NOAA/NESDIS has been providing the user community with operational satellite hydrometeological products for many years from both polar and geostationary satellites. These products have been instrumental in supporting NOAA’s role in protecting life and property, and are used for a wide range of applications including short term forecasts and warnings (i.e., tropical rainfall potential, flash floods, etc.) and long-term climate studies (i.e., multi-satellites QPE, seasonal to inter-annual variability). In this talk, the current status of the NOAA/NESDIS operational hydrometeological products and their applications will be briefly reviewed, and the upcoming improvements and changes to those operational products will be discussed as NOAA enters into JPSS, GOES-R and GPM era.
