During the summer of 1989, the Forecast Systems Laboratory of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration sponsored an evaluation of artificial-intelligence-based systems that forecast severe convective storms. The evaluation experiment, called Shootout-89, took place in Boulder, Colorado, and focused on storms over the northeastern Colorado foothills and plains. Six systems participated in Shootout-89: three traditional expert systems, a hybrid system including a linear model augmented… 

1-1-2001 Expert Systems for Forecasting

TLDR
In forecasting, the most promising applications of expert systems are to replace unaided judgment in cases requiring many forecasts, to model complex problems where data on the dependent variable are of poor quality, and to handle semi-structured problems.

Analysis of Rocky Mountain mesoscale convective system initiation location clusters in the Arkansas‐Red River Basin

Mesoscale convective systems (MCSs) are the largest precipitation producers in terms of total accumulated precipitation and are, therefore, the focus of this study. For this analysis, the MCSs

Knowledge Representation in an Expert Storm Forecasting System

TLDR
A number of extensions to the rule and frame representations were developed, which include a view scheme to direct property inheritance through intermingled hierarchies and the automatic generation of production system rules from frame descriptions on an as-needed basis for event recognition.
