Abstract : TAFVER II is an automated quality control program designed to provide headquarters staff (at HQ USAF/XOW, HQ Air Weather Service, and the Major Command Directorates of Weather) a tool they can use to measure the quality of weather support provided by the Air Force weather community. The TAFVER 11 program, run by the USAF Environmental Technical Applications Center (USAFETAC) at Scott AFB, verifies all Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAFs) issued by Air Force weather forecasters, providing there are corresponding observations against which to verify them. TAFVER 11 accommodates customer-tailored output by incorporating command-unique category thresholds. This technical note tells users how the TAFVER II program verifies weather forecasts and explains the output statistics. Appendices provide major command verification categories and USAFETAC's weather station information databases.
