Hall B (Boston Convention and Exhibition Center)

Requirements for the National Weather Service’s (NWS) National Centers of Environmental Prediction (NCEP) necessitate workflow and product modernization. Due to the success of Hazard Services (HS) development at the weather forecast office (WFO) level, and its scientifically-based product generation and output flexibility, various NCEP offices have identified HS to aid their transition onto AWIPS, gain efficiencies in forecast production, and serve as a collaboration vehicle with WFOs and other National Centers. This presentation will provide an overview of past, present, and future development opportunities within HS at various National Centers. Assorted applications of generating hazardous output using a variety of data inputs will also be presented.
