Just a heads up to anybody using the FYTTE5 Arrrival via MYRRS @ KORD there is going to be winds of about 74 kts.

As of right now!

I am at 31000 still cause my VNAV hasn’t started yet but it’s been pretty bad since Nebraska.

That’s because you’re flying through the jetstream. Completely normal.

It’s quite poor when it comes to weather in that area today.

I was using that STAR hours ago, there were about 95kts of wind at 41,000ft.

Yea, 74kts is actually below average lmao

I’ve seen 120kts in that area
