Experimental Hazard Services -- Expanding The Concepts To Communicate Hazard Information


Hazard Services, a cornerstone of a Weather-Ready nation, promises to streamline National Weather Service operations by integrating software tools into a common interface for issuing timely and accurate hazard information. While operational work for legacy capabilities continues, experimental work is expanding the concepts to other areas. The basic process of identifying a hazard area, time frame, and other hazard characteristics is applied to diverse phenomena such as aviation weather, national precipitation forecasts, and probabilistic convective and flash flood events. We will present a sampling of applications and show how the experimental work is both using and contributing to the Hazard Services framework.
