Abstract

A Cool-Season Quantitative Precipitation Forecasting (CSQPF) workshop was convened to advise the U.S. Weather Research Program (USWRP) on the development of an implementation plan for improving cool-season quantitative precipitation forecasting (QPF). The workshop defined critical research activities and operational tests needed to advance short-term (0-48h) QPF in the cool season, including snow and freezing rain. The workshop considered physical process studies, numerical weather prediction (NWP) and data assimilation methods, atmospheric observing systems, and the use and value of improved forecasts.
