The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is a government agency that is part of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), operating under the control of the National Weather Service (NWS), which in turn is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States Department of Commerce (DoC). The agency is also responsible for forecasting fire weather (indicating conditions that are favorable for wildfires) in the contiguous U.S., issuing fire weather outlooks for Days 1, 2, and 3–8, which detail areas with critical or extremely critical fire conditions.

dbo:abstract
  • The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is a government agency that is part of the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), operating under the control of the National Weather Service (NWS), which in turn is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States Department of Commerce (DoC). Headquartered at the National Weather Center in Norman, Oklahoma, the Storm Prediction Center is tasked with forecasting the risk of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes in the contiguous United States. It issues , , and as a part of this process. Convective outlooks are issued for the following eight days (issued separately for Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Days 4–8), and detail the risk of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes during the given forecast period, although tornado, hail and wind details are only available for Day 1. Days 2 and 3, as well as 4–8 use a probabilistic scale, determining the probability for a severe weather event in percentage categories. Mesoscale discussions are issued to provide information on certain individual regions where severe weather is becoming a threat and states whether a watch is likely and details thereof, particularly concerning conditions conducive for the development of severe thunderstorms in the short term, as well as situations of isolated severe weather when watches are not necessary. Watches are issued when forecasters are confident that severe weather will occur, and usually precede the onset of severe weather by one hour, although this sometimes varies depending on certain atmospheric conditions that may inhibit or accelerate convective development. The agency is also responsible for forecasting fire weather (indicating conditions that are favorable for wildfires) in the contiguous U.S., issuing fire weather outlooks for Days 1, 2, and 3–8, which detail areas with critical or extremely critical fire conditions.

  • Le Storm Prediction Center (SPC) est situé à Norman, Oklahoma et fait partie du « National Centers for Environmental Prediction » (NCEP), un groupe de centres de prévision national américain sous le contrôle du « National Weather Service » (NWS). Le NWS est un des services du National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) du "Department of Commerce" (DoC). Jusqu'à octobre 1995, le SPC était connu comme « The National Severe Storms Forecast Center » (NSSFC) et était situé près de Kansas City, Missouri. Depuis septembre de 2006, le Storm Prediction Center, le bureau du National Weather Service, le National Severe Storms Laboratory, le département de météorologie de l'université et d'autres organisations en météorologie de l'État de l'Oklahoma ont déménagé dans le centre national de météorologie sur les terrains de l'université d'Oklahoma dans la ville de Norman.

  • Das Storm Prediction Center (Zentrum für Sturmvorhersagen) der Vereinigten Staaten in Norman (Oklahoma) gehört zu den National Centers for Environmental Prediction. Es unterliegt der Kontrolle des National Weather Service, einer Abteilung der National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration des amerikanischen Handelsministeriums. Bis zum Oktober 1995 war das Storm Prediction Center in Kansas City (Missouri) unter dem Namen National Severe Storms Forecast Center ansässig. Das Storm Prediction Center ist verantwortlich für die Erkennung, Beschreibung und Bewertung von Risiken, die von konvektiven Stürmen ausgehen. Zu diesen Risiken zählen vor allem Tornados, Hagelkörner mit mehr als 2 cm Durchmesser und Winde mit Geschwindigkeiten von mindestens 93 km/h. Ebenfalls zu den Aufgaben des Storm Prediction Centers gehört die Warnung vor brandgefährdeten Gebieten oder starken Schneefällen. Die Aufgaben werden im Wesentlichen durch convective outlooks, severe thunderstorm watches und tornado watches, weather watches sowie mesoscale discussions verfolgt. In einem dreistufigen Verfahren werden das Gebiet, die Zeitspanne und die Details einer Wetterwarnung immer weiter konkretisiert und dabei die Aufmerksamkeit erhöht. (de)
