Haha, earlier I checked the wx station at KLFT (Lafayette, La Reg'l) and it's reading 10,000F. No wind readings. Interesting.... I wasn't aware that hurricanes rained lava!

 

Around 3pm, KARA's ASOS was calling 50-ish with gusts to 75kts.

How do you know if the TAF is unreliable, or must you also always check the metar for the $?

 

The TAF is always unreliable. The $ at the end of the METAR means the automated equipment needs maintenance. Since the TAF is a forecast product, produced by a person, it will never have a $ at the end.

TAFs are always unreliable. They're forecasts. You can never trust them fully, especially if they're forecasting clear and P6SM and it's getting near 4AM.

 

The MSY METAR is obviously wrong, because the equipment has failed. All it really says is that most of the equipment is not working. It does give enough information for initiating an instrument approach under Part 135, though. All you absolutely have to get are the visibility and the altimeter setting, if you're doing a precision approach, and Armstrong has several ILS approaches.

I'm sitting in a hotel in Houston right now. The wind isn't really that bad, but there is quite a bit of storm surge in the low lying areas. The Galveston AWOS is out of service now.

 

Stay safe. Sounds like (in the news) there are already attempts to safe people... How about that freighter out in the gulf, I hope they are ok.
