James Block, Meteorlogix, Inc., Minneapolis, MN; and J. Foerster
DTN/Meteorlogix has recently integrated several new weather technologies into its forecast operations, and in the process changed it's weather forecast paradigm. The automated forecast system that assimilates model, statistical, and climatological data is described. The use of the National Weather Service's Graphical Forecast Editor (GFE) system as a means of manually editing and adding value to the forecast is explained, along with the use of GIS technology as an aid in graphical forecast presentation. The benefits to clients in energy and surface transportation are described.
