NOAA/WMO RA IV Virtual Workshop: An Interactive Analysis of Tropical Storm Philippe

Workshop Information

June 4-7, 2024

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), in collaboration with the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology & Hydrology (CIMH) and the Caribbean Meteorological Organization (CMO) Headquarters Unit, have developed a virtual training case study workshop focused on analyzing Tropical Storm Philippe as the cyclone evolved and crossed the Caribbean Islands late September/early October 2023.

This workshop will provide an interactive analysis of TS Philippe through the use of satellite data and products, models, forecasts and reports which were used to identify, track, predict, and warn about the multi-hazard impacts of the storm, successes, challenges, and future improvements. Hands-on exercises and prediction practices will supplement the training, allowing the participants to address forecasting challenges and improve decision making. This is an English language only event with no simultaneous interpretation available.


Operational forecasters are encouraged to participate. This is a certificate track workshop with participants interacting through the webinar exercises and responding to questions. Space is limited to 100 attendees and certificates of completion will be issued to attendees who participate in a minimum of 3 days of training. Please note that if the number of people registered exceeds the capacity of the workshop, we will implement a selection process to ensure that all Caribbean countries are represented.

*Registration for the workshop is now closed. 


We recommend review of the following satellite products prior to the workshop.

We also recommended review of the following online module prior to the workshop. In order to access it you will need to sign into COMET or create a new account. There is no fee.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have developed competency in using the data and products for weather forecasting, prediction and monitoring aligned with WMO Satellite Skills and Knowledge for Operational Meteorologists and the AmeriGEO Societal Benefit Areas (Water, Disasters, Health, etc.).
