Skew T Android App

A very interesting Skew T App developed by Alan Walls is available at the following URL.

It provides a very easy to use diagram with a simple slider to show how conditions will vary throughout the day based on forecast temps. 

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

This App is currently free and is definitely worth a try. It can be easily be configured for the data for Muncie. 

If you are interested in additional features being suggested and future development plans, there is a thread on ras.
