KPHI-TV represented at the August “Threats in Motion” Workshop

KPHI-TV researchers were excited to participate in the Threats in Motion workshop held in Norman, OK this August.  Threats in Motion is a proposed change to National Weather Service tornado and severe thunderstorm warnings.  This concept would allow warning polygons to update every minute and move forward in time spatially.  This potential change represents a bridge to probabilistic information in the future under a FACETs paradigm, and is a significant change to the current warning system.  Other industry representatives included those from The Weather Company, Baron, Midland Weather Radio and NBC Universal.   The workshop also included stakeholders from other NOAA laboratories and NWS entities, as well as the emergency management community.  Threats in Motions concepts will be tested (in addition to probabilistic hazard information) with broadcast meteorologists during this October’s Hazardous Weather Testbed.
