The Area Weather App is used to display METAR and TAF data for a specified Area.
The Area is defined by a METAR station and a radius around that Station. The weather data can be displayed as a list of Stations, with the Stations shown on a map or as Raw METAR and TAF Data.
The Area WX shows basically the same weather seen on the Current WX and METAR pages. It is displayed here in a different format that gives the pilot a different perspective. The colored boxes highlight the flight category by region.
I like to just look at the raw data screen for a quick over view of current conditions and also to get a look at current TAFs in the area.
