Weather and Climate Data Workshop Features Experts from NOAA and NRCS
This workshop session will feature Andy Bryant from the National Oceanographic and Atsmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Matt Warbritton of Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
Andy Bryant is the Service Hydrologist at the National Weather Service forecast office in Portland. He collaborates with a team of meteorologists, hydrologists, and electronics technicians. His office serves the public as well as partner agencies in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Andy will demonstrate online tools to visualize weather forecasts and climate data in a variety of ways, all with a farming audience in mind.
Matt Warbritton is the Lead Hydrologist for the Oregon Data Collection Office (USDA NRCS Snow Survey and Water Supply Forecasting Program). He has been the Hydrologist for the office since 2020. Prior to this assignment, he was the Physical Scientist for the National Park Service. He worked with Yosemite National Park’s hydroclimate network in the high country.
Matt will provide an overview of 2 primary products the Oregon Snow Survey offers to the public: the Interactive Map and the Water Supply Outlook Report. In addition, workshop participants will receive an introduction on interpreting current conditions (snowpack, precipitation, soil moisture, etc.). This information will be placed into a recent historical context, which is important for understanding drought development and recovery.
Workshop is Offered at No Cost, But Registration is Required.
