Title:A real-time automated ceiling and visibility analysis system [presentation]
Abstract: In this paper we introduce a new real-time ConUS C&V analysis product that is planned for release to the aviation community via adds.aviationweather.noaa.gov in early 2008. The product combines METAR surface observations and GOES satellite cloud information to yield an analysis of ConUS C&V conditions on a high-resolution (5 km) grid. The analysis presents ceiling, visibility and flight category fields, as well as a low vs. normal confidence assessment for each field. All fields are refreshed at 5-minute frequency to maximize current data representativeness. This paper outlines the data processing utilized in product generation, a statistical overview of product skill, and a demonstration of product displays outlining hazardous C&V conditions.
