Introduction

Welcome to the AvnFPS web page for AWIPS Operational Build 9.2!

AvnFPS is designed to ease monitoring, improve production, and facilitate Quality Control (QC) of Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAFs).   The AvnFPS monitoring capability gives forecasters quick and continuous feedback on TAFs as well as associated observations.  This monitoring capability consists of a color coded scheme and is forecaster configurable.  The TAFs, surface observations, and guidance are easily accessable either in text or graphical form and can be enhanced to alert forecasters to weather significant to aviation operations.
