Surface Analysis



  • Hi - wonder if you could add a feature to display surface analysis, like location of fronts, lows, highs, troughs, ridges, etc. Static and animated displays would be great. Thank you...

    Difficult to add fronts as they are drawn by meteorologists, not by numerical weather models.

    With the exception of fronts you have everything you ask on Windy : Lows, Highs, Troughs, Ridges are already available on isobars maps.
    Then you would like animated Fronts. The step of animation on Windy is 3 hours. Usually Weather Services draw 1 or 2 front map for a day, but 8 maps for animation is a tremendous work in particular on a global scale .... with update every 12 h, which mean 16 worldwide maps per day !
    This a job for computers but they are not skill yet to do that.



  • @idefix37 Well, this answered my question. BTW, you are doing a great job. Love Windy!
