All major airports provide standard weather information to help flight planning and ensure safety. The information is summarized in technical reports like:
METAR = the official weather report of an airport obtained by measurements.
TAF = Terminal Aerodrome forecast: Shows the official aviation forecast issued by the airport.
SIGMET = official map of the significant meteorological phenomena relevant to aviation.
NOTAM= notices to Airmen, filed with an aviation authority to alert aircraft pilots of potential hazards along a flight route or at a location that could affect the safety of the flight.
The METAR weather reports provide actual observation of flight conditions, military flight conditions, cloud base height, wind speed and direction and the visibility in meters. These variables are visualized on our weather maps for all airports worldwide. These information are especially useful for aviators to plan their flights. We appreciate any suggestions of our professional users.
