ForeFlight Mobile Expands Forecast Weather Guidance with MOS

ForeFlight Mobile 6.6 also delivers a new forecast weather product called MOS for better preflight weather briefings. MOS enables local weather forecasters to create TAF-like forecasts for airports not served by official National Weather Service TAFs. MOS is great for aviation use because it updates hourly and can be highly tailored for local weather effects. Our Weather Scientist, Scott Dennstaedt, wrote this article to explain more about MOS. The MOS feature is available to Basic and Pro subscribers.

Access the MOS forecast in the Maps view by tapping on an airport.
