Enroute Icing

Enroute Icing
  • Identify data products that are useful for identifying and forecasting icing
  • Describe associated temperature and moisture profiles that can lead to organized types of icing
  • Use observational data and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) analyses to determine if icing is present
  • Develop an icing “first forecast,” identifying expected areas, flight levels, and severity based on initial conditions
  • Use the NWP forecast to modify the first forecast as appropriate
