Multi-Radar/Multi-Sensor (MRMS) Training


Example slide from MRMS Training

Multi-Radar/Multi-Sensor represents a whole new way to use key inputs into warning and forecast decision-making for public, hydrological and aviation service sectors of the NWS and its core partners. MRMS was deployed operationally in October of 2014 from the NCEP Central Operations suite of servers and made available to the NWS and the public through a variety of means. This MRMS training release is designed as a resource to familiarize users with MRMS, how it’s created, and initial steps of applying these new data sets in operations.

More guidance and training will become available from WDTB through the near future. As a result, expect the MRMS Training web page to be updated frequently.
