Meteorology 101 – Sounding basics

I drew up a basic primer on how to read a Skew-T sounding. Click here or on the image to expand the image.

There is so much that you can use a sounding for, and all of that information can be derived from the three basic plots: Temperature, dewpoint and wind. A great amount of the atmospheric details that you can derive from a sounding can be found in this PDF: http://www.met.tamu.edu/class/atmo251/Skew-T.pdf
