Default ADSB Lightning

I heard a rumor that Lightning and several other products are going to be added to the ADSB data stream today. Can anyone confirm this?

We have multiple strikes just west of us, but foreflight does not support lightning yet (https://support.foreflight.com/hc/en...t-ADS-B-or-XM-) I heard the June timeframe, but not a specific date in June

I don't know about today, but Flying reports "June"...

Of course, whatever you're using (EFIS or iPad or etc.) will have to understand the new data items in order to display them.

Default Fall - Winter Timeframe

According to a friend who works on weather-in-the-cockpit policy / research at what used to be the FAA's Small Airplane Directorate (changed to something else in a big re-org last year) the new ADS-B weather product documents from RTCA* would be published in June, with final approval of the new products expected in the Sept. - Dec. timeframe.

If I understood him correctly, implementation of the products - actually uplinking the lightning, cloud-top, and icing reports - would take some time. The final docs released in the fall / winter would contain the information that EFB and MFD developers need to add support for the new products. I don't know exactly when the towers will start including the data in the FIS-B uplink.

* RTCA is an international industry standards association for avionics.

Thanks!
