It’s essential to know the valid time of any weather guidance you may use. There are two choices in EZWxBrief for time, namely, device time (local time) and Zulu (GMT or UTC). In EZWxBrief you will find times listed in many locations. You have the option of displaying local or Zulu time. You can make that choice in your EZSettings as shown below.
If you set your preference to Zulu (as shown above), you will notice a Z located behind each time listed in the application. If there isn’t a Z, then you have your preferences set to the device time (local). Note, the clock used to depict the current time in the application in many locations will always be set to Zulu even if your preferences are set to local time.
Most pilots are weatherwise, but some are otherwise™
