You may be an avid viewer of The Daily EZ Weather Brief, a YouTube live program that is broadcast Tuesday through Friday at 7:30 a.m. eastern on most weeks. We appreciate all of those viewers that tune in to watch each and every morning. Starting on Monday, May 15th, you will be happy to know that The Daily EZ Weather Brief is getting "routey" as we add another episode on Monday mornings. This episode will not have the same goals as the current daily program, but will be focused on route planning with the EZWxBrief progressive web app.
The Monday morning program will start a little later at 8-8:15 a.m. eastern and will focus on route-based flight planning as it relates to weather. Essentially, a specific route will be chosen each week that will have some potential weather challenges and Dr. Scott Dennstaedt will walk you though the planning process in real time using EZWxBrief. You don't have to be an EZWxBrief subscriber to get something out of each of these videos since much of the route planning involves interpreting the weather guidance for the proposed route. EZWxBrief is just the conduit. But if you are an active EZWxBrief member (especially those new to the app), it may help you better understand how to maximize the utility of the app straight from the founder of EZWxBrief!
As EZWxBrief v2.0 gets closer to its release, the Monday morning broadcast will switch over to using the new version so you can become acclimated to the differences and new features so you can hit the ground running when it makes its debut later this summer. Hopefully this will be a useful addition to the current daily series.
You can find The Daily EZ Weather Brief on the EZWxBrief YouTube channel. If you cannot attend live, each video is recorded and will be available shortly after the live broadcast ends. Please subscribe to the EZWxBrief YouTube channel so you don't miss any new videos as they occur. For any changes to this daily schedule, visit this channel's community page. Please note that the live broadcast and recorded video is for educational and entertainment purposes only and should not be a substitute for a formal weather briefing as required by 14 CFR 91.103 (a).
If you want to learn more about weather, you can order your copy of The Skew-T log (p) and Me: A Primer for Pilots that is available in both softcover and eBook format.
