The reduction in forecast RMS error due to the inclusion of targeted observations during winter storm reconnaissance (WSR) 2002 and 2003. The Equitable Threat Score (ETS) for precipitation was also examined. The President's Day snowstorm of 2003 was also examined as a case where adaptive observations were used to improve the forecast for a high societal impact weather event. The results are found consistent with improvement in both the surface pressure and wind forecasts over the verification region.
