During July, NOAA National Weather Service forecasters from forecast offices and river forecast centers will assess emerging hydrometeorological concepts and products in the Multi-Radar / Multi-Sensor (MRMS) Hydro Experiment 2015. Their goal is to improve the accuracy, timing, and specificity of flash flood watches and warnings.
Recent flooding in Texas and Oklahoma put NSSL’s experimental Multiple Radar Multiple Sensor (MRMS) Flooded Locations and Simulated Hydrograph (MRMS-FLASH) system to a rigorous test, and researchers were pleased.
