    Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
    In today’s video I’ll be explaining on how to decode a TAF weather report. What is a TAF weather report? How does it compare to a METAR weather report and especially how do you read it.
    TAF’s can be very long and confusing and with this video I’m trying to help you guys get a better understanding for these weather reports!
    I hope you enjoy the video and it’s been helpful to you!
    Thank you very much for your time!
    Wishing you all the best!
    Your "Captain" Joe

    2. FrankGixx99 Motovlog

      Thank you for your efforts for this Capt Joe!. You are the best!

    3. Dakota Lally

      WOW! This video started and I was super confused. But the way you break it down, that actually makes perfect sense and an extremely clever system! Probably the most difficult part is the codes for weather though. TS = thunderstorm, obviously; RA = Rain, that's simple enough; GS= small hail? alrighty then.. I'm a little fuzzy on the 2000ft versus surface wind, but I'm sure that becomes second nature with a little practice - probably the weather codes too. Oh yeah., and the cloud types.. But again, practice.

    4. Captain Keith D'Mello

      You explained it better than my groundschool instructor.

    5. Aarya Patel

      What is Delta in aviation and why do sometimes pilots say Charlie while communicating to ATC?

    6. Barani Sangaralingam

      Captain, would you fancy to make a video on Queen of the sky - Amelia Earhart's mysterious Lockheed Electra disappearance over the mid pacific in 1937?

    9. Table

    20. Iván Melon Lewis

      Ufff! Rare METARs are children’s game compared with TAFs. This is mind blowing.... Thanks Cpt. for your incredible help and smooth way to explain how to decode them. Nice flying ;)

    21. Spelldaddy

    23. Anirban Roy

    24. Jackson Ahwang

      Captain Joe...why does the Boeing 717 200 have a steep climb when take off?


      Hey Joe just one question. Why can't the TAF be represented in a more easier manner to make life easy ???? For example why cant 292320Z be written as '29 sep (for example) 11:20 pm' Why is there a hodgepodge of numbers which aims at making a rookie go mad???? Is there any particular reason to it sir

    26. Varun Murugan

      Hello captain, your videos are so unique and so informative, my love from India🇮🇳.

    31. jitendra Silwal


    32. Amlan Gupta

    39. Steven Vega

      Does wind direction provided by ATIS use true north or the adjusted magnetic variance?

      1. ZK-APA

        Atis (as well as atc reported winds)gives magnetic.

    40. Dave Wilborn

      What do you know KGup? Why suggest this to me? Most curious indeed

    41. ath kouk

      Joe expand abas gbas sbas and pbn! Please

      1. Hidden gamer

        @ZK-APA the air India crash happened on table top runway

      2. ZK-APA

        Table top runway is basically a runway over a plateau.

      Flight Schools are Closed. Captain Joe be like: Fear not students I and my KGup Channel is there for you ❤️

    53. Jake Palorski

      Have you ever landed at Prestwick (PIK)?

    54. David Elliott

      Background music too loud again. I had to restart several times to understand. Tone it down please. Sonst top wie immer.

    55. Noah Berger

      The word Cumulonimbus was simply made to make people look stupid... its not meant to be pronounced lol...

    56. Captain Nono

      8:15 Always heard that it has changed since. PROB40 does actually not mean a probability of 40%. Nowadays you will only see PROB30 or PROB40. PROB80 for example or PROB65 don't exist. So basically, PROB30 means that it's not likely to happen PROB40 means that it's really likely to happen The percents are not used anymore. 😉😉

    57. Eric Chu

      RCTP !!!!

    58. Paper man

    62. Eranda Janaka

      Mr. Joe, Is this technically possible?

    63. Edward Howe

      Why does the A380 only use the two inboard engines for reverse thrust?

      1. Mike P

        The A380 has reverse thrust only on the inboard engines.

    64. Joshua Hall a.k.a. Controlla


    65. nickong Catub

    70. Soledad Moscoso


    71. Sam Fam

      U r the best explanation guide...till this date..I hv seen many aviation videos..but not like this

    72. Aditya Playz

    73. 20CE1009_Nirmal Nallan

      you are great in explaining, you should be a teacher

    74. Glenn Watson

      In Australia we also have INTER as well as TEMPO, TEMPO being 30 to 60 minutes, INTER being 0 to 30 minutes. I believe we deviate from the ICAO standard with this additional code. We also removed this month a special forecast which was attached to the METAR called a TTF (Trend Type Forecast) which was a long lasting forecast and adopting TAF3 which is more inline with international standards.

    75. Sabitri Wagle

      Hi captain Joe i am 12 years i like your videos I was weak in maths so I am learning now so I am also thinking my motivation and trying it you can reply me.

    78. Bailey Bambery

      Joe I want to become a pilot and I was wondering if you could do a Boeing 787 Dreamliner vs airbus A350 vid

    79. D E

    86. Rashmita Saha

      Great video!!Keep it Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    87. Rashmita Saha

      Hey Joe can you make a video to what to do while a plane is Hijacked??

    88. Peppe Ddu

      This weather code-system is clearly a remnant of the past not much different from the Apollo era DSKY. Give the pilots a choice between TAF and an emoji-type system and see which one they choose.

    89. jerin john

      Captain Joe I ask one question about pilots fight each other?

    90. Seshna & Dhanvanth Balaji
