Windy offers Sounding Forecast

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.

@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.

I'm not an expert, but it´s great for me. Thanks!
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)

Thank you greatly for doing this as it is very useful. Is there anyway that this can be implemented on the android app?
@ivo would love to see this implemented on the android app as well. Many thanks for for offering this awesome tool!

Your entire product has made pilot decision making much easier. Thank you for creating it. Adding a skewt/sounding for enroute travel is a great idea.
WOW! THANKS! It's still a bit hidden in the interface. I struggled to find it on the web (right click, but not from a pin that is already placed) and haven't found it on mobile app yet (iOS).
Keep it coming!

@kekert, +1 from another paraglider pilot for suggestions of @krchnavy. Thermals/Lift is the crucial information for all soaring pilots. This info also could be shown on maps like for example in www.xcskies.com. If you could implement this kind of functionality in the Windy, hands down, it would be the best meteo website.

@TZ Yes please! Skew-T format for soundings would make these sounding much more powerful!
There is a plugin with Skew-T format soundings

There is a bug on Firefox 70.0.1 on linux : when the sounding window is moved or when the screen is scrolled, the coordinates of the left click are wrong (to display the horizontal bar showing values for a given elevation / pressure).

Great addition for windy. Is there any chance we could see it having the choice to visualise the soundings with a: Skew T log P format? In the southern hemisphere thats the norm. All soundings published and used by the Bureau of Meteorology in Australia use a Skew T log P format. Great app. Love your work!
@davink There are 2 plugins for that:
- "SkewT diagram" and
- "Sounding" (by default scales are tailored for free flight but you can see a skewT LogP by unchecking the "zoom view" box at the bottom.
Go to windy.com/plugins to load the plugins (you have to reload them each time you visit the site).
Hope this helps
