Tactical Decision Aid from the NWS

VERY COOL information provided in a one web page format.

srh.noaa.gov/zhu/www/tda.php … ywind=both

Change the airport code to a weather reporting airport, push enter and all runways will be displayed. I have the link set for zulu, but you can change it to local time. Squares are color coded for flight rules which parameters are displayed within the page (scroll down a touch)

very cool!


#3

Bright colors and lots of blocks confuse me. I’ll take a big list of undecoded METARs and TAFs along with a whole bunch of charts I don’t understand. :smiley:


#4

:smiley: I usually chose the undecoded option with DUATS or on the aviationweather.gov site, but this here looks pretty neat. The undecoded TAF and METAR are at the bottom too.


#5

Ditto here, un-encoded briefings for me, decoded too cluttered and takes more than one line for METARS. In this case, less is better!

What I like the best was the results of the Xwind component computations especially for airports with multi crossing runways. Haven’t seen any other site give it in such a easy request format.
