 A Brief History of the Storm Prediction Center
The success of the Air Force tornado program --- along with media pressure to adopt the Air Force program for civilian use --- led the Weather Bureau to establish its own severe weather unit on a trial basis at the Weather Bureau-Army-Navy (WBAN) Analysis Center in Washington, DC in March 1952.
Three of the original five permanent SWU forecasters left the group before its move to Kansas City in 1954 Only Joseph Galway, the first forecaster to join the unit and the originator of the well-known "lifted index," remained with the SWU after 1955.
The success of the Air Force and Weather Bureau severe weather programs, in addition to educational efforts which included brochures and presentations on tornado safety, significantly reduced public opposition to tornado forecasts during the mid 1950s.
