Description: This set of two Case Exercises will allow forecasters to analyze a series of datasets (model, anomalies, QPFs, etc.) to gain expertise and confidence in predicting high impact rainfall and flood events. Within each case is a Job Sheet that provides information and asks questions regarding the case data. The Case Exercises are HTML based and can be viewed within any internet browser. You can launch the Case Exercise Interface from this page or you can download it to your local PC. You will need to print our the Job Sheet to complete the Case Exercises.
