2022 HWT Spring Forecasting Experiment

The NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed (HWT) is a joint project of the National Weather Service and the National Severe Storms Laboratory.

The HWT provides a conceptual framework and a physical space to foster collaboration between research and operations to test and evaluate emerging technologies and science for NWS operations. The HWT was borne from the “Spring Program” which, for the last decade, has been used to test and evaluate new forecast models, techniques, and products to support NWS Storm Prediction Center forecast operations.

The 2022 Spring Forecasting Experiment is scheduled to run 5.5 hours daily from Monday-Friday (9am – 12:30pm and 2:00 – 4:00pm CDT) from May 2 through June 3 (except Memorial Day) using Google Meet.
