Can somebody explain to me how

KBTL 241153Z 24006KT 1/2SM FG OVC001 06/06 A2996

is LIFR on “my flightaware” page?

To me, that is IFR, not LIFR.


Aviation Flight Categories (AFC)
Category Ceiling Visibility Symbol

LIFR below 500 feet and/or less than 1 mile
IFR 500 to below 1,000 feet and/or 1 to less than 3 miles
MVFR 1,000 to 3,000 feet and/or 3 to 5 miles
VFR greater than 3,000 feet and greater than 5 miles


Wow thanks!

I thought LIFR was not as bad as IFR.
