Aeronautical Climatology

Although air traffic primarily requires information about the current weather conditions and weather forecast for a certain period, airport climatology also makes a significant contribution, primarily for flight planning and other activities related to air traffic.

Airport climatology indicates what kind of weather conditions are to be expected at an airport at a certain time of the year: temperature range, amount of precipitation, prevailing winds or distribution of any other meteorological parameters.

Apart from flight planning, airport climatology is important for daily forecasting as an additional tool the forecaster can rely on.
