AIR

The meteoblue Meteogram AIR visualises the development of the weather from the ground level to the altitude of 5’500 m. It comprises 6 individual diagrams, indicating the forecast for the following variables: Temperature, wind direction and speed, rain, cloud cover, and fluxes / radiation.

Thermals

This complex yet intuitive meteogram offers information about aviation-specific variables and indices such as surface conditions, stability indices, lapse rate, humidity, clouds, and winds.

Trajectories

The meteoblue Trajectories feature is an interactive instrument enabling balloonists and other air-sports enthusiasts to select a desired trajectory between any 2 points on a map, and explore what atmospheric conditions are expected on the defined route.

Cross-section

The meteoblue Cross-section visualises a vertical intersection of the atmosphere at a particular location at a given time. Specifically, it indicates the temperature, cloud cover, wind, and relative humidity at the defined vertical cut through the atmosphere.

Stueve & Sounding

These meteograms indicate about the stability of the atmosphere and includes details about the distribution of water vapour saturation in the air mass, and the development of the weather in the atmosphere as if measured from a sounding balloon, respectively.
