Met Office upgrade website, start pilot blog

The Met Office has upgraded its aviation website. Improvements include displaying the T+12 surface pressure chart underneath the F215 weather chart, the inclusion on the TAF and METAR list of when the data was auto-refreshed and the removal of rainfall data older than 3 hours.

The Met Office has also launched a ‘pilot blog’ on its aviation website, with topics expected to include:

  • new guidance on interpreting TAFs;
  • understanding synoptic charts;
  • introduction to Threat & Error Management principles.

The Met Office is also considering the introduction of an e-mail newsletter to be issued to UK Approved Training Organisations (ATOs) and Registered Training Facilities (RTFs), which would include topics such as:

  • future forecast developments (i.e. changes to TAF codes)
  • awareness of safety services (eg aerodrome warnings, forecast clarification)
  • links to guidance
  • aviation met courses
