What is Collaborative Convective Forecast Product (CCFP) and how does it pertain to CDM? Convective weather is the single most disruptive force affecting the operation of aircraft within the National Airspace System (NAS). In order to mitigate the weather-induced disruptions, the parties involved have proposed an alternative to the conventional aviation weather forecasting for convective activity. This alternative consists of a process by which an initial forecast produced by the Aviation Weather Center (AWC) in Kansas City evolves into a final product through collaboration by participating meteorologists from the airlines and Center Weather Service Unit (CWSU). The forecast is called Collaborative Convective Forecast Product (CCFP). CCFP is a component of the CDM as it encourages and promotes collaboration among all stakeholders to share and exchange information. It is expected that this forecast produced by collaboration will improve decision making process within the CDM framework and lead to reduction in delays, reroutes and cancellations influenced by convective events.
