The aim of the Weather Coalition is to bring together the American weather industry, state and local governments, and academia in an organized effort to urge Congress and the Executive Branch to undertake, promote, and support programs that will make “second to none” our nation’s portfolio of environmental observations and weather forecasting capabilities, including the underpinning research, development, and transition to operations. The intent is to significantly improve our nation’s weather prediction and warning capabilities, resident in both federal agencies and the American weather industry, and so reduce our nation’s socioeconomic vulnerability to weather, improve national physical and environmental security, increase protection of life and property, and enhance the global competitiveness of U.S. industry. more >
