Notes About This Product

If a higher flight level wind occurs other than the highest flight level wind on the inbound leg reported in Item F. in a vortex message, it is reported in the remarks section. If a surface wind occurs other than the highest surface wind on the inbound leg reported in Item D., it may also be reported in the remarks section. Our system tries to pull those remarks out if they are available. The wind columns above come from either the inbound leg or the remarks section, if the highest wind can be decoded from there. The highest surface wind, if available, is estimated by SFMR or visually. Winds are usually averaged over a ten second period in vortex messages. Extrapolated surface pressures that are noted as such in the vortex message are noted above. Our system cannot decode every extrapolation remark, so it is possible that some surface pressures above are extrapolated when they are not noted as such by our system. Check the actual raw vortex message to see if the pressure is extrapolated. The times above reflect the time noted in Item A, the time of the center fix, in the last message of the mission, not the time of any of the significant observations noted in other columns. The pressure given is the lowest and the winds the highest (as described previously) in that particular mission among the observations our site downloaded and processed. If some observations were not processed on our site then these values may not contain the most notable values.
