2015 Mar 03] New experimental Collaborative Aviation Weather Statement (CAWS)
The new experimental Collaborative Aviation Weather Statement (CAWS) is now being issued by the AWC. This product, now available on the AWC webpage
, will be issued for specific, high-impact, thunderstorm events focusing on the Core 29 airports and high air traffic sensitive regions. The focus is event-driven, supporting the ability to more effectively initiate, adjust, or terminate planned or active Traffic Management Initiatives (TMI) to balance traffic demand in the constraint locations.
