    RUNWAY REPORTS

    METAR Runway Reports may include runway reports which contain information about snow/water coverage and friction coefficient.
    A runway report consists of eight digits in five groups (RRRRERCReReRBRBR) with the following interpretation:

    RRRR

    Runway designator. The numerical identifier of the runway in question.
    88 means all runways, 99 indicates repetition of previous report.

    If there are two parallel runways, the right one is indicated by adding 50
    to its number. For example, runway 04L (or 04) is denoted by 04, whereas 54 means runway 04R.

    ER

    Type of deposit on runway.

    • 0: Clear and dry
    • 1: Damp
    • 2: Wet or puddles
    • 3: Frost
    • 4: Dry snow
    • 5: Wet snow
    • 6: Slush
    • 7: Ice
    • 8: Compacted snow
    • 9: Frozen ridges
    • /: Not reported
    CR

    Extent of deposit.

    • 1: 1-10%
    • 2: 11-25%
    • 5: 26-50%
    • 9: 51-100%
    eReR

    Depth of deposit.

    • 00: Less than 1mm
    • 01..90: depth in mm
    • 92: 10 cm
    • 93: 15 cm
    • 94: 20 cm
    • 95: 25 cm
    • 96: 30 cm
    • 97: 35 cm
    • 98: 40 cm
    • 99: Runway not in use
    BRBR

    Friction coefficient or braking action

    • 01..90: Friction coefficient times 100
      Example 37 indicates a friction coefficient of 0.37
    • 91: Poor braking action
    • 92: Poor/medium braking action
    • 93: Medium braking action
    • 94: Medium/good braking action
    • 95: Good braking action
    • 99: Unreliable measurement
    • //: Not given

    Note: CLRD may replace elements t, e and dd if the runway has been cleared of deposits. For example, 54CLRD95 means runway 04R cleared, braking action good.
