  • Description:
    The Techniques Development Laboratory has a project called the Local AFOS MOS Program (LAMP). The purpose of the project is the provide Model Output Statistics (MOS) forecasts to a Weather Service Forecast Office (WSFO) for essentially all locations for which WSFO makes routine forecasts. These forecasts will be for most weather elements and for projections of 1 to about 20 hours. Inputs will include centralized MOS forecasts; hourly observations; a few forecast fields from the National Meteorological Center's (NMC's) primary short-range guidance model; and, when available, radar and satellite data. This report describes the development of an experimental surface wind forecast system for WSFO Washington that could provide guidance for projections of 1 to 20 hours from the start times of 0800 and 1300 GMT.
