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.

JOM: Identifying Plume Mode via WSR-88D Observations of Wildland Fire Convective Plumes and Proposed Tactical Decision Support ApplicationsTo date, the use of Doppler radar (WSR-88D) in wildland fire operations has been limited, with tactical applications focused on analyzing ambient atmospheric features. This paper presents geographically diverse analysis of radar-observed wildland fire convective plumes to determine indicators of plume mode for tactical decision support. Through the visualization of buoyancy via thermal bubbles and vertical plumes, plume mode is Continue Reading...
- At high latitudes in winter, the atmosphere at flight levels used by passenger and cargo aircraft can reach temperatures cold enough to restrict the flow of jet fuel from the fuel tanks to the engine, due either to water freezing in the fuel or the fuel itself freezing. Currently, aviation forecasters rely on a combination of aircraft reports, pilot reports, Continue Reading...
JOM: Techniques and Thresholds of Significance for Using WSR-88D Velocity Data to Anticipate Significant TornadoesSignificant tornadoes (EF2+) make up a very small percentage of the total United States tornado events, but produce the overwhelming majority of tornado fatalities. Identifying significant tornado events in a shortfused warning environment has been a particular focus of the United States National Weather Service’s severe weather program in recent years, with the goal of reducing the loss of life Continue Reading...
JOM: Early Operational Successes of the University of Louisiana Monroe’s Polarimetric S-band Doppler RadarIn October 2016, the University of Louisiana Monroe (ULM) began operating a polarimetric S-band Doppler weather radar to help close the low-level radar coverage gap across northern Louisiana by increasing the quantity of data sampled below 3.0 km AGL. Data are delivered in near-real time to local National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Forecast Offices to help meteorologists accomplish their mission Continue Reading...
