Travel Tip of the Day: Get the Turbulence Forecast

WeatherGet the Turbulence Forecast
Before I fly, I always check the weather forecast for that day. I also check’s 10-day forecast so I know what to pack. To make it easier for myself and our loyal readers, I’ve created my own weather resource page, which has all kinds of handy weather maps, including a turbulence forecaster.

I use the turbulence forecaster to give me an idea of how much and when the seatbelt sign will be on during the flight—so I don’t hold it until the last-minute and then get stuck because we’ve hit some rough air. It’s especially handy while flying so if you’re on Gogo, you can keep an eye on turbulence as you fly!
