ECMWF data are not available through plugings
We will have a call with them tomorrow regarding licencing. We are unable to explain them, that plugins do no harm. We will let you know about result then
Quick answers as I don't have much time right now
@Gkikas-LGPZ There is no data at 250hPa for GFS
@johnckealy It would be great if we can come with only one codebase and a few options. That would be less to maintain and more maintainers.
@stitch I have a linear scale in unzoomed view ready. I only need to publish it, probably later today.
@ivo great, thanks !
They have to understand that it is not anybody who uses the dataLoader, really only a few of us. We can use gfs to experiment, and then apply for access to ecmwf, if the plugin qualifies. Obviously you will check that we do not post data elsewhere. Which we will definitely not do!!
It would be great if the approved plugins are then more integrated in Windy.
I really appreciate that you allow us to build plugins on windy. Great fun.
What I meant is that 250hPa is NOT in the data loaded from the data loader - that is whatever is available to plugins for GFS.
The windy UI might:
- do an interpolation,
- have more data available but I doubt as @ivo told me the opposite on an other thread.
Did you check if that is not a simple interpolation ?
250 hPa data are not a simple interpolation.
Your SkewT program is "hot topic" at the moment - credit where credit is due for your plugin.
Could I throw another request at you? Are you able to make the parcel trace trajectory/potential cloud development feature available for all hours.
Admittedly, in most cases the overnight period will have minimal surface parcel lift. However, I would like to see this option available for early morning and late afternoon (and even overnight) when certain convective situations could still provide surface parcel lift.

I noticed you had added a parcel trajectory too @vicb; I was wondering, how does it work? The parcel seems to have an origin temperature that is different from the surface temperature, so what is it based on?
The parcel is displayed from 2h after sunrise to 2h before sunset and starts at the surface elevation at air temperature +3C - it seems to works better for my use case. I think it would be better to discuss on an other thread ?
