Numerical Forecasting of Winds in the Terminal Environment

This report describes a method for forecasting low-level winds in the Terminal Environment in the 30 to 60 minute timeframe. Tests are performed using data from Lincoln Labs' Terminal Winds analysis system, run in Memphis, TN in the summer of 1994. Two gust front events (June 9 and June 21) are examined. Skill scores are calculated for each experiment and compared with persistence. Some preliminary conclusions and recommendations are then made.
