Real-Time Weather and Weather Forecasts!
EasyWeather is a product created by Aviation Direct in a joint venture with SA Weather Service to provide weather information in the planning stages of your flight as well as during flight.
A weather download overlays real time radar and satellite information on the map whether in EasyPlan or in Easy- Cockpit. It shows the forecast wind symbols on the grid.
At a glance you can view:
- Forecast weather data covering South Africa, available for different flight levels and different times; and
- These forecast symbols showing wind direction, wind speed and cloud cover displayed in a grid format and by tapping on the symbol, the information provides Temperature, Dew Point, Relative Humidity and details on Cloud Cover, Wind Speed and Direction for a particular flight level.
METARs and TAFs are shown in coded and decoded text format making this information easier & quicker to interpret in both EasyPlan and EasyCockpit.
Overlay radar images are displayed to show thunderstorms and their movements as well as precipitation and are updated every 20-30 minutes. By means of a colour code, one is able to see the degree of storm develop- ment and amount of precipitation in the area. Radar coverage is available for most of the country with radars recently activated in parts of Mozambique and Botswana.
Satellite images provide a general overview of weather conditions in Southern Africa; they are infrared images updated every 20-30 minutes.
