The Storm Prediction Center’s (SPC) mission is to provide timely and accurate forecasts of high-impact convective weather for the contiguous United States. Within the SPC, the Science Support Branch (SSB) is tasked with supporting SPC forecast operations through the infusion of science and technology into all aspects of the forecast process: ranging from before, during, and after forecast creation to ensuring the dissemination of the forecast. This presentation will provide a high-level overview of how and where python is being used at SPC, as well as touch on some of the challenges faced when using Python.
