We received a high priority message from flight ops and there has been safety alerts sent out to renew an emphasis on briefing turbulence forecasts and anticipated adverse ride reports with the cabin. We have WSI weather apps on our iPads with forecast turbulence. On the tracks I have found them to be a bit conservative but if you see a wide range of altitudes with turbulence forecast and the jet stream is running fast then you can take those reports as true.

A month or so ago Gander and Moncton were reporting some severe turbulence SIGMETS. They made sure we had them then they were great about reporting where the good rides were.

Cooperate and graduate. We all want the best for ourselves, pur crews and our passengers.
