NWS posts aviation warnings

Pilots now have online access to the Aviation Digital Data Service, the National Weather Service's advisory for aviators.

'Our forecasters regularly analyze hazardous weather and provide warnings of thunderstorms, icing, wind shear and other flight hazards that pilots and air traffic controllers need most,' NWS director John J. Kelly Jr. said. 'ADDS is a part of our commitment to use technology to make this weather information easy to use and readily available.'

The data can be found at adds.awc-kc.noaa.gov. Users can access the information by browser using Netscape Navigator Version 4.06 or higher or Microsoft Explorer Version 5.0 or higher.

ADDS features user-friendly graphics of specific routes to display forecasts, officials said. The site's development is continuing through a partnership between the NWS Aviation Weather Center, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Forecast Systems Laboratory, the National Center for Atmospheric Research Applications Program and the Federal Aviation Administration Aviation Weather Research Program.
