This tool provides all of the features of the old Flight Path Tool
applet and more. It still allows you to view data along your route of
flight. You can still view icing, turbulence, temperature, winds,
humidity, AIRMETs, METARs, TAFs, etc. both horizontally and
vertically. Now, however, you get many more features not available in
the applet. In the future, we'll be adding even more features to the
application but not to the applet. Take a look.
The National Convective Weather Forecast (NCWF) product contains a
convective hazard detection and 1-hour forecast. The current
hazard field is colored green to red for increasingly strong
convection and the 1-hour forecast hazard region is outlined with
The METARs Java Tool allows users to view METARs graphically and
textually at the same time with only the variables that you desire.
You can zoom into particular regions, turn on temperature, weather,
and winds, check ceiling height and visibility. The tool is remarkably
This tool provides users with a quick interface to retrieve
text-format Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAFs) for a particular
region. Simply zoom into your flight area and quickly read the TAFs
for departure, destination, and alternate airports.
The PIREP Tool allows users to view PIREPs graphically and textually
at the same time and provides map overlays and zooming capability. You
can also remove displayed PIREPs for particular altitude ranges if,
for instance, you do not care about turbulence above 20,000 feet.
The AIR/SIGMETs Tool allows users to view AIRMETs graphically and
textually at the same time and provides map overlays and zooming
capability. You can also remove displayed AIRMETs for particular
altitude ranges if, for instance, you do not care about icing above
