COVID 19 – Changes to MET forecasts

The Met Office is currently prioritising activities so that it can continue to carry out urgent governmental work. To support the Met Office and in light of current restrictions on General Aviation, the CAA has sanctioned changes including:
  • A suspension of GAMETs, Gatwick Take Off Forecasts, and aerodrome warnings for General Aviation airfields, and
  • 9 hour TAFs produced every 6 hours instead of every 3 hours.

CAA will keep these temporary changes under review and will advise the Met Office when to resume normal services.

Changes will take effect from midday on 23 April 2020.  

Further information is available on the Met Office website.
