Propose a NEW LAYER / FEATURE You'd like on Windy
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?
We would like:
1) Sea currents layer to work on the API
2) Forecast/Meteogram to work on the API
3) Mass import/export of favorites to be enabled
4) Historical data to become available again.
some more info about RSOE EDIS
First of all: Great work so far!
I would like to see some layers containing pseudopotential o equivalent potential temperature.
Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!
I would love love love love to have this as an Apple TV app. Would be the best screensaver...would keept it on during dinner parties, etc. Everybody is mesmerized and talks about it...
I would like to have to FREEZING ALTITUDE above SEA LEVEL. On Windy freezing altitude is proposed above the ground. This is not very useful in mountain to have a rough idea of the limit rain/snow. And if possible this freezing altitude in meters.
Till then ... (the way I use)
Choose a location with the picker
forecast for the location
The white line shows the height of zero isotherm.
I think is easy for developers to add height (in meters and FL)
in the vertical axis of the upper (temperature) part of airgram
the same way as they did for the lower (clouds, rain) part.
Many thank ! It’s a nice idea.
I suppose that the way how the freezing altitude (in feet) is shown on Windy is specially for pilots.
As aviation meteorolist, you can probably explain if it’s better for pilots to know the freezing level above the ground rather than the freezing altitude above the sea level (MSL). For planes, is the altitude or the flight level considered above the ground, and not above the sea?
Usually is that above the sea level but they use (at least) 2 altitudes!
When an aircraft is on the ground, the pilot adjust the altimeter (by inserting the pressure given by Air Traffic Control) to show the true altitude above MSL.
After take-off, in a certain height named transition level, all pilots set in the altimeter the standard value of 1013 hPa (29.92 inches Hg) in order to standardize the indicated altitudes.
