 CMA Training Center held the 5th Pilot Rotational Training Seminar for Weather Forecasters above Provincial Level from March 21 to April 26 2017.

 

The six-week seminar is designed to enable the participants to gain a systematic knowledge of nowcasting techniques for severe convective weather and a better understanding of the key concepts and theories in short-range forecasting and nowcasting, including the concept of ensemble forecasting, the methods of applying its products and the advantages and limitations of deterministic NWP models, especially in forecasting severe convective weather and rainstorm, in order to allow for the more science-based forecasters to develop a stronger capability in analyzing an operation in the forecasting process, in using multi-source data in a comprehensive way and in interpreting, applying and correcting NWP outputs. 

 

The main topics of the seminar include key concepts and basic theories, severe convective weather nowcasting, deterministic NPW in brief, ensemble forecast, and case study and lecturers on high-impact weather. The participants are asked to carefully prepare a case of high-impact weather (rainstorm, severe convection, typhoon or snowstorm) occurring in the past three years, which will be discussed from the perspectives of how it is formed, why it is forecast as such and what pain points it poses.
