The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program is hosting a webinar on the topic Fire: Modeling and Prediction Issues (Part 2) on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, 1- 2:30 p.m. ET
Stony Brook University scientists have identified an influential force in the tropical stratosphere that could help better forecast storm tracks and their extreme impacts, like future winter "bomb cyclones".
Three leaders from the weather and climate research communities share their perspective on how best to address the subseasonal to seasonal prediction challenge in a new open-access paper in Nature Partner Journals – Climate and Atmospheric Science. The authors include Annarita Mariotti, Director of the NOAA MAPP Program, as well as Paolo Ruti and Michel Rixen, who coordinate research for the World Weather Research Program (WWRP) and World Climate Research Program (WCRP), respectively.
A new study in the Nature Partner Journal Climate and Atmospheric Science describes a breakthrough in accurately predicting atmospheric river behavior several weeks ahead.
Thanks to a team of scientists led by Nat Johnson, an Associate Research Scholar at NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) and the Cooperative Institute for Climate Science at Princeton University, NOAA’s forecasters at the Climate Prediction Center (CPC) now have a new tool that provides week 3-4 guidance for their precipitation outlooks, and even better guidance for their temperature outlooks — all while helping them understand what drives the weather we see several weeks from now.
