Number / Title: 17-018E:  Experimental Probabilistic Quantitative Precipitation Forecast


The provision and use of PQPF (Probabilistic Quantitative Precipitation Forecast) information in the forecast production process will provide customers and partners with a potential range of forecast accumulated precipitation, a capability that is not currently possible with existing deterministic QPF (Quantitative Precipitation Forecast) products issued by WFOs. This information will allow for better communication of forecast uncertainties and provide more effective impact-based decision support services for communities sensitive to flood threats.
