New NOAA forecast product guides 3- to 4-week temperature and precipitation outlooks

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. 
 

Recent NWS meeting highlights critical role of MAPP Program projects to advance its Unified Forecast System 1/31/2017 - 2/1/2018

Recent NWS meeting highlights critical role of MAPP Program projects to advance its Unified Forecast System

NOAA, in partnership with other agencies and universities, is developing and implementing a new global prediction system by incorporating the latest research in modeling and data assimilation from NOAA and the external community. The latest key milestone is the National Weather Service (NWS) Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) Coordination Meeting to advance its Unified Forecast System (UFS), which builds on the Next Generation Global Prediction System (NGGPS) through a multi-year plan.

MAPP-Climate Test Bed research successfully transitions towards National Weather Service operations 29 January 2018

MAPP-Climate Test Bed research successfully transitions towards National Weather Service operations

The National Weather Service (NWS) recently reviewed four NOAA Climate Test Bed (CTB) MAPP program projects to evaluate whether or not some of the new research capabilities tested during the projects are ready for operational use. The review revealed that all projects had some modeling methodologies and/or prediction tools ready to be implemented in operations or that have already officially transitioned, according to the NWS reviewers.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
