In aviation, weather service is a combined effort of the
National Weather Service (NWS), Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA), Department of Defense (DOD), other
aviation groups, and individuals. Because of the increasing
need for worldwide weather services, foreign weather
organizations also provide vital input.
While weather forecasts are not 100 percent accurate,
meteorologists, through careful scienti.c study and computer
modeling, have the ability to predict weather patterns,
trends, and characteristics with increasing accuracy. Through
a complex system of weather services, government agencies,
and independent weather observers, pilots and other
aviation professionals receive the bene.t of this vast knowledge base in the form of up-to-date weather reports
and forecasts. These reports and forecasts enable pilots to
make informed decisions regarding weather and flight safety
before and during a flight.
