The TIGGE-LAM panel was set up by the GIFS-TIGGE working group to coordinate the contribution from Limited Area Model (LAM) Ensemble Prediction Systems (EPS) to TIGGE (the THORPEX Interactive Grand Global Ensemble, Bougeault et al. 2010) and to the proposed GIFS (Global Interactive Forecast System). After a couple of years of activity, the Panel was requested by the WWRP Joint Scientific Committee to develop a Strategic Plan outlining the main scientific and development issues on which TIGGE LAM must concentrate to advance LAM EPS and defining specific activities related to these issues. Furthermore, the sensible increase in resolution, both in deterministic and ensemble model applications, is making more and more evident the importance of establishing a broader long-term effort within the WWRP that focuses on improving skill of Mesoscale short-term regional forecasts. This means that discussions need to take place between the different groups with interests in this subject.
