Whether you're heading into the summer months, or bracing yourself for a winter chill, we're seeing seasonal change across the globe. To help you navigate the conditions, you'll find some great new updates for Spidertracks' weather overlays now in your flight screen - giving you even more clarity and awareness of what might cross your flight path.

Global Lightning Heat Map

A new lightning heat map overlay shows the density of lightning in an area. Cooler colours (blue, cyan, green) will indicate areas with less lightning, and warmer colours (yellow, orange, red) will indicate areas with more.

This gives you a quick visual reference for severe weather tracking, and determining the flight risk.
