FAA Private Pilot Weather Test 2
What is meant by the term "dewpoint"?
(Refer to Figure 15.) What is the forecast wind for KMEM from 1600Z until the end of the forecast?
What is indicated when a current CONVECTIVE SIGMET forecasts thunderstorms?
Which conditions result in the formation of frost?
(Refer to Figure 14.) The intensity of the turbulence reported at a specific altitude is
In which situation is advection fog most likely to form?
A temperature inversion would most likely result in which weather condition?
(Refer to Figure 15.) What is the valid period for the TAF for KMEM?
The suffix "nimbus," used in naming clouds, means
An almond or lens-shaped cloud which appears stationary, but which may contain winds of 50 knots or more, is referred to as
The amount of water vapor which air can hold depends on the
A pilot can expect a wind-shear zone in a temperature inversion whenever the windspeed at 2,000 to 4,000 feet above the surface is at least
What is a characteristic of stable air?
When speaking to an AFSS weather briefer you should state
(Refer to Figure 260, area D.) Immediately to the left of the letter D in western New York, what are the surface winds?
What cloud types would indicate convective turbulence?
One weather phenomenon which will always occur when flying across a front is a change in the
One of the most easily recognized discontinuities across a front is
SIGMET's are issued as a warning of weather conditions hazardous to which aircraft?
At approximately what altitude above the surface would the pilot expect the base of cumuliform clouds if the surface air temperature is 82 °F and the dewpoint is 38 °F?
If the temperature/dewpoint spread is small and decreasing, and the temperature is 62 °F, what type weather is most likely to develop?
A weather briefing that is provided when the information requested is 6 or more hours in advance of the proposed departure time is
(Refer to Figure 17.) Determine the wind and temperature aloft forecast for DEN at 9,000 feet.
Which type weather briefing should a pilot request, when departing within the hour, if no preliminary weather information has been received?
When may hazardous wind shear be expected?
Cumulonimbus Mamma clouds are associated with
One in-flight condition necessary for structural icing to form is
Crests of standing mountain waves may be marked by stationary, lens-shaped clouds known as
(Refer to Figure 19.) What weather is forecast for the Florida area just ahead of the stationary front during the first 12 hours?
When requesting weather information for the following morning, a pilot should request
