Aviation weather information is the best one you can get. We are so lucky having Mather Airport (symbol is KMHR) near our field so we can use current weather conditions published for pilots and apply it to our flying field. So how to get this information?
The best way to obtain actual up to the minute weather information at our flying field is to call the phone number 916-366-3371. This is the number to AWOS-3 at Mather Airport - the automated weather service design for full scale pilots. When you call, the machine plays the recorded information in the loop – if it picks up the phone in the middle of the loop, just wait till the message finishes and in few seconds it will start playing the recording again. The message usually is updated as often as every one minute.
But not all modelers are full scale pilots so how to read this? You will find the answer in this article.
