A band of heavy rain continues to sink southward into the region. We will have to keep a close eye on this later this evening into tonight. The rest of the forecast remains unchanged with a major winter storm moving in late Wednesday and Thursday.
The National Transportation Safety Board recommends that the Federal Aviation Administration:
Require that all 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 121 operators establish procedures requiring all crew members on the flight deck to positively confirm and cross-check the Airplane's location at the assigned departure runway before crossing the hold-short line for takeoff. (A-06-83)
Require that all 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 121 operators provide specific guidance to pilots on the runway lighting requirements for takeoff operations at night. (A- 06-84)
