24 Hour Aviation Hazards Summary
  • Prior to every flight, pilots should gather all information vital to the nature of the flight. This site is informational in nature and is designed to assist pilots and aircrews for flight planning and weather familiarization. It may be used in conjunction with other preflight information sources needed to satisfy all the requirements of 14 CFR 91.103 and is not to be considered as a sole source of information to meet all preflight action. Pilots can complete their regulatory-compliant preflight briefing by using other automated resources or from Flight Service at www.1800wxbrief.com or by calling 1-800-WX-BRIEF.

.AVIATION /23Z SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/...
As of 730 PM Saturday...

With the rain and thunderstorm potential tapering off tonight 
VFR conditions will prevail for some. CRW has a chance to fog 
but did not receive any rainfall previously so they could hold 
off, therefore confidence is low in terms of that site. The rest
of the western sites should remain under VFR. CKB and EKN 
should fog (with CKB less likely), but especially EKN who 
received a decent amount of rainfall previously. BKW is up in 
the air, but they have received decent amount of rainfall, so 
VLIFR fog was inserted into the TAF. Either they get ground fog 
or low stratus (possibly both) either way VLIFR will likely 
prevail. Any fog that may develop along the valleys will likely 
lift just after sunrise, but did hold off BKW slightly longer 
due to the possibility of how dense the fog could potentially 
be. VFR will prevail areawide thereafter with chances of 
vicinity storms near BKW through the afternoon.

Experimental table of flight category objectively shows consistency
of WFO forecast to available model information:
H = HIGH: TAF consistent with all models or all but one model.
M = MEDIUM: TAF has varying level of consistency with models.
L = LOW: TAF inconsistent with all models or all but one model.
