Enroute 2D weather cut (similar to Gramet or Meteoblue)
I have asked about this feature long time ago. Is there any possibility to implement it on Windy?
There are only a few services that offer cross-section weather along a route:
- Gramet - it's old, doesn't update and offer to build a route from airport to airport
- Autorouter - an improved version of Gramet. You can check weather along any route and it use more advanced GFS model, but it's still not very reliable.
- Meteoblue - the same old GFS data, with, allegedly, some adjustments, but I eventually found, over many flights, that it was too unreliable to tell me anything which wasn’t blindingly obvious from the MSLP.
So my question is, can we expect such a feature from Windy, considering that you have so much weather data at your finger tips?

well, 1.5 years has passed since that thread. I would really appreciate if they come up with an update to this feature.
I would also like to add my support for the development and inclusion of a "cross-section" forecast into the Windy platform.
From an aviation forecasting perspective, this add-in would be greatly appreciated and would be supported from those in the aviation industry (both pilots and forecasters).
I don't believe the initial version should require the "icing/turb" display presented in the Ogimet GRAMET product. Just a simple cross section of the currently available model weather data (for instance, wind/temp/dew point/RH and cloud groups - possibly precip) between multi-points would be more than adequate to assist with flight planning and weather route monitoring.
Appreciate all the work and development currently going into this platform.

Agree with your proposition and request.
In addition it would be very much appreciated (by all, I'd bet) if such displays, as per the pop-up weather point location forecasting strip, had the option to expand them up to full-screen size for much easier viewing and comprehension of the displays - at least in the internet version of Windy.
@igor-320 concur, this would be a realllllly useful feature.
