The Windy team can't be too far away; possibly ordering up some coffees before arriving at the office. No update to the models => let's see what the prognosis is!!! mmmm.....WAITING, WAITING.

RE: Please add freezing level in elevation above sea level
I think you will find that the Windy developers are limited by the forecast fields available to them. The set of fields provided within the ECMWF product set (see https://www.ecmwf.int/en/forecasts/datasets/set-i ) only has zero degree height above surface level [DEG0L].
As clever as the Windy team are, I don’t think you will get freezing level height above MSLP - at least from the ECMWF model.
RE: Aircraft ditching into swells and sea
@airlinepilot ....this is not an answer to your quest, but I found your emergency water ditching planning/assessment very useful information. I work as an aviation meteorologist for an airline with international routes and I will now follow this up with our own internal emergency operational procedures manual. I hope your question never has to come across my (or any others) desk for assessment/clarification. Safe flying!!!!
Just an added note: This weblink gives a pretty comprehensive outline of wave modelling in general and some of the wave products from the ECMWF weather agency (modelling found within Windy)
I'd probably watch from 00:28min through to about 0:40min
RE: Weather warnings new layer.
Hi, I like the visual concept and warnings display approach - well done!
I do have two first up questions:
1/ Does the warning regions extend into the southern hemisphere? From what I have seen recently, the only regions highlighting warning outlooks are across the northern hemisphere. I like the weather here in Australia, but I would have thought there would be some warning thresholds met for the southern hem.
2/ What do you use to calculate the "Fire weather warning". I will attach an image showing a fire warning for Chechnya/Dagestan this Sunday 11thNov. Yet, the forecast daytime temp is 8degreesC with RH 82% and a mean wind speed under 10kt - which doesn't equate to hazardous fire weather conditions.
I'm just enquiring as I like to concept and use of Windy platform to highlight these forecast extreme/hazardous conditions. Plus, Australia is heading towards a potentially hazardous fire weather season in the coming few months and I would like to see this plugin work.
RE: Radar data needed! Help us with the data gathering
I don't know if this site's administrator could assist you with Australian Weather Radar data/imagery for the Windy site. Handy site though with historical radar imagery going back a number of years for the majority of Aust radar locations.
RE: Cloud Tops: Incorrect values
This might help answer your question (from the ECMWF site).....see the last paragraph (Fig 3) on the following link
For Australian airports that provide the ATIS service, Airservices Australia offers ATIS reports through Twitter feeds.
Can't help you with any other countries.
