At the height of the spring severe weather season, the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed hosts multiple real-time, forecasting, and warning experiments to evaluate the operational utility of new science, technology, and products.
NOAA NSSL, the NOAA National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center and the NOAA NWS Norman Forecast Office lead the effort.
The Spring Experiments are a unique opportunity for researchers and NWS forecasters to work side-by-side to evaluate emerging research concepts and tools and participate in experimental forecast and warning generation exercises. Forecasters have direct access to the latest research developments and scientists gain the knowledge to formulate research strategies with practical benefits. This collaborative approach ensures an effective, two-way path between research and operations which ultimately improves NWS forecasts and warnings.
