Icing Potential

Icing is absolutely critical in aviation and in-flight icing on planes are the cause of multiple near-accidents or even crashes. Consequently, it is crucial for aviation to have reliable icing forecasts predicting the expected occurrence of icing on different altitudes and allowing for early circumnavigation.

Our icing parameter is available globally on multiple pressure levels.

Below showing an example screenshot of the icing potential at 500hPa displayed via the powerful Meteomatics WMS interface. Very well visible the icing potential along the cold front associated with the strong low pressure system West of Ireland.
