The National Severe Storms Laboratory and National Climatic Data Center are currently partnering to reprocess WSR-88D data for the entire WSR-88D era (roughly since 1996). The Warning Decision Support System—Integrated Information (WDSS-II) software suite is being used in this reprocessing. The goal for MYRORSS is to take all the single WSR-88D data and RUC model analyses and combine them within WDSS-II onto a latitude-longitude Cartesian grid covering the conterminous United States. Several fields related to severe weather and quantitative precipitation estimation will be derived from these combinations of environmental analyses and radar data. This presentation will summarize the processing steps of the reanalysis, the output data, initial projects using the data and future availability of the dataset.
