    Pilot Weather Forecasts. Weather Underground provides local & long-range weather forecasts, weatherreports, maps & tropical weather conditions for the Pilot area. To standardize thunderstorm language between weather radar operators and pilots, the use of Video Integrator Processor (VIP) levels is being promoted. The National Weather Service radar observer is able to objectively determine storm intensity levels with VIP equipment. These radar echo intensity levels are on a a scale of one to six.

An enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms is forecast across portions of the central and southern Plains Wednesday with damaging winds and very large hail being the highest threat.

Lester's "Aviation Weather" was the textbook for my last college aviation weather class. It's very good for the academic knowledge.

Edit: For the most VALUE in learning about weather, though, after you crunch your way through a book like Lester, then look for Scott D's online learning courses.

Weather radar, also called weather surveillance radar (WSR) and Doppler weather radar, is a type of radar used to locate precipitation, calculate its motion, and estimate its type (rain, snow, hail etc.). Modern weather radars are mostly pulse-Doppler radars, capable of detecting the motion of rain droplets in addition to the intensity of the precipitation.

Aviation specific charts and maps representing current and forecast conditions. Both local and national charts are available. Tabbed interface allows users to select their favorite charts and keep them open in individual tabs.

User-selected charts are retained from session. Pilot Weather: From Solo to the Airlines is close to pages of A to Z weather for pilots. Whether you are an aspiring pilot thinking about taking flying lessons or a seasoned airline professional, this book is for you.

Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward. For there you have been, and. We are excited to announce the launch of a brand new Weather Radar Operations eLearning course.

This eLearning course goes beyond weather radar Pilot’s Guides to help you improve your technique and maximize the benefits of the weather radar capabilities. It is a course to help you operate and interpret the displays across all phases of flight.

The AMS Weather Book is the most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to the weather and covers everything from daily weather patterns to air pollution and global warming and explores the stories of people coping with severe weather and those who devote their lives to understanding the atmosphere, oceans, and climate.

Airborne weather radar can’t penetrate areas of heaviest precipitation, so the pilot doesn’t receive a complete view of the weather ahead. Similarily, ground-based Nexrad weather radar has its own limitations. Like airborne weather radar, it can’t identify cloud tops, or cloud types.

radar data, and weather model guidance. In this way the NWS serves as a sort of giant wholesale weather warehouse, where the weather retailers can shop for free to produce their products and services specific to their customers’ needs.

Knowing the correct way to operate an antenna tilt will result in obtaining the optimum detection and visualisation of significant weather.

Pilots and weather provides flight planning and weather briefing for pilots, students, instructors and specialists. We also provide flight simulation with weather, tfr, radar, NOTAM overlay on Google Earth. AVIATION WEATHER is published jointly by the FAA Flight Standards Service and the National Weather Service (NWS).

The publication began in as CAA Bulletin No. 25, "Meteorology for Pilots," which at the time contained weather knowledge considered essential for .Weather Radar Handbook explains everything you need to know about using the latest generation of Doppler and polarimetric radar.

The art and science of interpreting severe weather and other radar signatures are explained throughly from an operational perspective using readily available tools such as GRLevelX and RadarScope. I've read all of the aviation-weather books people are mentioning, and I'd recommend Flying the Weather Map far above any of the others (though they're all good in their own ways, and worth reading).

The OP wanted "practical": Collins walks you through several flights in each of the four seasons, both pre-flight planning and in-flight decision-making as the weather differs from the forecast.
