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.


  1. Investigate the structure and evolution of fronts and associated mesoscale phenomena in the central U.S. with emphasis on precipitation and severe weather.
  2. Ensure that component efforts of the system test are integrated into a focused research and development effort for mesoscale weather analysis and prediction.
  3. Advance the understanding of mesoscale prediction and limitations in active frontal regions with emphasis on improving forecasts.
