FOMS Menu 463 (High Level Winds Program)

Note: The following descriptions represent the typical access and privileges afforded to users designated as Dispatch Managers/Supervisors. Users with dispatcher privileges will have limited access to a subset of the screens presented.


This program will allow you to see the forecast wind, temperature and turbulence values stored in the system for any location, for each forecast time period, and each millibar level. Location may be specified as an airport, a waypoint, or as Lat/Long coordinates.

Note: Turbulence values are only available for the Telvent weather source.


The only modes available are:

·        Video

·        Quit

Video Mode

Enter the airport identifier (ICAO or IATA), waypoint ID, or latitude/longitude coordinates for the point at which you wish to view the wind data. The usual convention that Southern latitudes, and East longitudes are negative must be observed.

Quit Mode

Entering <Q> from the Command Line will return the Next PROGRAM-NUMBER prompt so that you have the option of going directly to your next program if you know the menu number, or of returning to the previous menu if you simply press <Enter>.
