Custom cross-sections with windy

The windy team recently released Route Planner, a tool to generate cross-sections over one or several legs of a flight. It’s seriously useful!

Give it a try with a desktop browser (support on mobile is still limited):

  • Set time and the ECMWF model, and zoom the map so all legs of the planned flight will fit
  • right-click on the start point and select “Distance and planning” in the dropdown
  • click one or several waypoints of your flight
  • at the bottom, select “Load route forecast for”: “VFR flt”
  • make sure the dropdown near the bottom shows “Directions north up”. See here why.
