NEW FACES ARRIVING AT THE NWS ILN

dates of these people have yet to be determined. However, we expect them to arrive sometime late this summer or early this fall .

Once all of our new forecasters have completed some on site training, they will begin to work shifts.  With the extra people on shift, ILN will be able to assume the public forecasting responsibilities from Cleveland, Louisville and Indianapolis.  These responsibilities include the issuance of the zone forecasts as well as flood watches and winter weather warnings, watches and advisories.

CONTINUED NEW
COMPUTER SYSTEM

(Continued from page 1)

warning information to be even more specific when describing the areas which will be affected.  Of course if the storm motion needs to be adjusted, the forecaster will always have the capability to edit the warned area.

Some other exciting characteristics of the system include being able to loop both Infrared, Visible and water vapor imagery on the same screen. Or even being able to overlay satellite , lightning and radar data on the same screen.  This will be  a helpful tool in further clarifying the most volatile parts of a thunderstorm.

This new system will aid the forecasters in improving their forecasts and warning and hence better servicing you, the public.
