NWS WES -- Available Case Studies
Southern Region Cases
Below is the list of Southern Region locally developed case studies compatible
with the Weather Event Simulator (WES) that are available for immediate
distribution. This means that the localization has been developed
to support the WES, the files have been broken into CD-size pieces
and a locally-developed Simulation Guide is available. Contact SSD
to receive copies of these cases.
Mar 12, 2008 Midland, TX Fire Weather Briefing (Case Summary)
Mar 15, 2002 Jackson, MS Severe thunderstorms.
This case focuses on warning composition and the
correct use of WARNGEN.(Case Summary)
Mar 27, 2003 Miami, FL Tornado and severe thunderstorms.
This case focuses on analysis of the storm environment,
including streamwise and cross-stream vorticity,
relative helicity and Bulk Richardson Number.(Case Summary)
Apr 6-7, 2003 Jackson, MS Tornadic supercells, large hail, wind damage and
flash flooding. (Case Summary)
Apr 7, 2002 San Angelo, TX Tornadic supercells, large hail, wind damage and
Apr 7, 2003 Lake Charles, LA Large hail. (Case Summary)
Apr 7-8, 2006 Huntsville, AL Severe Weather Outbreak, lightning (Case Summary)
Apr 8, 2003 Brownsville, TX Elevated supercells producing large hail and damaging winds. (Case Summary)
Apr 11, 2001 Norman, OK Tornadic storms in a high shear environment. (Case Summary)
Apr 28, 2002 Knoxville/ Strong non-tornadic supercells. (Case Summary)
Apr 29, 2002 Mobile, AL A subtle synoptic forcing event with emphasis on
diagnosing synoptic forcing to predict time and
location of initiation of deep convection.
Includes suggested AWIPS D2D Procedures
that emphasize use of the forecast funnel technique
across several scales of motion.(Case Summary)
May 1, 2002 Atlanta, GA Northwest Georgia Bow echo.
May 6, 2003 Huntsville, AL Tornadoes, Wind Damage, Flooding.(Case Summary)
May 8, 2003 Little Rock, AR Severe hailstorm. (Case Summary)
May 13, 2004 San Angelo, TX Severe Thunderstorms
May 27, 2002 Midland, TX Texas dryline storms. (Case Summary)
Jul 2-3, 2004 Shreveport, LA Squall Line in the Ark-La-Tex. (Case Summary)
Jun 11, 2005 Mobile, AL Tropical Storm: GFE TCM case (Case Summary)
Jun 16, 2002 Fort Worth,TX Derecho/squall line. (Case Summary)
Jun 28-29, 2000 Brownsville, TX Heavy rainfall and flooding. (Case Summary)
Jul 7, 2002 New Orleans, LA Wet microbursts. (Case Summary)
Jul 24, 2002 Shreveport, LA Summer thunderstorms. (Case Summary)
Aug 2, 2002 Mobile, AL Isolated pulse thunderstorms. (Case Summary)
Aug 13,2004 Tampa, FL Tropical cyclone (Case Summary)
Sep 14, 2001 Melbourne, FL Tropical cyclone induced tornadoes. (Case Summary)
Oct 6, 2005 Corpus Christi, TX HYSPLIT case. (Case Summary)
Oct 16, 2006 Shreveport, LA Thunderstorms and Heavy rainfall. (Case Summary)
Nov 5, 2001 Miami, FL Tropical cyclone induced tornadoes. (Case Summary)
Nov 15, 2001 Austin/San Antonio Severe thunderstorms and flooding. (Case Summary)
Nov 23-24, 2001 Tulsa, OK Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.(Case Summary)
Nov 27, 2001 Lubbock, TX Winter weather.
An interval-based simulation with emphasis on
identification of synoptic and mesoscale forcing. (Case Summary)
Nov 30, 2008 Jacksonville, FL Thunderstorms and low topped convection (Case Summary)
Dec 16-17, 2001 Little Rock, AR Flooding and flash flooding.
Dec 3-4, 2002 Norman, OK Winter weather. (Case Summary)
Dec 23, 2002 Houston/Galveston Bow echo, severe thunderstorms. (Case Summary)
This case will be particularly challenging to offices
where mega-super cells are common and 88D algorithms
like MESO and TVS have a much higher significance than
they do in the environs of the Gulf Coast.
NWS Library of Locally Developed Cases
The NWS Training Division has created a Case Study Library, which is a repository of locally-developed Weather Event Simulator (WES) compatible cases for use in NWS offices for training and research. The purpose of this library is to facilitate the exchange of WES cases between NWS offices.
Cases in the Case Study Library are being offered in addition to the WES cases developed by COMET and WDTB (see Nationally Distributed Cases above). A comprehensive list of WES cases is available on the SOO Science and Training Resource Center Website: http://strc.comet.ucar.edu/shared/cgi-bin/strc/csl/csl_summary.pl Instructions for ordering a case are given at that Web site.
