Aviation Weather

It's hard to find a pilot who's not also somewhat of a weather geek. There's good reasons for this. While pilot's may be naturally curious about things in general, weather is one that can make things difficult or maybe kill you. Since this is considered a poor outcome for a flight, we like to look at and understand weather.
