Hovmöller Analysis And Prognostic Approach (HAPA) Project Reports

DISCLAIMER: This is an EXPERIMENTAL project report based on the Hovmöller Analysis and Prognostics Approach (HAPA) conducted at the WFO New Orleans/Baton Rouge Forecast Office (WFO LIX). This report is a means of bringing situational awareness to large scale events and potential impacts that may require decision support or emergency response activities in the foreseeable future.

The intended audience of this report is media, NWS partners, stakeholders, and the general public. Users must refer to the latest official NWS forecasts and outlooks for any decision-making activities.
