This short course will teach students how to configure and run NOAA's Unified Forecast System’s (UFS) Short Range Weather (SRW) Application on the Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud computing platform. The UFS SRW App is a numerical weather prediction framework that targets predictions of atmospheric behavior on a limited spatial domain and on time scales from less than an hour out to several days. It is the foundation for improving NOAA’s predictions of hazardous convective storms made by convection-allowing ensemble forecast systems. The application does this by bringing together the essential components of the UFS regional modeling system under a single umbrella that runs these components as separate but interdependent tasks. These components include the Finite Volume Cubed (FV3) based prognostic UFS Weather Model, pre- and post-processing codes, verification, and a workflow for running the system end-to-end. The App is designed to be used by both researchers and in operations.
