2021 Spring Forecasting Experiment
The NOAA HWT Spring Forecasting Experiment is a yearly experiment that investigates the use of convection-allowing model forecasts as guidance for the prediction of hazardous convective weather. A variety of model output is examined and evaluated daily, and experimental forecasts are created and verified to test the applicability of cutting-edge tools in a simulated forecasting environment. The variety of model output allows us to explore different types of guidance, including products derived from both ensembles and deterministic forecasts, and to provide focused feedback to model developers.
The 2021 Spring Forecasting Experiment will be held virtually from May 3rd through June 4th. More information about this year's Experiment can be found below in the 2021 Spring Forecasting Experiment Operations Plan (see "Plans and Reports" menu above).
