National Weather Service Graphical Hazards for Aviation
Jack May, NOAA/NWS, Kansas City, MO; and S. Albersheim
For decades the primary product for domestic aviation weather advisories has been the AIRMET, a product composed of text contractions describing the hazard event over a six hour period and bounded by VOR reference points. This simple, course method of describing a hazard volume was acceptable during the teletype age, however , due to it course description, has resulted in overwarning by area and overwarning by time .
