AccuWeather's Service to its Clients During the Moore Tornado

Last week, there was media coverage of AccuWeather's new computer model that specializes in forecasting extreme weather. So, you might wonder how it did with yesterday's tornado in Moore. Answer? Amazingly well.
It forecast two tracks of supercell thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes across central Oklahoma. The southern track was quite close to Moore. This served to reinforce to our meteorologists that tornadoes were quite possible in central Oklahoma. 

Our team did an outstanding job of warning our clients of the tornado itself. We have prepared a report and it is available here
