Display earlier model runs
I'm new to windy, but have done tropical cyclone (TC) numerical weather prediction (NWP) for many years...and have forecasting experience with the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) and the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
when noaa.gov comes back, see http://ruc.noaa.gov/hfip/jtdiag for a site providing critical environmental parameters affecting TC intensity change, e.g., vertical wind shear (difference between the 850 and 200 hPa winds).
When I use windy to look at the current systems in the SW Pacific (08P and 98P on 2019020100), it would be helpful to look at earlier runs of the models to see how well they are tracking (pun intended ;) ) the storms... is this possible? setting the reference time of the model run?
also, ECMWF and NCEP run TC trackers that output the position, intensity (max sfc wind speed) and, for wind people, radius of 35/50/64 kts... adding those tracker positions and wind structure would be cool -- I can help provide...
happy new year and best /R
