Abstract:

Without using mathematics, this memo summarizes the important information weather forecasters need to know to apply numerical weather prediction NWP forecasts. Weve had to make some tough choices regarding what material to include. Weve put the more technically rigorous information in an appendix readers can review this material as they have time. Weve organized the material under three main topics History of NWP. Components of an NWP model. Sfrengths and weaknesses of NWP models--what these models can and cannot do.
