Ice depth,brake reports in METAR APP decode ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I saw once a pilot with an app for his smartphone where you could put in those numbers from the metar and it would tell you the icy conditions for that runway.

 

Anyone who knows it ?

 

for instance R04L/420161

 

Thanks

I don't know about an app, but I know aviationweather.gov has a "decoded" function for METAR, and it will pull most major international fields (and all domestic).

 

Example:

http://www.aviationweather.gov/metar/data?ids=kiad&format=decoded&date=0&hours=0

 

Here's a good site for figuring it out, and you could easily write up your own "app" (even if you don't know code):

...and here's one way to accomplish having an "app" without code:
