Weatherman I totally agree with you. I was introduced to the RUC soundings (skew-T log-P diagram) during my graduate studies. The diagram takes some time to master but it is well worth it. The AvWxWork shops website covers the chart in depth and teaches how to integrate it’s information with other weather charts. I highly recommend that pilots visit the AvWxworkshop website, it’s the best weather theory education you’ll receive, trust me. I’ve just started to use the GFA area forecast tool and its been fairly accurate. Fly safe everyone.
