1 Local Storm Reports and Storm Prediction Center Products John Ferree NWS Severe Storms Services Leader Partner’s Meeting January 21, 2010 Atlanta, Georgia

2 Desired Outcomes Obtain partner participation in the development of a new Local Storm Report (LSR) formatObtain partner participation in the development of a new Local Storm Report (LSR) format Obtain partner participation in developing changes to severe thunderstorm and tornado watch product suiteObtain partner participation in developing changes to severe thunderstorm and tornado watch product suite

3 Drivers for Change Computer Read vs Human Read Public Information StatementLocal Storm Report Summary

4 Drivers for Change Increasing number of reportsIncreasing number of reports Need for improved geospatial accuracyNeed for improved geospatial accuracy Ability to correct mistakes (tracking)Ability to correct mistakes (tracking) Summary reportsSummary reports –One line per report (15 reports in 15 lines) –Flexible time range (severe reports 18Z – 21Z) –Flexible report type (snowfall accumulation) Multiple FormatsMultiple Formats

10 Storm Prediction Center Watches DISCUSSION...TSTMS NOW IN S CNTRL GA EXPECTED TO MOVE/DEVELOP RAPIDLY NE THROUGH LATE MORNING AS LARGE SCALE ASCENT STRENGTHENS ON SE FRINGE OF STRONG/NEG TILT AL SHORT WAVE TROUGH. COMBINATION OF INCREASING LOW LVL MOISTURE KT DEEP WSWLY SHEAR...AND STRONG LOW LVL DIRECTIONAL SHEAR SUGGEST POTENTIAL FOR A FEW SUPERCELLS WITH TORNADOES AND SMALL SCALE BOWS WITH DMGG WIND. AVIATION...TORNADOES AND A FEW SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WITH HAIL SURFACE AND ALOFT TO 0.5 INCH. EXTREME TURBULENCE AND SURFACE WIND GUSTS TO 60 KNOTS. A FEW CUMULONIMBI WITH MAXIMUM TOPS TO 450. MEAN STORM MOTION VECTOR

11 Storm Prediction Center Watches Better Meet User Needs Realign information in watch product suiteRealign information in watch product suite –Hazard info collocated with routing info –Public (SEL), Aviation (SAW), Outline (WOU), Discussion (MD), Probabilities (WPP) –Aviation information in aviation products –Meteorological discussion moved to MD –Create computer friendly products more amenable to parsing and partner redistribution Partner ideas are critical to successPartner ideas are critical to success
