This tool consists of three sections.
1) Location Data:
The geografic coordinates and the field elevation of Sykdive Arizona together with apparent sunrise, solar noon, and apparent sunset.
2) On the Ground:
The conditions on the ground provide information on temperature, wind direction and wind speed. Two additional calculations provide information on the density altitude and (if temperatures are above 80°F) the heat index.
The conditions aloft provide information on ceiling and clouds as well as a table with information on wind direction, wind speed, temperature and wind chill at differnt altitudes. The wind chill will only be calculated for temperatures below 50°F and wind speeds above 3 mph.
If available for the area around Eloy Municipal airport, we use weather data provided by
rucsoundings.noaa.gov (for winds aloft; read their disclaimer) and aviationweather.gov (for conditions on the ground; read their disclaimer).
We also started experimenting with using weather data for conditions on the ground from AXIS's own PWS, as provided by
