Deterministic and Ensemble Forecasting with the High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR)

2016 National Water Center Summer Institute Cyberseminar Series

Presenter(s):
David Dowell / NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory Global Systems Division
Curtis Alexander / NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory Global Systems Division

Talk Description:

Every hour, the High-Resolution Rapid Refresh (HRRR) provides forecasts out to 15 hours over the conterminous US of precipitation, severe weather, and other small-scale atmospheric phenomena.  The next generation HRRR will include ensemble forecasting (quantifying forecast uncertainty by providing multiple forecast scenarios rather than just one), longer lead times, and expanded coverage to Alaska and other regions. Questions will be taken after the presentation. This is the next in a series of informational webinars to provide additional information on the Summer Institute, examples of Summer Institute projects, and an overview of the tools and resources available to participants during the Summer Institute.  Webinars are free and open to the public. Webinars will be recorded and posted to the CUAHSI website for later viewing.
