Metar for Yuma, AZ USA has Changed
« on: April 29, 2008, 02:40:46 AM »
Hi Chris!

I just thought I'd advise you, that the METAR identifier for Yuma, AZ USA has changed from KYUM, to KYNL. The change was made by the FAA, and then the NWS did the same. I found it out when checking as to why it wasn't updating on my AZ MML map, the last 69 weeks! The following link explains:

And this one shows the new KYNL identifier for Yuma, AZ USA, in use by the NWS:
