A common theme within the aforementioned studies is an acknowledged potential for societal benefit through the forecasting and communication of probabilistic hazardous weather information. Deliberate and rigorous scientific research and development are under way with ongoing FACETs work to determine with reasonable certainty whether the cited recommendations will be of value to the nation.

Around 1255, ATC issued the pilot hazardous weather information for the area along his route of flight.
"It is this detailed and specific information that is invaluable to controllers." The current system has been in place since 1978, after the NTSB determined that a major contributing factor to the 1977 Southern Airways DC-9 crash in Georgia, in which 62 people died, was ATC's inability to quickly send hazardous weather information to flight crews.
This article articulates an integrative framework for understanding the creation, communication, interpretation, and use of hazardous weather information as evolving, interconnected processes.
Three months further down the road, a Mooney, M20J piloted by a 1300-hour CFI with a student aboard, penetrated active thunderstorms, didn't survive the encounter, and generated an NTSB finding that, "ATC's failure to issue hazardous weather information to the pilot," was a contributing factor.
