Additional Info:
Terminal Aviation Forecasts (TAFs) are issued for a 5 nautical mile radius of a major airport. They include forecast weather conditions (wind, visibility, sky cover, precipitation) for a 24 hour period. The forecast is based on the METAR coding format, but there are some minor differences: P6SM means "greater than 6 miles," FM, BECMG, PROB and TEMPO groups are followed by valid Z times (i.e. TEMPO 2123 means from 2100Z to 2300Z.)
