When the FAA retired its Aviation Area Forecast in 2016, ForeFlight replaced its own Area Forecast and Graphical Aviation Forecast images with two new images: Cloud Coverage and Vis, Sfc Winds & Precip.
Both of these images are included in ForeFlight’s Graphical (HTML) Briefing, available to non-Dispatch customers who plan flights over the United States. To see the images, follow these steps:
- In ForeFlight Mobile, tap Settings > Flight, and ensure Briefing Format is set to Graphical (HTML).
- On the Flights view, create a flight plan over the United States and tap the Briefing button on the top right.
- In the Graphical (HTML) Briefing sidebar, tap Forecasts to see the Cloud Coverage and Vis, Sfc Winds & Precip images.
