STORM-FEST: USWRP/STORM Fronts Experiment Systems Test
STORM-FEST was a mesoscale field experiment conducted in the central U.S. during February and March 1992. The overall goal was to evaluate, in a very focused field experiment, the various research components critical for the success of the STORM Program.
- Investigate the structure and evolution of fronts and associated mesoscale phenomena in the central U.S. with emphasis on precipitation and severe weather.
- Ensure that component efforts of the system test are integrated into a focused research and development effort for mesoscale weather analysis and prediction.
- Advance the understanding of mesoscale prediction and limitations in active frontal regions with emphasis on improving forecasts.
