METAR weather report URUGUAY

METAR es el estándar internacional del formato del código utilizado para emitir informes de las observaciones meteorológicas en los aeródromos.

Consta de una sigla traducida del francés (MÉTéorologique Aviation Régulière) como Informe meteorológico aeronáutico de rutinaria (en inglés: METeorological Aerodrome Report).

Los reportes METAR usualmente vienen de los aeropuertos y típicamente se emiten cada media o una hora, sin embargo, si las condiciones cambian significativamente pueden actualizarse con reportes llamados SPECI.

El código SPECI es el nombre en código dado al METAR emitido en una rutina no programada especial, ocasionada por cambios en las condiciones meteorológicas.

La sigla SPECI se traduce como Selección Especial del Reporte Meteorológico para la Aviación.

METAR es usado por los meteorólogos para ayudarse en los pronósticos del tiempo, y fundamentalmente por los pilotos de las aeronaves para conocer la meteorología de los aeropuertos de destino y actuar en consecuencia.

El formato que ha sido introducido en 1968 se consigue para determinado aeródromo por su código ICAO/OACI y contempla entre otros datos: viento, visibilidad, nubosidad y temperatura.
 


METAR is a format for reporting weather information.

A METAR weather report is predominantly used by pilots in fulfillment of a part of a pre-flight weather briefing, and by meteorologists, who use aggregated METAR information to assist in weather forecasting.

Raw METAR is the most popular format in the world for the transmission of weather data.

It is highly standardized through International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which allows it to be understood throughout most of the world.

METAR reports typically come from airports or permanent weather observation stations.

Reports are typically generated once an hour; if conditions change significantly, however, they can be updated in special reports called SPECIs.

Some reports are encoded by automated airport weather stations located at airports, military bases, and other sites.

Some locations still use augmented observations, which are recorded by digital sensors, encoded via software, and then reviewed by certified weather observers or forecasters prior to being transmitted.

Observations may also be taken by trained observers or forecasters who manually observe and encode their observations prior to transmission.

The METAR format was introduced 1 January 1968 internationally and has been modified a number of times since.

A typical METAR report contains data for the temperature, dew point, wind speed and direction, precipitation, cloud cover and heights, visibility, and barometric pressure.

A METAR report may also contain information on precipitation amounts, lightning, and other information that would be of interest to pilots or meteorologists.
