Using a new Web-based tool, operators who typically fly below Class A airspace can now obtain icing forecasts up to 12 hours in advance of their flight. The FAA tool provides a color weather map and a flight route display of icing potential from 3,000 to 18,000 feet. The user can select forecast times from three-, six-, nine-, and 12-hour intervals to help plan their routes. The new feature is part of a family of online FAA-developed weather products, operated by the National Weather Service and publicly available online at http://adds.aviationweather.gov/icing.
