Eric’s Release Summary Notes:

  • The major change in this release is the overhauled Imagery section.
  • 8 new weather products are included which extend the forecast graphics period up to 7-days.
  • My favorite new category GFS MOS (Ceiling and Visibility Forecasts). This ties in with the MOS (Model Output Statistics) forecast product introduced previously. See the Imagery section of our ForeFlight training course, for more details.
