Pre-Duty Controller Weather Briefing
The Pre-Duty Controller Weather Briefing is designed to increase controller situational awareness. This video is for ATC planning purposes only. It is produced by the Center Weather Service Unit three times daily. After hours or during changing weather this briefing may not represent the latest information. This product does not replace pilot pre-flight briefings.


This video was based on the Pre-Duty/Stand-Up Weather Briefing Page, and this Worksheet is used during Stand-Up Briefings.

If your browser did not allow embedded video or it did not update when expected, please open the ZSEPDWB.mp4 file directly at
