Windy offers Sounding Forecast
This is awesome, but what would be even better, and really, really valuable as a next feature would be hail and near-term hail forecasts and warnings. It seems like there may be some model development needed (especially going forward), but just integrating the already-existing lightning and radar data to display hail presence and near-term probability would be a huge win.

Air sounding, sounding forecast or skew diagram is here (there is plenty of names for it). So far we support only
ecmwfbut other models will be supported too. Just click with right mouse button on a map and use link in context menu (long tap on mobile will do).
Developed by our soaring pilot & programmer @TZ so enjoy. And BTW works on mobile device too.

Fantastic thank you
Very nice. Needing help bring my 3D globe up.
@raymondpaul - Look elsewhere in the discussion board. Windy got rid of it completely.

I love it!
I'm a paraglider pilot myself, I use windy.com a lot for preparation (figuring out where to go to fly really) but missed skew-t , B/S ratio, updraft velocity, top of usable lift. Great to get skew-t out of ECMWF that model is awesome! It would be really nice to get HTOL (top of lift) as well, around here in the West that's usually more interesting than LCL as it's so dry here ...
In that picture, top of lift is probably going to be at that inversion at ~3000ft.
The zoom feature is also very appreciated to see details close to the surface like that.
@ivo Thank you for your attempts
Unfortunately this feature is deprecated

Well done!!!! Can you do it in skew-T/log-p, please?
I would really aprecciate if you could show the surface parcel trajectory.

Excellent tool !!
Now I can see in a glance what I needed 9 clicks before by changing pressure levels
I suspect the sounding is simplified between the few pressure levels that are available ... ( ... 900 mB - 850 mB - 800 mB - 700 mB ...)
Is there no info available for intermediate pressure levels?
It would be nice to have inversions more clearly depicted if the info is available !!

Great to plan visual flights !
@gkikas-lgpz I right click, but I get the regular model weather forecast, but if I go to Airgram, I guess that counts as a sounding forecast. That shall suffice. Thanks!!
@fx-eddh I agree much more info in Skew T Log P format. Nonetheless, very very impressive and your starting to compete with top-notch Met software now.
I'm cheering for you!
Like it but what station will be shown?
Its a model forecast product.
You can have a forecast sounding in any location all over the world.
It is not actual observation made by a weather balloon.
Sehr gut, die legende noch ein bisschen besser erklären.
