Abstract : As part of your Local Analysis and Forecast Program (LAFP), you've identified both centrally and locally produced products. Most products produced at the centralized facilities depict synoptic scale weather features; however, the mesoscale features also concern the forecaster. To help focus on the mesoscale, units can use local products to supplement centrally produced ones. This T-TWOS suggests using the Delta-Con (D-Con) Command Sequence (CS) as a tool to optimize these smaller scale products. You can obtain local products that provide a mesoscale view of the upper air and surface conditions through your Automate Weather Distribution System (AWDS). Examples of local products obtained through AWDS include upper-air and surface analysis products from Formatted Binary Data (FBD), lower and upper air analysis products from Uniform Gridded Data Fields (UGDF), Skew-Ts, and vertical cross section (distance Log-P diagrams) products. However, the one you may use th most and with the greatest success is the Local Area Work Chart (LAWC).
