Ever have problems finding the correct 12-hour/24-hour prog maps to use? They are released approximately every 6 hours, but you need to know which ones are the most current, and which 24 hour maps are replaced by 12 hour maps (which are based on more recent data). The following takes out the guesswork and arranges the 12 and 24 hour maps in a "best of" sequence for your convenience and ignores the out-of-date 24 hour maps.

Disclaimer - the information above is only intended to supplement a pilot's official weather briefing. Be smart and always get an official weather briefing. From fltplan.com: When planes crash, both the FAA and NTSB go looking for a wide spectrum of information, including what kind of flight planning and weather information were obtained by the PIC. Unfortunately in some cases, the pilots have not documented that they indeed did check the weather or performed adequate preflight planning for their flight. When we say 'documented', we are referring to using a source of weather and notams that keeps a record of your weather requests and preflight planning (such as FltPlan.com, Duats, or FSS does).
