An Automated Weather Observing System, or AWOS, as defined by the FAA, is a suite of sensors, which measure, collect and disseminate weather data to help meteorologists, pilots and flight dispatchers prepare and monitor weather forecasts, plan flight routes, and provide necessary information for correct takeoffs and landings.

There are six standard categories of Automated Weather Observing Systems, and a limitless number of customized weather stations:
AWOS I:
Wind speed, wind gust, wind direction, variable wind direction, temperature, dew point, altimeter setting, density altitude.
AWOS II: AWOS I + visibility, and variable visibility.
AWOS III: AWOS II + sky condition, and cloud height and type.
AWOS III-P: AWOS III + present weather, and precipitation identification.
