather radar so could just be the most recent hourly observations or static 25hr average. It would be a sweet addition to the lineup of great layers.
There are four different grids based on the frequency of radars used and proximity to coast. The 2km and 6km grids have the most coverage but coarsest resolution.
Add a emergency and disaster layer, like RSOE EDIS
I would like to see helicity and lifted index

Hi. Congratulations for your site!
I am a paralider pilot. The wind directions in the alerts are not enough "fine tunable" for me. In paragliding more or less 20°make a big difference... Example : I can not set an alert at "ONO", I can only choose between O or NO.
@jmgalan being honest 20% is just about precision and tolerance of forecasting model, anyway wind direction always oscillates.
@qrj77416 WOW this is nice? What do you know about this service?
Better Alarm system with independent alarms for all layers
Hi. A version ago on the mobile app there was a slider on the left for altitude. And a setting/slider on the right for the basic view type.
I found this very useful as a pilot.
I’m presuming you moved away from it because many users are not pilots/aviators.
So I would like to propose a user-specified configuration that allows an aviation user (or whoever) to view/utilize the “two slider” GUI.
You could add many German weather stations for free.. Offered by DWD
I propose a new layer - Weather front.

A Cyclone/Hurricane/Typhoon Forecast Track
Once a Tropical Storm is "detected" (not sure with the term), there will be a forecast track for this storm with details about the max. wind speeds, gusts, and storm category.
I use this website for forecast tracks and other information (like chances of an area experiencing TS force winds, chances of landfall, etc.)
Add more radar data if available.. Eg for Germany
@ivo I do not know much about this service, besides what is on their page, I found while searching seismic maps and cyclones, and I came across it.
there looks that they have a paid API for others software, maybe windy can incorporate some info for free, but I don't know.
a Flight Tracker like Flightradar24, also a interesting thing for add on Windy
I have other feature to suggest, support for different map projections, Windy use Mercator projection, but there exist others more useful for studies and etc...
this site is a tool for see distortions on the Mercator projection.
It's already here !

This would be most helpful (Philippines) as to give an advance warning and probably save lives and give the agency a time in advance remotely

Dear Windy users,
this topic is for everyone who wants to propose a new layer or a new feature to Windy. Feel free to upvote the posts with best suggestions, so we may focus on them with higher priority.
Is it possible to add the Jet Stream to the display?
