Historic Winter Weather Assessment For Snow Fence Design using a Numerical Weather Model

The objectives of this study are to a) develop new wind and winter precipitation tables for snow fence design using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model; b) compare the existing Ron Tabler tables to the new data to see if there have been significant changes in what the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) has been using; and c) determine the appropriate time frame and frequency for continuous data updating.
