Posted: 22 Nov 2017 05:34 AM

The primary purpose of the airport weather sensors is to help the aviation industry. The stations provide information that guides what type of aviation can take place. The featured chart shows four main flight categories from the Des Moines airport for this month. VFR (Visual Flight Rules, ceilings above 3k ft and visibility more than five miles) conditions have dominated this month. These conditions look to continue for the rest of this week, making for good Thanksgiving travel for those taking to the skies.

Good = 7
Bad = 0
