I'm feeling really dumb about this and I still have questions. 1 - If I have the slider at anything BELOW 5,800 ft. what am I seeing about the wind? 2 - If the model altitude is 5,350' and the airport is 5,800' what altitude are the winds being shown with the slider at 6,400'? 6,050 or 6,850? 3 - This is from the Windy community: "The grey line shows the temperature of a parcel of surface air and how its temperature would change if it was lifted." What does that mean? Also, there are two grey lines.!

RE: What is the altitude - simple
What is the altitude - simple
I see several answers to my question that I don't understand. I fly a weight-shift trike, don't make long cross-countries, and have no idea about isobaric surfaces and the like. I just need a simple answer. My home airport is at 5,800'. If the slider is at Surface I assume that's 5,800 MSL. If I move the slider to 5,000' is that below ground level and all the winds shown are meaningless? What if I move the slider to 6,400'? Most of our flying is for sight-seeing and close to the ground but we do occasionally go to 8,000' MSL to practice maneuvers.
