Recommended Posts

Guest DNelson

It's just a code to indicate the specific product (winds aloft forecast in this case). Some others that I can recall are:sigmets - WSconvective sigmets - WSTairmets - WApireps - UAarea forecast - FAterminal forecast - TAFand many othersLike I mentioned in an earlier reply, all these abbreviations and contractions are a throwback to the days when this stuff was transmitted and printed using mechanical teletypes. The "baud rate" was about the same as my typing speed.Dan
