Skew-T Log-P diagrams are commonly used for weather analysis and forecasting. They graph weather balloon data to show the vertical profile of the temperature and dew point through the atmosphere.

See the following Soaring Society of America web link for a great article describing how glider pilots use skew-t graphs to predict weather for a days flight.

Great stuff Helps me decide if I should do the 200km drive to the airfield.

Run perfect on Note3 Best forecasting application for paragliding. Great job ! THANKS

Michael Jahn

What I have been waiting for! Thanks for bringing this app to the Playstore. It runs perfectly on my Note II.

David Kane

Cool app... I'm a weather forecaster and found this app to be pretty cool, especially with the different models available for forecast skew-ts... Unfortunately, it keeps crashing on my Galaxy S4 whenever I try to move the sliders.

Not quite working.. I like the idea behind this, but I'm not sure why it won't load any data for me. I'm in Canada, so I tried Canadian airport codes and then I tried some American airport codes, still no data.. update: my firewall was causing some issues, after disabling it things work, I'll sort it out on my end. My apologies!

Christopher Gough

Nice. Looking forward to using this in the summer.

Ambrus Vancso

Brilliant This makes it super easy to review a Skew-T. Very convenient. Thanks for the development!

Sean Fidler

Incredible Great app, very well written a and continuously improved...

Mats Henrikson

Works well! This works really well for getting an idea of the forecast! Pinch to zoom is great to get a better look (that many might not have realised you can do). It's a fantastic tool for soaring, thanks for writing it. :)

Cool App for soaring forecasts! Thanks for putting this together. -Echo

Mostly good but... ... It would be nice if it covered all time periods. I appreciate the idea behind it appears to be for glider pilots but as a meteorologist this is actually a good app but it's annoying I can only view 8am to 7pm. All time periods are available on the ruc soundings site so it would be easy to incorporate I would've thought? I'm not sure what model it uses for bak40/13 but it never loads any data for on those models

SkewT Great and needed with all the Java headaches. However, it needs custom dewpoint entry to fine tune cloudbase(LCL/CCL) to have the full functionality of the FSL Java plots.

Brian Golden

Excellent useful app I have used this app for quite some time and find it very easy to use. I use it primarily to forecast cloud layer heights and freezing level for flight planning.

Matthew Smith

Amazing resource for flyers Thanks for this. I fly paramotor and paraglider so this tool is brilliant to provide a indication if the winds aloft.

Ben Hirashima

Thanks to the dev for a wonderful app. I reported a couple of bugs, and he kindly fixed them.

Alan Kubiak

Great app, thx

Boyan Boyanov

Does its job well Full graphical interface for RUC soundings, much better than fiddling with the tiny lettering and buttons on the NOAA site. Plus it displays the local time. Developer is wonderfully responsive. And the app is free. Not much more you could ask for.

Lord Ruthven

Really good! Also quick and good support! Thanks for the app.

Shunondo Basu

Pretty well made I'm quite impressed with the graphing and plotting abilities of the skew-T. A must have for any meteorologist or weather enthusiast. Just wish it were made to conform to material design guidelines!

Dima T

The best app for the diagrams

Nimbus David

Excellent App. Simple and very functional. Highly recommend.

Jon G

Best gadget out there Great to be able to do a quick analysis on the go!

Timothy Green

Pilots sent me here for weather info... Accurate and fun to use!

Mine Pavlovski

Great and very useful

Andy Pag

Wished it worked Can't get it to recognise my local airport codes in Northern Ireland, and the map tool to find locations seems unfinished. Designer very responsive, but those suggestions didn't help. Great potential but some way to go. Hoping for an update.

SEP'16 EDIT: need to manually give the app location and storage permissions to work properly, it does not seem to ask for them during installation.

Rene Gade

Brilliant. Well done Alan. 12/9/2016 Alan, tried to load on my Galaxy Note 10. 1 2014' Drop down menu (settings) does not show up and the ceiling info is not presented . No problems on galaxy s5 phone. Can this be remedied?

East Bay Hang Gliding

Amazing! I'm a hang glider pilot and have been searching for this information in a simple to use platform. This app has now taught me so much and will increase my knowledge on the day. Thanks so much for the info!!! GET A DONATE BUTTON!!! Worth it!!!

Sergey Kataev

Thanks mate Awesome, I couldn't have written this better :D
