THE AVIATION ROUTINE WEATHER REPORT
METAR provide a rapid and efficient means of transmitting the latest observed weather
information for various stations throughout the world. These reports are transmitted over
available computer/teletype circuits.
A METAR example is shown below in Figure 1-1.

METARs are used to communicate the latest observed weather to meteorologists and aircrew so
they can determine the existing weather at the destination or alternate, and whether a field is
operating under conditions of instrument flight rules (IFR) or visual flight rules (VFR). These
users can also use METARs to determine weather trends by checking the last several hours of
reports to see if they indicate improving or deteriorating conditions. Additionally, METARs can
provide a comparison between the observed and forecast weather, to determine if conditions are
actually developing as originally forecast.
