METAR links - current observations

Unread post by bimjim » Mon Oct 10, 2011

Current observations - 4-character ICAO codes required
http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/metar.shtml

METAR, TAF, PIREP, AIRMET, SIGNMET, NOTAM, Forecast area, decoded with more info - 4-character ICAO codes required
http://www.wunderground.com/Aviation/index.html

Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS), full weather info for multiple locations (separate ICAO IDs with a space)
http://aviationweather.gov/adds/tafs/

Time and distance calculations - great circle distance, should only be used as a guide, includes a 15 minute bias on takeoff

Weather METARs for any station in the world:
http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/XXXX.html
(where XXXX is the 4-letter ICAO code).
eg: Barbados is
http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/current/TBPB.html

And/or... send an email to wx@flightaware.com and place the 4 letter designator in the SUBJECT field (eg. TJSJ). For multiple locations, simply separate the ICAO identifiers with a space (eg. TJSJ TAPA TBPB). They will email back the latest METAR/s and TAF/s. Works great for Smartphones.
