For much of the past year there have been numerous headlines citing the impact of the deployment of 5G technologies on weather forecasting. The FCC has moved forward with auctions of two different passive remote sensing bands that are critical inputs to numerical weather prediction. The proposal to share spectrum with GOES satellites has also advanced, increasing risk of interference to real-time GOES information to non-NOAA users. Last fall's World Radiocommunication Conference in Egypt also set the international rules around spectrum for the deployment of 5G. This Town Hall will feature international experts from across the enterprise who will highlight these recent challenges and the implications and actions for the weather enterprise moving forward.
