Before flying, call 1-800-WX-BRIEF (1-800-992-7433).
Press 1 to get a briefer.
Ask for a terminal forecast for the nearest airport, the winds aloft and temperatures for the surface through 12000ft.
High winds aloft will tend to move downward as thermals mix up the atmosphere. Be careful of flying with light winds on the surface and high winds aloft, such as when an inversion is present : the surface winds can increase suddenly.
To read the data, use the following example: 2715-10 is translated as 270 degrees at 15 knots, - 10 degrees celicus.
