Mesoscale meteorology – the study of medium-scale weather features from 2 to 2000 km in size – can help fine-tune forecasts to make them more accurate and detailed. From severe thunderstorms to mountain winds to hurricanes, mastery of the mesoscale is essential to good forecasters. Resources in this topic area include information on forecasting in complex terrain, dust storms, dynamically forced fog, banded precipitation, and a mesoscale meteorology primer. You’ll also find training in data downscaling and how mesoscale models work.
