The project included a first experimental phase during which the WRF was run operationally and in real-time at NWS Jacksonville (JAX). Output data were provided to NOAA Forecast Systems Lab to be incorporated into their Real Time Verification Statistics (RTVS) web site. Output grids were also saved on DVDs for later analysis. Systematic errors are examined over the entire model domain using the RTVS compiled statistics, as analyzed at Florida State University. In addition, several case studies, including cases of severe thunderstorms, and at least one tropical cyclone case, are summarized in our presentation. We compare forecasts of hot-start and cold-start runs of WRF with the 12 km eta model using a variety of statistical procedures, including feature-based methods. Our preliminary analysis will also include analysis of cool season events, as they are available from fall/winter 2003 cases.
