[IDV #RHR-598173]: COSMIC data: link from trajectory plot to skew-T plot

Hi Dave-

Glad this is working for you.

If you select the SkewT field and the SkewT display, you will be able to click 
on the point to switch to that profile.  It is separate from the track display.

No way to do that at present, but it's a good suggestion.  We'll add that to 
the list.
