Is there a way to add a custom WMS layer or import daily GeoTIFF imagery? There is a lot of people in sailing community in Norway who is using Windy actively, but the ice edge information is missing. Norwegian MET service is producing ice charts in ESRI shape format, which would be easy to import, but the level of details is frequently not sufficient, raster imagery would be a lot more convenient. There are few agencies including my employer that produce and publish daily mosaics of Sentinel-1 radar data (not affected by clouds or absence of light), so getting the data would be rather simple.

Aurora lights forecast as a new layer?
Here is Mikhail, another new user of Windity, who is quite blown away by the classy level of the service. Lots of kudos to Ivo and whoever else is contributing.
I have a layer request, that you might be interested in. Would you consider adding a Aurora lights forecast layer? The data is publicly available from NASA Space Prediction Center in ASCII format at 0.3deg resolution. Currently it is delivered only as 30 minutes forecast, but the 3 days forecast is coming soon (or perhaps even available on request). The forecast for the geomagnetic activity is available here: http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/node/114
It would blend exceptionally well with the cloud overlay, and would add a great value for the people looking where to observe Aurora lights (read tourists, hikers, etc). Clouds often are the major problem for Aurora observation.
Myself being a meteorologist and software developer I could give a hand in implementing it, if needed.
