NWS Not-so Random Thoughts
  • Safety versus accuracy - importance
  • Watch how long you go out - extended periods of
    BR, TS etc.
  • NIL TAFs - we prefer the NO AMD TAFs when
    possible
  • Watch FAR.
  • TAFs - be specific (mushbad, fortitudegood)
  • Know the airport minimums
  • Monitor time periods

NWS Not-so Random Thoughts
  • Area Forecast Discussion - Aviation
  • Very interested in FROPA, cross-winds and not
    just IFR/VFR
  • TAF verification - impact verification when it
    comes to operational verifications
  • Ceiling or vis or wx DID/DID NOT happen
  • Should they have been forecasted YES/NO
  • Interested in working w/NWS to compare w/current
    TAFVER
  • ASOS issues
  • Web Site Standardization within NWS and regions
