This 2015 Edition of this title includes the FAA's "Change 2" revision for Advisory Circular 00-45G.
The FAA and NWS co-publish Aviation Weather Services (Advisory Circular 00-45G), which features full-color illustrations throughout and full coverage of the weather-related tools that assist pilots with flight planning and in-flight decisions.
This text thoroughly explains the many U.S. aviation weather products and services available to pilots. Weather product examples and explanations are taken primarily from the Aviation Weather Center’s Aviation Digital Data Service website. The AC provides hundreds of weather website addresses for weather resources and definitions.
Aviation Weather Services is the main resource to use when studying for pilot certification exams and should remain a part of every aviator’s library. Includes weather station location tables, lists of contractions and acronyms, weather symbols, conversion charts, internet links, and more.

The NWS provides weather, hydrologic, and climate forecasts and warnings for the United States, its territories, adjacent waters and ocean areas. NWS data and products form a national information database and infrastructure which can be used by other governmental agencies, the private sector, the public, and the global community.
