TAF CSV Format
- Each row of TAF data is returned as a separate line and
TAF fields are separated by a comma ','.
The TAF fields are always returned in the order indicated by
the TAF Field Description
Any fields that appear to be missing are either not reported in the TAF or
were not parsed.
The output includes some statistics about the request, such as the number of
results and the time taken to fulfill the request.
- All data is
ordered by descending observation time.
- An error message is generated when
an error in the input request prevents the retrieval of data.
If a constraint parameter is missing
and a default value exists, an appropriate warning message is
produced and the default request is fulfilled.

TAF field names, their units and types, please refer to: TAF Field Description
