Hey, do you guys ever visit www.windytv.com ? I've just discovered it and haven't explored its full functionality yet, but it's worth a look.

Great find.....especially love the fact it has both EC and GFS winds. Thanks.

Anyone know if you can get it to show isobars also?

Hey Don, there's a series of buttons on the right of the screen that allows you to toggle between wind, waves, pressure and a couple of others that I can't remember, because I don't have it open right now. It doesn't actually show the isobars, but the colours grade between the highs and lows and there's a scale bar on the side that shows what's what.

Don't let the bastards grind you down

Thanks but I was hoping to get isobars overlaid over the top of the wind plots.

Once your eyes adjust Don it's easy... The actual colour changes are the isobars. check the pressure scale down the bottom.
