KMZ seems to be A zip archive of XML file(s) plus others. For instance "AL052019_041adv_TRACK.kmz" has "AL052019_041adv_TRACK.kml" in it plus all the icons they use. In windows can change the .kmz to .zip and open it. The Microsoft office format (docx, pptx, or xlsx) is also like this.
To get the NHC kmz's, get https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/gis/kml/nhc_active.kml It has the links to other current products in .kmz, and other info. A cron job on an OpenWRT router could easily serve/archive current products with wget/curl and xsltproc.

Our front end junior developer @iblfilip just finished long awaited Windy functionality: the file uploader.
Just visit https://www.windy.com/uploader and display KML, GPX or GeoJSON file on Windy.
Each file can be saved to our cloud either as public or private.
Each saved file than can be shared using nice shareable URL like this: https://www.windy.com/upload/5cef2a2781b2ea0012a05d5d
Enjoy and let us know how do you like it.
It works great but i have issues with the placements of the points, error is quite big but can be resolved by zooming the map. Hope you can resolve this one and by the way how can I donate to you?

Hi, this a great tool. It would be very useful for me (I am a marine scientist) while planning the routing between sampling stations at sea. I have been using windy for a long time during the cruises for optimizing the time and the convenience of the scientists on board.
I have a small suggestion. I uploaded a gpx file contains station points, which are visible on the map but the icons are too big and not displayed correctly. You may add a standard icon to solve this problem. My original icons are small green circles. Thanks again for your efforts.

@yoon-jong-hwan 1) You have to export the file as kml (not kmz which is just zipped kml and the images folder), 2) if there are incons or pictures in kml, all images have to be hosted somewhere and linked by their full urls (they won't be uploaded to Windy, showing "dead" image links).
If you have trouble uploading NWS/NOAA or JTWC cones, just chat me here in community and I'll show you how these files have to be edited to work on Windy.

Is there a up date to get future Radar? I along with many would delete out weather apps if you have future radar and text notifications!
I continue to appreciate this tool. It is proving to be very useful for visualizing weather along a sailing passage. It would be very cool if the weather detail bar as shown in the distance planner were also available for kml, gpz, GeoSON routes.
As more routes are added, and I predict there will be thousands as others discover it, a search tool would be very helpful. Maybe search or filter uploaded routes by user? Or by those routes applicable to the current screen view, i.e. take the lat/lon rectangle from the screen corners and filter for the uploaded routes which intersect that rectangle.

Great work. I see .xml file upload possibility and have tried it but for some reason doesn't work. File has been converted from .csv file that I use for navigation in other system
