Critical weather intelligence provider Baron has added global turbulence and icing forecast data to its Baron Weather API for aviation data offering. The data set provides an efficient way for developers of flight tracking and planning services to integrate aviation weather information. The addition means customers can now create a vertical profile of turbulence (clear-air and in-cloud), icing, plus winds and temperature aloft, along their entire routes. Each of the new products provides a 36-hour forecast. Baron Weather API now includes a global forecast of clear-air turbulence (CAT) at a specific time in the future. The new data depicts clear-air turbulence at altitudes from flight levels 240 to 450. Global forecasting is also available for in-cloud turbulence. This product depicts in-cloud turbulence at various altitudes, from flight level 100-300, at a specific time in the future. Also new to the Baron Weather API data offerings is a global forecast of future icing conditions. The new product depicts icing at altitudes ranging from flight level 60 to flight level 300.
