This session covers the Blended TPW (total precipitable water), and Percent of Normal TPW products available in AWIPS. Although the training was developed in 2009, the principles discussed still apply. Data sources used for these blended TPW products will be identified. Also, the presentation of these products in AWIPS will be illustrated, as well as the current AWIPS display limitations. Finally, basic operational uses of blended TPW products will be identified.
