We are currently in the final month of one of the most expensive and damaging hurricane seasons in U.S. history. One of the most important and cost effective ways to protect and saves lives and property from hurricanes and other severe storms is to invest
in weather forecasting. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has worked to provide accurate and timely weather forecasts to save lives and property. However, the U.S. has been underfunding our tools and research in weather forecasting
for decades making this work difficult.
