Charter

Published by the National Weather Association, the Journal of Operational Meteorology (JOM) covers topics relevant to all aspects of operational meteorology on a range of time and space scales. Suitable topics include new or improved forecasting and warning techniques, verification studies, applications of observations and models to improve forecasts and warnings, and case studies of major weather events. Climatological studies, interdisciplinary studies, and studies documenting education and training practices also will be considered if relevant to operational meteorology. In addition, the Editors welcome submissions that present strategies for the creation and dissemination of forecasts and warnings that maximize the protection of life and property. JOM is a peer-reviewed, all-electronic journal with an international scope, providing authors with the benefits of economical publication costs and rapid publication following acceptance.

Note: effective 1/1/2016, the JOM has transitioned to an open access journal. As such, all articles, past and present, are now available to all free of charge.

  • The Historic 2 April 2017 Louisiana Tornado Outbreak
    On 2 April 2017 Louisiana saw one of its largest tornado outbreaks since 1950. The day saw a total of 21 tornadoes, six of which were classified as significant (EF2+). This extreme event resulted in an estimated 4.2 million dollars in damage and two fatalities. A climatology of Louisiana individual tornado days dating back to 1950 ranked this event second Continue Reading...
  • Identifying Significant Cognitive Factors for Practicing and Learning Meteorology
    Understanding which cognitive factors facilitate meteorology skills is important for meteorology training and education. This study investigated aspects of cognition important to successful completion of meteorology tasks typically provided to student meteorologists. With a sample of 81 participants—spanning the range of experience from undergraduate students to professional meteorologists—we administered two spatial thinking tests, a visuospatial working memory test, a concept Continue Reading...
  • Understanding Emergency Manager Forecast Use in Severe Weather Events
    For Emergency Managers (EMs), preparations for severe weather have always relied on accurate, well-communicated National Weather Service (NWS) forecasts. As part of their constant work to improve these forecasts, the NWS has recently begun to develop impact-based products that share forecast uncertainty information with EMs, including the Probabilistic Hazard Information (PHI) tool. However, there is a lack of research investigating Continue Reading...
  • Atmospheric Rivers and National Weather Service Watches, Warnings, and Advisories Issued Over California 2007–2016
    Atmospheric rivers (ARs) are a focus of many global hydrometeorological studies and applications. The impacts of ARs along the United States’ West Coast include extreme orographic precipitation that often leads to flooding, flash flooding, debris flows, and other hydrological hazards that necessitate issuance of watches, warnings, and advisories (WWAs) by the National Weather Service (NWS). The objectives of this paper Continue Reading...
