NOAA’S GRAPHICAL FORE­CASTS

Flying - - Inbox -

I used to love the text-based prod­ucts [“NOAA Re­places Text-based Area Fore­casts with Graphical Fore­casts,” April 18, 2017]. When they started is­su­ing plain-text trans­la­tions on some Web ser­vices, I used to look down on them. It was to­tal pi­lot snob­bery though. (How­ever, once you know all the codes, they are re­ally easy to read and copy down.) What­ever we can do to get the most in­for­ma­tion in the clear­est way into pi­lots’ brains trumps my feel­ings of su­pe­ri­or­ity ev­ery time.
