|A view of Puget Sound from the Washington State Convention Center, home of the 2017 AMS Annual Meeting|
Tuesday, February 07, 2017
During the week before last, over 4500 meteorologists convened in Seattle, Washington for the 97th American Meteorological Society (AMS) annual meeting. As always, I left this meeting with a plethora of new ideas, enthusiasm for the field, and at least a dozen papers added to my to-read pile. However, I also noticed a number of talks which mentioned the Spring Forecasting Experiment, including results from past experiments and hints of what's to come in SFE 2017.
