  • The Turbulence Layer provides forecasted areas of turbulence across the globe from 10,000 feet to 39,000 feet with turbulence intensity color coded.
  • The Turbulence Layer is derived from the Global Forecast System (GFS) numerical model with a legend provided for light, moderate and severe turbulence when viewed via the TOPS platform.
  • The Turbulence Layer shows areas of forecasted turbulence across the world for Mid-Levels (In-Cloud) at the following levels: FL100, FL140 and FL180 as well as High-Levels (Clear-Air) at the following levels: FL240, FL300, FL340 and FL390.
  • The Turbulence Layer provides forecasted areas of turbulence for all levels at the following: 6 hours, 12 hours, 18 hours, 24 hours, 30 hours and 36 hours in advance.
  • The Turbulence Overlay is updated 4 times per day via the GFS numerical model 00Z, 06Z, 12Z and 18Z data. The refresh time and rate for the Turbulence Overlay via TOPS is updated per the following: 05:05Z, 11:05Z, 17:05Z and 23:05Z every day.
