runway observation

An evaluation of certain meteorological elements observed at a specified point on or near an airport runway.

Temperature, wind speed and direction, ceiling, and visibility are among the elements frequently observed at such locations because of the importance of these data to aircraft landing and takeoff operations.
See runway temperature, runway visibility, runway visual range.
