Windy offers Sounding Forecast
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

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.
@eduardosg Yes, it is just from that pressure levels. I agree that it could be more detailed. Data exists, but we are not processing them now. So maybe in future if the diagram would be considered as a popular tool.

Will you show people how to use the new program.
If you read several posts in this topic you will understand how to use it
And here :

Really nice! Thanks again. I also like this more than Skew t-log p, which is too complicated in mobile. I hope this recent version will be at least one alternative in future and even the default. @ivo By the way the level indicator is not working in Firefox browser ( Chrome and Edge OK)
