What happened to the Air Force Turbulence Forecast?

Those maps were so helpful since they went out 48 hours. Are they available elsewhere or totally discontinued? Are you going to substitute something else? Thanks!

They just don't make them anymore, and I emailed them and asked them to continue, no response. That being said, I think many put too much stock in them, I don't think they were that useful. You could look at the jet stream maps, they go out quite far.

The air force maps always freaked me out. They almost always had my flight look like it was going to be the bumpiest flight ever, and then nothing. Plus, I think anything 48 hours out is just too likely to change to be reliable. As long as there is a map that goes 12 to 24 hours out, that's fine with me.
