A set of pre-determined open-ended questions were asked to guide focus group discussions, and these discussions were both video recorded and transcribed in real time. Transcriptions from each of the six focus groups were thematically analyzed, and a list of codes were developed to identify themes. These themes belonged to one of two groups: 1) forecasters’ use of rapidly-updating PAR data during the experiment, and 2) how forecasters envision rapidly-updating PAR data being integrated into warning operations. In this presentation, findings from this thematic analysis will be shared, and dialogue that captures the essence of forecasters’ thoughts will be used to illustrate findings from their perspectives. Discussions will focus on forecasters’ reactions to the faster radar updates, how they adapted to counteract the increase in data availability, and the storm trends that these faster radar updates allowed them to observe. Forecasters’ suggestions of ways to visualize faster radar updates, the necessary training that will be required, and concerns of fatigue and staffing will also be included in this presentation.
