Aviation Routine Weather Report

Aviation Weather Reports Weather Briefings How to Obtain Phone: 1-800-WX-BRIEF DUATS: www.duats.com www.1800wxbrief.com (replacing DUATS) Various websites

3 Types Standard: a complete briefing to be obtained before every flight, especially when departing soon Outlook: provided when it is 6 or more hours before proposed departure time Such as for the following morning Abbreviated: used to update a previous briefing & to supplement mass disseminated data Weather Briefings-Phone Initially identify yourself as the pilot State whether the flight is IFR or VFR When telephoning pilots should initially state the

intended route of flight & destination State the aircraft N-number or pilots name Weather Briefings-Phone What to say: I would like to get a standard briefing for a VFR flight from to to at (altitude), in a (type of aircraft), N , departing (time) Z, time in route (hours, minutes).

Direct User Access Terminal System DUATS for short Used to conduct complete weather briefings Access through a personal computer Can also file, amend, or cancel flight plans Aviation Routine Weather Report METARRoutine Weather Report SPECInonroutine weather report Link to Abbreviations http://www.moratech.com/aviation/metaf-abbrev.html ICAO Station Identifier In the 48 states, three letter identifier is prefixed

with a K KBPK KABQ KSGF Alaska and Hawaii starts with P followed by an A or H PHNL In Canada the prefixes are CU, CW, CY, & CZ Modifier

AUTO Identifies the report as an automated report with no human intervention The type of sensor equipment will be encoded in the remarks section Absence of AUTO indicates the report was made manually or had human augmentation COR Identifies the report as a corrected report to replace an earlier report with an error Wind If the wind is less than 6 kts & the wind is varying in

direction,the contraction VRB is used for wind direction VRB04KT means wind is variable in direction at 4 kt Calm wind is defined by speed less than 3 kts and is coded as 00000KT Gust is a variation in wind speed of 10 kt or more between peaks and lulls A gust is reported by the letter G after the wind speed, followed by the highest reported gust 21013G30KT means the wind is from 210 true at 13 kts

with gusts to 30 kts Wind If the wind is variable by 60 or more and the wind is greater than 6 kt, a variable group consisting of the extremes of the wind directions separated by V will follow the wind group 32012G22KT 280V350 means the wind direction is from 320 true at 12 kt, gusts to 22 kt, wind direction variable between 280 and 350 true A SPECI will be issued if the wind direction changes by 45 or more in less than 15 min. and the sustained

winds are 10 kt or more throughout the wind shift Visibility If tower or surface visibility is less than 4 SM, the lesser of the two will be reported in this element, and the greater will be reported in the remarks Automated reporting stations will show visibility less than SM as M1/4SM and visibility of 10 SM and greater as 10SM Automated reporting with more than one sensor, site-specific visibility lower than visibility shown in the body will be shown in

the remarks When visibility is less than 7 SM, the restriction to the visibility will be shown in the weather element. If volcanic ash, low drifting dust, or snow is observed, those restrictions are reported even if greater than 7 SM Runway Visual Range (RVR) When reported, is in the format: R(runway)/(visual range)FT R identifies the group followed by the runway heading, a /, and the visual range in

feet R32L/1200FT runway 32 left visual range 1200 feet R32/M0600FTrunway 32 visual range is less than 600 ft Weather Phenomena Intensity Proximity Descriptor Precipitation Obscuration to visibility Other weather phenomena
