19th Conference on IIPS


Weather Event Simulator Tips and Techniques

Bernard N. Meisner, NOAA/NWS Southern Region Headquarters, Fort Worth, TX; and N. N. Rydell

The new NWS Weather Event Simulator (WES) is a powerful training tool that allows forecasters to replay weather events in displaced real-time and to interrogate archived data in detail within the D2D environment. The WES has been installed at NWS forecast offices around the country. This presentation will demonstrate some tips and techniques to enhance WES training sessions, such as: (1) the use of multiple Display Two Dimensions (D2D) sessions with different clock settings to simultaneously display data at different periods during a replayed event; (2) how to use multiple office localizations with data from an archived event; (3) the use of HTML documents on the WES as supplemental training materials; (4) user IDs and procedures in simulations; (5) archiving radar products (e.g., cross sections) during an event; and (6) when D2D procedures will work as expected and when they won't.
