How to read the weather report.

Hello IFC. when I am flying and I click on the airport I can see 3 things
. ATC, wether and runways. 2 of them are pretty self explanatory but how to read the wether is not. How do you read the wether. If you could can you use the one below as an example.

Learn the METAR formats :)

And here you can decode it. So will be translated to readable text.


Check out this topic for help reading METAR’s.
