You will want to know that there is new terminology for reporting runway condition and braking action that you will hear from tower controllers and on the ATIS. There are six conditions they can report, called the Runway Condition Code (RwyCC). They will say nothing about the runway condition if it is clear and dry. The new terms are good, good to medium, medium, medium to poor, poor and nil. If the runway condition is reported as nil the runway will be closed until the condition improves. The codes can be reported for each third of a runway; approach, middle and end. For more details see http://tinyurl.com/SAFO16009
