Enhanced Cross Wind Calculations

We have enhanced the system for users who need to know the onset of 25 knot crosswinds as a storm approaches as well as the time of the last 25 knot crosswind as it moves away. This is particularly useful for users involved with airport/runway operations.

The report below shows the highest winds expected at 2 New Orleans airports with the runways defined.

In addition to showing the crosswind component of wind (with time) on the detailed report...

The onset and end times of 25 knot crosswinds can also be exported to an EXCEL spreadsheet.

As mentioned above this can be critical information needed for safe airport operations.
