  • WRF/HRRR Lightning Threat

    • Threat 1, 2, and specifically 3

  • UWCI Cloud Top Cooling

  • UAH SATCAST

  • Enhanced-V/Overshooting Top

    • Mainly OT detection

    • IFR/LIFR probabilities were the main focus

    • Cloud phase and cloud thickness/depth were secondary


Research to operations effort

Research to Operations effort

  • Low Cloud and Fog:

    • Transition in operations complete!

    • Training materials/sessions are currently in the works

  • Volcanic Ash

    • Only AK domain will be ingested into the AWC

    • N-AWIPS vs. AWIPS-II

    • End of the summer?

  • Aircraft Icing Threat

    • Funding issue…

    • This will still be ingested into the AWC for evaluation purposes

    • Also will be in the AWC winter experiment (tentatively scheduled for February 2013)
