CW3E Accepted as a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador
September 7, 2017
CW3E recently became a NOAA Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) Ambassador. The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador Initiative is a collaborative entity that brings numerous organizations, businesses, and people together in order to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather and water events.
CW3E is being recognized as a WRN Ambassador because it promotes the Weather-Ready Nation messages and themes to their stakeholders and engages with NOAA personnel on potential collaboration opportunities. CW3E is doing this through scientific research to improve forecasts of extreme precipitation and flooding on the west coast, as well as communicating about extreme events through the hydrometeorological outlooks and post-event summaries on the CW3E website and Twitter. CW3E in collaboration with NOAA, will assist in improving the nation’s readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience against extreme weather.
Becoming a WRN Ambassador advances CW3E one step further in executing our mission to provide 21st Century water cycle science, technology and outreach to support effective policies and practices that address the impacts of extreme weather and water events on the environment, people and the economy of Western North America.
