Historical TAFS


#1

Sometimes the desire is there to find out what the forecast was for a flight involved in an incident in the past couple of days or a flight that you may have conducted yourself within the past couple of days.

weather.gov/view/validProds.php?prod=TAF

Click on the city and all TAFS issued within about 3 days prior to your click will be displayed. Note, that for MS, I found all TAFS for all airports in MS that report TAFS under Jackson. Time frame availability probably will vary TAF site to TAF site.

Between the above site and historical METARS found at uswx.com/us/stn/?code=c&n=100&stn=kjan (type in your own identifier) one can see how a forecast verified.

Nice, I searched for something like this but couldn’t find it. Good find!
I was hoping to begin a video displaying the TAF on a bad forecast day that turned out to be a nice flying day but I didn’t print a hardcopy of the TAF, and I didn’t want to paraphrase two days later when I was editing.

I always found this site to be good for historical METARS, very user friendly.
