FOREFLIGHT MOBILE

WEATHER

ForeFlight Mobile features a full range of aviation weather products for comprehensive preflight planning. Access METARs and TAFs for airports, a rich library of static weather imagery, and an extensive collection of map weather overlays from radar to global icing and turbulence forecasts.

Weather in 3D Preview

Enable U.S. or Global Icing and Turbulence layers using the new layer selector in 3D Preview to display forecast weather along your route. 3D View depicts forecast weather as floating colored blocks that use the same color scale to represent forecast severity as the overhead map and Profile View. Use the altitude slider on the right to view weather at different altitudes, and tap the RTE button at the top of the altitude slider to only show weather at the same altitude as your route.

Weather in 3D Preview is included in ForeFlight’s Performance Plus plans.

Weather in Profile View

Enhance your route planning with a cross-sectional view of internet icing and turbulence forecasts displayed in Profile View. Profile View uses the same color scales as the overhead map to depict varying intensities for each layer at multiple altitudes in relation to your route line. ForeFlight uses your planned departure and enroute times to display weather over multiple forecast periods during which your flight will be active, providing a more accurate picture of changing conditions throughout your flight.
Weather in Profile View is included in ForeFlight’s Performance plans.
