RUNWAY REPORTS

METAR Runway Reports may include runway reports which contain information about snow/water coverage and friction coefficient.
A runway report consists of eight digits in five groups (RRRRERCReReRBRBR) with the following interpretation:

RRRR

Runway designator. The numerical identifier of the runway in question.
88 means all runways, 99 indicates repetition of previous report.

If there are two parallel runways, the right one is indicated by adding 50
to its number. For example, runway 04L (or 04) is denoted by 04, whereas 54 means runway 04R.

ER

Type of deposit on runway.

CR

Extent of deposit.

eReR

Depth of deposit.

BRBR

Friction coefficient or braking action

Note: CLRD may replace elements t, e and dd if the runway has been cleared of deposits. For example, 54CLRD95 means runway 04R cleared, braking action good.


Military METAR Colour Codes

BlackAirfield closed for non-Met reasons
RED RedCloud under 200ft, and/or Visibility under 800m
AMB AmberBetter than Red, but cloud under 300ft, and/or Visibility under 1600m
YLO YellowBetter than Amber, but cloud under 700ft, and/or Visibility under 3700m.
GRE GreenBetter than Yellow, but cloud under 1500ft, and/or Visibility under 5km
WHT WhiteBetter than Green, but Cloud under 2500ft, and/or Visibility under 8km
BLU BlueCloud 2500ft or above and Visibility 8km or more
Cloud in this case is the lowest cloudbase designated as SCATTERED or worse.
