For the third year the La Crosse National Weather Service (NWS) office is participating in a Post Storm Survey project, hosted and developed by Saint Cloud State University. The objective of this Post Storm Survey (PSS) is to gain insight into decision-making related to hazardous winter weather, as well as providing a critical tool in bridging the gap between the weather community and users. This information will be vital for the weather forecasting community to improve communicating the threat of hazardous winter weather.
This survey was created by Matt Taraldsen, a meteorology student at St. Cloud State University, under the guidance of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences professor Dr. Anthony Hansen, Communication Studies professor Suzanne Stangl-Erkens and meteorologists from the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Duluth, Minnesota. Sarah Stalker is now administrating the survey.
