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.

    Awesome app, Only thing is my phone screen is large but skew t box is too small for my screen. It would be better if its size and aspect ratio changes with screen size.

    It was a decent app, though not truly necessary as all the data can be found on the Web. But now it wants access to everything on the phone to function at all. It's not going to happen. Absolutely not. I understand the desire to log for debugging purposes, but let's just put it this way: HELL NO. You do not need this for routine operation.

    Great quick skew t , good for any airport or use lat / long . Interactive, so you can change the ground temperature / trigger point. Models including bak, named, op40 and more. Useful zoom feature, plus numerical top of lift / cloud base and temperature as well add wind information.

    Not bad for what it is. Just need some clarification on certain things, most importantly are the model times on the slider Zulu or local? It's pretty important. I see others have asked the same. With a little spiffing up here and there it could be great.

    Very useful! Maybe a short description of how to use the thermal trigger and other 'what if' scenarios in the quick start guide would be helpful to learn how to use it properly, but with a bit of patience it will come to you once you experiment with it for a bit. ### Don`t forget to give the app storage and location permissions in settings/apps/sqew-t, otherwise it will not keep your favourite locations and you will not be albe to use the map for location selection! ###

    Really nice app. However I can not access the "settings" menu to change units. I mean the menu is just not here... I'm using Samsung S4. Any idea about how to make the "settings" menu appear? [EDIT] with the help of the developer Alan, it appears that the menu button is located at the bottom left on my phone. => SOLVED :-)

    Very useful app for me as a paraglider pilot. Great, fast feedback from the developer when I mentioned two problems I had with the app. If having troubles with saving your favorites or with using the Google Map for getting the lat/lon coordinates, go into your phones Settings -> Apps -> Skew-t -> Permissions and enable "Storage" and "Your location" :-)

    Great app for determining what the weather is going to be like (if you know how to read a skew-t plot of course). Perfect for glider pilots for forecasting when the thermals will kick off and where cloud base will be.

    Two suggestions: The time for the slider needs detail. Is it referencing zulu or local? I can't tell. Also, a brief description of the models in the info wouldn't hurt. I'm familiar with some, but not all. That's easy to look up though. Aside from that, absolutely excellent app! Makes upper air analysis a breeze and a real value to GA ops. I'll be recommending it. Thank you very much for this!

    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. 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.

    ... 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
