Situational awareness is a key factor in the National Weather Service providing exceptional warning services to the public. Many aspects of internal NWS operations, such as communication of storm reports and spotter information, do not take full advantage of recent technological advancements. To correct this problem a diverse group of Information Technology Officers and forecasters have developed a software package called SevereClear. This presentation will discuss the SevereClear package; its capabilities and advantages; and future development plans.
