Skew-t

NOTE****** : NOAA recently posted a note saying GFS weather model is temporarily disabled. Unfortunately I'm at their mercy and can't generate this data myself. Hopefully this situation is temporary!!. (Sep 2018 - Alan)

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 Finger Lakes Soaring Club web link for a great article describing how glider pilots use skew-t graphs to predict weather for a days flight.
