Development of Weather Information Resources for Yakima County Public Services

The proposed work includes three main objectives: incorporate a database of Yakima County roads into the Automated Real-time Road Weather System (ARROWS) to provide county-specific forecasts to highway maintenance personnel; ensure the inclusion of county-run road-weather information systems (RWIS) observations in ARROWS to calibrate the forecasts for local conditions; collect observation and forecast data to permit validation of the forecasts and provide information on forecast performance.
