Experimental PQR Model Spectrum Webpage
Proposed to Discontinue
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
This experimental web page originally developed at WFO Portland, OR (PQR) displays a "box and whisker" plot time series of statistical data that summarizes output from multiple numerical weather models in addition to the NWS forecast.This experimental web page will clearly show the uncertainty in the models (a good indicator of the possible outcomes) while at the same time being easy to understand. This service is meant to provide users the range of possibilities that exist in a forecast, not simply a single number that may be right or wrong. Users can use this web page to make a more informed decision based on the data presented, with the option to choose the NWS forecast if they feel uncomfortable with their interpretation of the data.
