This year’s convective storm season has already brought a wave of severe weather activity across the Midwest and East Coast.

Additional resources, including the “Thunderstorms” section of the recently overhauled aviationweather.gov website, are also available to safely guide operators across the national airspace system. “Knowledge is power,” emphasizes Wes Adkins with the National Weather Service’s Aviation Weather Center. “Use all the tools at your disposal.”

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
  • Wes Adkins, national aviation meteorologist for the National Weather Service’s Aviation Weather Center
