The Centralized Storm Information System (CSIS) has been in place at the National Severe Storms Forecast Center (NSSFC) in Kansas City for two years. CSIS represents a major step toward providing the operational meteorologist a truly interactive, information handling and display system. The system consists of a GOES receiving antenna system, four Harris/6 computers, three interactive_ terminals, FAA "604" teletype input, two autodialers and are interfaced to the NSSFC computer. CSIS has had a dramatic and positive impact on the operations of NSSFC. The continued tailoring of the system to meet the operational needs of NSSFC has produced a high degree of forecaster acceptance and dependence on CSIS. Verification of tornado watches has shown a significant increase in skill since the implementation of CSIS.
