Warm season quantitative precipitation forecasts
present a unique challenge.
While numerical weather prediction
has led to significant improvements in cool season forecasts,
inadequate representation of summertime convection has meant
slower progress in warm-season forecasting, especially for
heavy precipitation events.
Scientists have diagnosed precipitation
patterns over the North American continent using national
composites of radar reflectivity. It is recommended that you
read this manuscript for
a thorough review of the project.
