"A Review of Significant Weather Events Occurring in 2015"
Greg Carbin, NOAA/Storm Prediction Center, Norman, OK
"Greg will present an overview of hazardous weather episodes
impacting life and property within the United States during 2015.
Selected events will be presented in quasi-chronological order and
described with photos, maps, and loops of satellite and radar data.
While many of the events selected for this talk captured the attention
of the media and public, some of these "meteorological memories" may
have been forgotten as more substantial weather events occurred
throughout the year. This review will highlight some of the "big
stories", as well as smaller short-term events. The presentation will
include descriptions of significant and deadly weather events of the
past year including winter storms, tornadoes and floods. Along with the
meteorological set-up for each event, an impact summary will also be
Given the national scope and varied responsibilities of the Storm
Prediction Center, high impact weather events, ranging from severe
thunderstorm and tornado outbreaks to wildfires and winter storms, are
analyzed and forecast regularly. These responsibilities provide the SPC
forecaster with a unique opportunity to interpret data related to
extreme weather across the nation. This diversified experience, and the
availability of large, high-resolution, archived datasets, provide for
this type of informative presentation."
