Western States Water Council

A Voice for Water in the West 


House Hearing – The Future of Forecasting

On October 14, the House Science, Space & Technology Committee held a hearing on The Future of Forecasting: Building a Weather-Ready Nation on all Fronts.  NOAA’s Weather Ready Nation effort has helped the U.S. be better prepared for managing impacts of short-term weather disasters. Better S2S forecasts would inform decision-making and help mitigate such losses. The Western States Water Council submitted written testimony urging the Committee to encourage National Weather Service (NWS) to request the resources needed to start the western pilot project to improve S2S precipitation forecasting.
