Effective August 5, 2022 and until further notice, the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Little Rock, AR has suspended the Terminal Aerodrome Forecast (TAF) for Dexter B. Florence Memorial Field in Arkadelphia, AR (KADF). The KADF automated weather observing equipment that provides routine and special surface observations (METAR and SPECI) is being moved to another building at the airfield. The expected resumption of the KADF METAR and subsequently the KADF TAF is planned for later in 2023.
TAF service requires a constant review of weather conditions, which include weather observations (METAR and SPECI) at the airport. Upon resumption of scheduled observations at Arkadelphia (KADF) Airport, the NWS Little Rock office will resume normal TAF issuances.
Most pilots are weatherwise, but some are otherwise™
