Turbulence Update

As of noon, the jet stream was located along the red arrows.
The clouds in the circled area reveal quite a bit of turbulence in their banded appearance. This is a typical situation when strong turbulence occurs. The jet will slowly move east through this evening.

With regard to the earlier turbulence forecast, the X symbols indicate where severe turbulence has been reported by commercial airliners (the last two from an Airbus 320 and a Boeing 737).

If you are planning to fly through the red circle,
  • Stay in your seat unless absolutely necessary.
  • In your seat, keep your seat belt on and pulled tight.
  • Do not eat a big meal immediately before boarding.
  • If you have airsickness medicine, take it before you board.
