If I clearly understand what you mean, you want to know the altitude of any location you point with the picker.
This altitude is given at right side of the local forecast table, you just need to swipe it.

RE: Ski resorts
Note that this layer with a medium resolution model, must be checked locally. Unfortunately in Canada this layer cannot be shown with a high resolution in Windy.
In addition the New snow layer and the local snow forecast are useful for ski resorts.
RE: ECMWF temps consistently low
Yes, at Kanab, Utah, ECMWF model shows lower temperatures. HRRR is much better and Meteoblue for local forecast is probably the best (shown with Observation vs forecast feature with the reported temperature at weather station of Kanab municipal airport).
Fortunately ECMWF is not so bad everywhere.
Why at your location this model gives so bad temps forecasts? Difficult to say. The model altitude is 100m higher than the real altitude, it explains a part of the discrepancy. There are mountains near Kanab, so a model with higher resolution like HRRR gives better results. But considering the temperature forecast on the Utah map, ECMWF seems globally lower and this is difficult to explained
RE: Very accurate at every location I have checked so far except 1thonotosassa,Florida weather station 1798 is showing 32 degrees sometimes doesn't report at all please fix this issue thanks Shane Thonotosassa, Florida
RE: I would like to thank the developers of this windy weather app it's got the best most accurate forecast and is the best weather app I have found thanks Shane white thonotosassa, Florida
Hi, this weather station is not reporting since last Sunday.
Windy can’t do anything about it. Only the owner of this personal weather station can fix it.

RE: Color codes
Setting the color scales is only available on desktop (website) or in the tablet app.
But not in the phone app. That’s probably the reason why you don’t find this setting if you try finding it on your phone.
At a location select Meteogram to get a forecast of clouds altitude during next days.
Try with different models specially ICON-D2 if available for you.
But it is not sure you will see the low stratus in mountain due to temperature inversion in winter during anticyclonic periods.
RE: legend does not match map overlay
The cloud cover shows in some areas small dots with different colors. They are the areas where it is raining.
The color scale gives the rain intensity in these dotted areas. Reason why the color scale is in inches. It is not concerning the cloudiness it self.
Here with the rain rate in mm:
So it matches perfectly.
RE: The degrees and weather shown are not the real ones
In Mutilva, Navarra Spain, it says sunny and it is all grey,
The ECMWF predict 97% cloudiness at 11h today, that’s not sunny:
And temperature forecast is 1°C
So there is no bug. And even when a weather model don’t predict exactly some parameter values such as temperature, wind or cloudiness, it is not a bug, just an inaccuracy. No need to post for that because Windy cannot do anything about this type of inaccuracy.
Which model are you using? There are 6 available in Spain. It is useful to compare them. Click Compare in local forecast table.
RE: Surface Maps
No, Windy does not display Surface Analysis maps, showing fronts, warm, cold or occluded. The reason for the lack of fronts has been explained very often here.
Example of Surface Analysis map:
Apart from fronts all the elements of Surface Analysis maps are available in Windy (isobars, pressure centers, temperature, precipitation areas….)
RE: Rappresentazione quota Zero termico
You are right. As example, here is the 0°C isotherm altitude above the highest summits in the Alps shown by ICON-D2. And ECMWF with a coarser resolution displays quite the same map in Windy.
Freezing altitude (0°C altitude) at 3000m level seems inconsistent. At same location Airgram by same model displays the 0°C level at 850hPa (1500m asl approx.)
Another app shows a similar map by the same model. So it is due to the way how this model compute the iso-0°C.
