Evaluating Model Forecast Performance

Evaluating Model Forecast Performance
Challenge: 

Extensive testing and evaluation must be performed to ensure that modeling new techniques are ready for operational consideration.

Solution: 

Model Evaluation Tools (MET). The MET weather model verification package is designed to be a highly-configurable, state-of-the-art suite of verification tools to support the evaluation of weather prediction models.

Benefits: 

This capability is used by hundreds of researchers and developers globally across the weather enterprise (public, private, and academic) and is helping to accelerate the adoption of weather prediction technology improvements.
