Predicting weather phenomenon with reasonable accuracy crucially depends on the Numerical weather prediction with its all components, starting from data assimilation, physical parameterization, numerical integration, post-processing, etc. Recent prediction of extreme weather events like Super Cyclone UMPHAN in India with phenomenal accuracy has again proved it. Hence Meteorological personnel engaged in weather forecasting should have reasonable knowledge and skill on different aspects of NWP. They must be capable enough to understand, interpret and apply different NWP products more appropriately with full confidence. They must be able to appreciate the scientific reason for the change inaccuracy in an NWP forecast, due to certain tuning in the NWP model. These can only be achieved by systematically designing, conducting and participating training in NWP.
Keeping all above in mind, this training course has been designed for the forecasting personnel. Efforts have been made to maintain BIP-M standard. By attending this course weather forecasting personnel in the NMHS shall be capable enough to understand, interpret and apply different NWP products more appropriately with full confidence and they will be able to appreciate the scientific reason for the change inaccuracy in an NWP forecast, due to certain tuning in the NWP model.
