WPC's Mission and Vision
 
Welcome to the WPC

Located in the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, MD, the Weather Prediction Center is one of the nine National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP), which is part of the National Weather Service (NWS).  The WPC exists to meet the real-time weather information needs of a growing group of users including NWS field offices, other governmental agencies, the media, the private sector, academic institutions, the international community, and the general public.  We support the NWS mission of protecting lives and property and enhancing the national economy.  We have created this web site so you can learn more about our operations and view our latest products. 

 
Mission Statement

A leader in the collaborative weather forecast process delivering responsive, accurate, and reliable national forecasts and analyses.


 
Vision Statement

America's Go-To Center for high-impact precipitation events and forecast guidance out to 14 days for a Weather-Ready Nation.


 
WPC's Strategic Plan

In late 2011, WPC developed a 5-year plan for supporting the National Weather Service's goal of building a Weather-Ready Nation. Included in the plan (and defined above) are our new mission and vision statements.
