Can I add to this question?
Great service on Windy, awesome data and comparison possibilities.
For glider use/ forecasting, any chance to add a few more parameters?
CAPE is already there, but in my opinion not a good thermal predictor.
Would it be possible to add one or several of (thermal gliding parameters):
- vertical wind speed
- Lifted Index
- Storm Helicity
- Thermal base (as suggested in another post)
- Boundary layer height (absolute and if possible also relative to ground)
- Sounding / Stueve for major points
I appreciat that this is a free service and much done in spare time.
Cannot speak for others, but I would be happy to pay a yearly subscription for this great source of weather forecast data.
