Episode 53

Today’s guest needs no introduction… We’re sitting down with Dr. Louis Uccellini, Director of the National Weather Service and NOAA Assistant Administrator for Weather Services. Dr. Uccellini has been making major contributions to the meteorological field for more than 40 years and has been a driving force in positioning the U.S. to be a Weather-Ready Nation. He recently announced his candidacy to become the next President of the World Meteorological Organization, and we’ll discuss his future goals for the organization and its Members across the globe. Finally, as NOAA prepares for the upcoming U.S. GFS Model upgrade, we’ll explore what this means for our country’s forecasting capabilities and its position within the numerical modeling community.
