Solved Airports labeled VFR when clearly not VFR
The one major problem this website/app has is displaying true VFR/MVFR/IFR/LIFR tags. It would be great if this could be properly implemented!!
The requirements are:
LIFR Low Instrument Flight Rules, below 500 feet AGL and-or less than 1 mile
IFR Instrument Flight Rules, 500 to below 1,000 feet AGL and/or 1 mile to less than 3 miles
MVFR Marginal Visual Flight Rules, 1,000 to 3,000 feet AGL and/or 3 to 5 miles
VFR Visual Flight Rules, greater than 3,000 feet AGL and greater than 5 miles
On another note, which is a different problem.. I just posted about Fairbanks being IFR and the METAR reporting less than a mile vis while Windy shows currently 125 miles of visibility. So there's something there with the reporting not correlating or using the METAR to update airports.

There are still some problems.
e.g. Fumicino Airport is VFR
as clouds bellow 3000 ft are not covering half of the sky (SCT=3~4/8).
