Lake Victoria Project Proposal The Nowcast System The SWFDP The Field Project Capacity Building “WMO Executive Council (EC) recommended that a World Weather Research Programme (WWRP) project be considered for the Lake Victoria Watershed that would include a test-bed for field campaigns to collect data for research to understand the dynamics over the lake in order to reduce disasterfrom water spouts, waves, and wind gusts that affect both lake transport and fishermen who rely on the lake for their livelihoods. The EC further noted the potential linkages with the SWFDP for Eastern Africa." EC 2010 Four Components WGNR - JSC6 July 18 2013

  45. Benefits: Automation -> NWP Probabilistic/Ensemble Nowcasting Focus on 2-12 gap Mutli-parameter • Parameterization • Numerics • Gray Zone • Typhoon LAM • Land Surface Data Sets • Optimal Use of existing networks • Understanding • Systems, Heuristics • Forecaster Interaction • Promotion • Capacity Building • New Technologies • Maturity, skill of NWP for severe weather (core) Brainstorm at WGMWFR • Impact • Co-chair, membership at 20? • Too broad? 20 is unwieldy, difficult to cover expectations if much less? • Severe Weather? Hi-Res NWP dev Fine Scale DA dev Observations DQ Hi-Res NWP use Fine Scale DA analysis Observations DQ Brief Summary: No one at WGMWFR adverse to re-organization Address gaps? Clarity on rationale? Since many options. Gaps: Forecast Systems Observations WGNR - JSC6 July 18 2013
