The Weather Research and Forecasting Innovation Act of 2017 (the Weather Act) bolsters the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research's (OAR) commitment to advancing weather research and reinvigorating the weather portfolio. The Office of Weather and Air Quality (OWAQ) ensures alignment of office practices with the strategic goals outlined in the Weather Act. This includes collaborating with various subject matter experts across NOAA to
develop Congressional reports and deliverables required by the Weather Act, and briefing NOAA leadership on OAR-related activities and reports.
