1 WGNR - JSC6 July Working Group on Nowcasting Research Annual Report to JSC Paul Joe

2 WGNR - JSC6 July Outline Membership JSC5 Action Items Projects – Near Past, Current and Future Other Activities Planned Meetings

3 WGNR - JSC6 July Approval/Advice from JSC 1.Membership Scheduling? 2.Lake Victoria (defer to 4.7) 3.WGNR Meeting – EA 2014? 4.WSN15 or WSN16 – begin to prepare? 5.WWOSC Nowcasting White Paper? 6.Merging?

4 WGNR - JSC6 July Tom Keenan Steve Goodman

5 WGNR - JSC6 July Startup in 2003 Staggered membership began in 2011 Now organized to change every 4 years* Chair in year preceding year 2 term rule*

6 WGNR - JSC6 July JSC5 Action Items 36 – CIMO Link 38 – Lake Victoria 39 – Contribute to WIGOS

7 WGNR - JSC6 July CIMO Link Link should be established with CIMO to look into defining a standard for operational instrumentation. Action to: Chairs of JWGFVR, WGNR, CAS President DONE! JWGFVR is a member of the Solid Precipitation Inter-comparison Experiment International Organizing Committee of CIMO (June 2013) Defer to JWGFR report

8 WGNR - JSC6 July – Lake Victoria Executive Council requested WWRP to investigate a Lake Victoria Basin Understanding project. UKMO noted gap in lack of evaluation process for local forecasts in Lake Victoria region, JSC asked to consider establishing a field RDP. On-going Discussed under future project 4.7

9 WGNR - JSC6 July Contribute to WIGOS JSC recommended provision of quantified WWRP requirements as input to WIGOS. Provided input to CBS/SBO Weather Radar Data Exchange Initiative - DONE Plan is to organize various FDP science and monitoring leads to draft user requirements table for nowcasting data requirements for fine scale observation and prediction –On-going/see next slide

15 WGNR - JSC6 July FROST-2014: To improve and exploit: – high-resolution deterministic mesoscale forecasts of meteorological conditions in winter complex terrain environment; – regional meso-scale ensemble forecast products in winter complex terrain environment; – nowcast systems of high impact weather phenomena (wind, visibility, precipitation type and intensity etc.) in complex terrain. To improve the understanding of physics of high impact weather phenomena in the region; To deliver deterministic and probabilistic forecasts in real time to Olympic weather forecasters and decision makers. To assess benefits of forecast improvement (verification and societal impacts) To develop a comprehensive information resource of alpine winter weather observations;

30 WGNR - JSC6 July Lake Victoria Project Proposal 1.The Nowcast System 2.The SWFDP 3.The Field Project 4.Capacity Building Four Components WMO Executive Council (EC) recommended that a World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) project be considered for the Lake Victoria Watershed that would include a test-bed for field campaigns to collect data for research to understand the dynamics over the lake in order to reduce disaster from water spouts, waves, and wind gusts that affect both lake transport and fishermen who rely on the lake for their livelihoods. The EC further noted the potential linkages with the SWFDP for Eastern Africa." EC 2010

SERA? Obs Dept? Technology Transfer Activities Guide to Nowcasting Promote Capacity Building Training Workshop


45 WGNR - JSC6 July Brainstorm at WGMWFR Hi-Res NWP use Fine Scale DA analysis Observations DQ Hi-Res NWP dev Fine Scale DA dev Observations DQ Parameterization Numerics Gray Zone Typhoon LAM Land Surface Data Sets Optimal Use of existing networks Understanding Systems, Heuristics Forecaster Interaction Promotion Capacity Building New Technologies Maturity, skill of NWP for severe weather (core) Impact Co-chair, membership at 20? Too broad? 20 is unwieldy, difficult to cover expectations if much less? Severe Weather? Brief Summary: No one at WGMWFR adverse to re-organization Address gaps? Clarity on rationale? Since many options. Gaps: Forecast Systems Observations Benefits: Automation -> NWP Probabilistic/Ense mble Nowcasting Focus on 2-12 gap Mutli-parameter
