Bite-Sized Science: Threats in Motion
Loading the player
In nature, hazardous weather is almost always in motion. New research and technology are making it possible to provide more continuous information about the storm and its movement. Threats in Motion (TiM) is the next step in the evolution of how weather information is provided to the public.
Currently being tested in the NOAA Hazardous Weather Testbed, TiM warning grids update every minute and move continuously with the path of the storm. TiM has the advantage of providing useful lead times for all locations downstream of the hazards, and continually removes the warning from areas where the threat has already passed.
