Testing Australian Bureau of Meteorology Color Gradient



  • Hi folks,

    recently, I found out that Australian Bureau of Meteorology updated their color gradient due to extremely high temperatures. They added purple color for temperatures above 54 C! So, I decided to try BOM's temperature gradient on Windy. Here is the original BOM's gradient:

    0_1523007050051_IDY20301.T-2m.030.png

    Here is the result on Windy:

    For those, who are interested in changing their temperature gradient, below are the colors. Go to Menu/Settings/Modify layers colors, change layer to temperature, then click on show gradient, copy & paste gradient from below, and click import gradient. And that's it.

    Nice..will try it


  • Moderator

    Do they have a alternate wind gradient too?



  • @Tomber42 I tested it and surprisingly it look nice. However, the wind particles are not visible. Here is the original:

    And here is the gradient on Windy:

    Yes it looks nice ! A little bit like my own settings below !! :-)

    Concerning the temperature I’m not really interested to change the temperature gradient over 54ºC, but much more in very low temperature range for a better analysis in altitude. I’ll try it later.



  • Very impressive. Well done.



  • I'm adding a link to a handy tool, useful if you want to make small adjustments to Windy gradients.

    @tomslavkovsky
    Nice I’ll use it.



  • A more pleasant colors for the binary layers eg: Fog, Thunderstorms

    [[0,[69,111,117,256]],
    [1,[116,221,237,256]],
    [2,[200,200,255,255]]]
    


  • @michal-koldinsky
    Can we have the ability for more colors for tstms ? (is not a binary layer).
