METAR TAF source for China

Hi guys. I'm looking for a reliable source displaying METAR, TAF, SPECI on internet for China. I was using one before from China Airlines, but the page is now protected with credentials.
I know that I can get some of the major Chinese airports from NOAA or other global sources, but China has some internal feeds with more airports and data updated quicker.
Any idea?

Thanks

Have a look at http://www.amsc.net.cn

You may need to do a bit of work with translation, you can try the website or the app.

There are two AMS apps available in the Apple store, try downloading the one with a picture of a runway and control tower onto an iPad. Use Google translate camera function on your phone to make sense of it, it may be of some use.

Thanks. But it's missing some airports: example Wenzhou, WNZ ZSWZ.International weather usually gives major airports. I'm looking for a sourc, one web page if possible, with all available Chinese airport, up to date.

Thanks

Gday Phil, I use “AeroWeather” app on IOS daily. I’m not sure if they have a website portal or not, but it shows all the China TAFs and METARS no problems.

cheers

Search for an iOS app called ‘VariFlightPro’... there are numerous Chinese airports unavailable via international feeds. VariFlightPro will get you to them, along with a surprising amount of real-time flight data in that part of the world. We use it to derive current met for smaller Chinese airports that AeroWeather, Jeppesen, NOAA etc can’t.
