  • The Utah Streamflow Forecast and Hydrometeorological Tools Workshop: Using & Improving NWS online tools

    -
    Workshop

    Participants at this workshop will have the opportunity to hear about how streamflow forecasts are made, and will receive training in a computer lab setting on using the new and existing NOAA online resources. Participants will also be able to provide opinions and insight directly to the developers so the NOAA can improve the web-based tools. There will be exercises designed to glean further information from participants to help in the development and improvement of online resources. [Saint George, Utah]

  • Front Range Water Providers Workshop

  • Forecast Verification Workshop

    -
    Workshop

    In order to gage forecast quality, users must know the accuracy and skill of forecasts--whether seasonal climate forecasts or water supply forecasts. This workshop introduced participants to the basics of forecast verification statistics using water supply forecasts. Presenters included NRCS forecasters, NOAA Western Regional personnel, and NOAA CBRFC forecasters. [Boulder, Colorado]
