MOS Weather Added to the Website and FltPlan Go for Android

IMAGEThe addition of MOS (Model Output Statistics) weather is an important enhancement to our already comprehensive weather briefing, allowing pilots to view aviation–based forecasts for up to four days out. MOS predictions apply statistical modeling to weather data from multiple sources. The result is a more realistic, reliable weather forecast.

IMAGEIMAGE FltPlan’s MOS forecasts are presented in an easy to interpret format and include ceiling, visibility, winds, temperature, and possible precipitation. Access MOS forecasts on the website from the Location Weather Page (Main Menu > Weather & Notams > Full Weather, then enter an airport under Location Weather). MOS is also available on FltPlan Go for Android under the Maps tab (MOS button), and also on the Airports tab under MOS. Look for MOS on FltPlan Go for iOS devices in the coming weeks.
