IF METAR's are valid, always check'em!

Always had confidence in IF Wx Reporting! Just for grins I just stuck my head out the door before a Thunderstorm arrival at my place near RSW in SWFla. This time of years the directional wind shift in the Carib effects the flow and you can set your clock and expect a thunderhead build up about 3 from the SW in the afternoon and driving rain for a period just befor dinner. Heres the data. NWS automated: 1600Q (converted) 33006k/10mi broken base 030. IF: 33006k/10 mi broken base030. RSW, TAF: 31803k/6mi Tunderstorms from SW in Vic Tops to 180/base 020 est. RSW ATIS Tunderstorms Warning/Lightning useing Rwy 06. 1630Q. Thunderstorm Overhead wind shift Rwy Chg to 24. ATIS Warning, Reported: 26012k/6 mi. I watched the Rwy Color change on IF as it happened! Now that’s IF Programing Magic. Just Sayin, Max Sends
