Other Weather Sources

Many states sponsor automated weather observation and processing systems under contracts with companies such as Kavouras and Pan Am Weather systems. Many airports have a satellite fed data base which is updated on a continuous basis... which you can access via telphone through your computer modem and terminal program AT NO COST.

It is also possible to construct customized weather maps which can display not only barometric pressure, temperature, relative humidity...but also depict areas of VFR/MVFR and IFR. It is possible to depict such information on an hour to hour basis by downloading METAR reports and transferring them to software which is readily available on the internet from such places as the "Weather Net". Two such programs are "Weather Graphics" and "Digital Atmosphere"...both of which permit the creation of high resolution maps for any location...for any desired scale.
