What is AWIPS?

AWIPS is the Advanced Weather interactive Processing System, which is used by NWS forecasters across the country to assist with most aspects of the forecasters' jobs, from producing official forecasts to issuing weather alerts to communicating meteorological information to partners and the public in usable ways. 

Although MDL does not manage AWIPS, it has been involved in the development and maintenance of several applications and plugins in AWIPS over the years.  Historically, these apps and plugins relate to hydrometeorological Decision Support, as it applies to the NWS WFO Forecaster.


If you would like to know more about AWIPS, see the list if links in the "Associated Resources" section of this page.
