CHAPTER TWO
DATA DISPLAYED ON WEATHER IMAGERY PRODUCTS
200.
INTRODUCTION
This chapter will introduce a number of different weather products available from the local
weather office or over other lines of communication. An understanding of these visual products,
which are produced to show a national scale, will quickly provide an aviator a broader picture of
the weather than can be gathered from METARs and TAFs.
New aviators may find these products to be the most often used weather documents for flight
planning. Once a mission is assigned, whether for training or operational flying, the next stop is
usually to find out the weather. Sometimes there will be a number of different possibilities for
operating areas or routes of flight, and the weather may be the biggest factor in deciding which to
choose. For instance, a Navy mission requiring a low-level visual navigation on a military
training route requires weather to be greater than 3000 foot ceilings and five miles of visibility.
If there are routes available to the north, east, and west, and areas of IFR to the north and east,
then a western route would be preferred. A quick glance at a Weather Depiction Chart, Low-
Level Significant Weather Prognostic Chart, or even a satellite image can provide the
information to make such a decision. Other types of missions may require knowledge of the
winds, and all aviators ought to know whether their flight will be affected by thunderstorms or
other hazards. The other products discussed in this chapter can also provide such necessary
information at a quick glance, because each type of chart is designed for a particular purpose.
Once an aviator has a general knowledge of the purpose and use of each product, it becomes very
easy to gather the required information.
