... observing systems: Recommendation: Continue and keep on schedule the planned development and deployment of the new weather observing systems and technologies. Full and timely implementation of the new observational systems that form part of the NWS modernization will allow maximum development and improvement of analytical data bases, numerical prediction models, and operational forecast and warning capabilities.
From page 32...
... Recommendation: Develop data-assimilation techniques to combine the many kinds of data into coherent, gridded data sets suitable for a wide range of weather forecast and research tasks. Data assimilation will allow improvement of existing numerical prediction models and development of new ones that explicitly simulate circulation features that range from global to cloud scales and that exert control over the development of severe storms.
From page 33...
... The future availability of highly trained professional meteorologists is a critical factor in realizing gains in understanding and prediction capability as a result of NWS modernization. As Chapter 5 indicates, the necessary actions to fulfill these recommendations are embodied in the National Stormscale Operational and Research Meteorology (STORM)
