Frontal boundaries and pressure systems. How to enable.

Is there a way to enable frontal boundaries and pressure systems? I cannot choose a layer to allow these to appear. Thanks for the help.
At the bottom right there is a small button to turn on 'Pressure'. This will give you isobaric lines on top of whatever other layer you are viewing.
Or there is also an actual layer called Pressure which will display the Isobars and the a heat map style indication of the pressure.
But I don't think there is a way to display the actual frontal boundaries (warm front, cold front, etc).
I agree that this could be a useful addition if the source data is available for Windy to integrate.
Please see this link to understand why Windy cannot display fronts:
Windy visualize only what numerical forecast models provide, but do not interpret the data.
I get a layer in my ForeFlight app that shows fronts and upper layer waves. Very up-to-date and helpful for flight planning.
May be available to Windy?
May I have a question?
If ForeFlight app brings you every information you need, why do you want the same on Windy? Does Windy has something better?
Then according to their presentation, they say to have a world wide layer of pressure showing isobars and pressure centers... Windy has the same. They show surface analysis with fronts, troughs... but only over USA.
You talk about upper level waves but Windy shows them too with Geopotential heights, Wind, Temperature, Humidity... at these levels.
