Longer Duration QPF Verification
12 Dec, 2006 – 29 Aug, 2007 (less Feb/Mar)
SPC 4km run serving as proxy for Para HRW because Opnl Central CONUS run is a 12Z run while the SPC run is a 00Z run and they didn’t cover exactly the same domain - so:
- Each was independently verified against the NAM (these individual comparisons to the NAM are clean)
- The ratio of (ops HRW / NAM) is applied to get a relative score for the ops HRW against the NAM verifying the SPC run. Not perfect, but it levels the playing field.
