Mobile weather reports

ITYT has a new service allowing users to get a quick METAR and TAF reports via email, especially via a 2-way mobile email device like a phone or RIM.

Just send a blank email to wx@ityt.com with a four-digit weather station code in the subject line such as "KHOU" or "KAUS." Within a couple minutes, ITYT's WX service will reply with METAR and TAF information for that weather station.

Sample email response:
Quote:
From: ITYT WX <wx@ityt.com>
Subject: WX KHOU

METAR:
2003/02/09 09:53
KHOU 090953Z 06005KT 10SM OVC016 07/03 A3008 RMK AO2 SLP190 T00670028

TAF:
2003/02/09 08:59
KHOU 090859Z 090906 05006KT P6SM OVC016
TEMPO 1014 4SM -RA BR
FM1400 16005KT P6SM OVC015

This service has been much improved and response time has been decreased from 3 minutes to an average of 30 seconds.

For more info, see the official web page for ITYT's e-metar: METAR and TAF via e-mail
