We Fund Research to Improve Your Weather Forecast

The NOAA Weather Program Office funds research to improve weather forecasts, save lives, and reduce property damage. We work throughout the Weather Enterprise to foster research that can be transitioned into operational weather forecasts so the public can be better prepared for weather phenomena.
