Developed by pilots, QuickWeather keeps pilots weather-ready! Quickly view weather by favorite airport or along an entire flight path using color coded METARs, TAFs (raw or translated) and imagery for United States airports.
NOTE: QuickWeather is a subscription free app, installed with DroidEFB.
METAR Cloud Coverage symbols are color coded using standard Flight Category definitions.
|LIFR Low Instrument Flight Rules||Magenta||below 500 feet AGL||and-or||less than 1 mile|
|IFR Instrument Flight Rules||Red||500 to below 1,000 feet AGL||and/or||1 mile to less than 3 miles|
|MVFR Marginal Visual Flight Rules||Blue||1,000 to 3,000 feet AGL||and/or||3 to 5 miles|
|VFR Visual Flight Rules||Green||greater than 3,000 feet AGL||and||greater than 5 miles|
By definition, IFR is ceiling less than 1,000 feet AGL and/or visibility less than 3 miles while LIFR is a sub-category of IFR.
By definition, VFR is ceiling greater than or equal to 3,000 feet AGL and visibility greater than or equal to 5 miles while MVFR is a sub-category of VFR.
The segmented circle around the outer edge of the METAR symbol corresponds to the issuance time after the hour and turns AMBER when information is 60 minutes old and RED when 75 minutes old.
Wind barbs are rounded to the nearest 5 knot increment.
A “?” is included when a reporting station indicates maintenance is needed on the system.
BLUE airport identifier indicates TAF is available.
Available data includes METAR, METAR History, TAF, animated Radar, Satellite (Infrared Color, Infrared B/W, Visible, Water Vapor), Convective AIR/SIGMET (Day 1, 2 and 3 day outlook), Icing AIR/SIGMET, Turbulence AIR/SIGMET, Freezing Level, Winds, Aviation Forecasts (Surface and Clouds), and Regional TFR Map.
