In the conclusion to the “Chancing the Storm” series, Heather Lazrus, Jennifer Henderson, and Julie Demuth describe the Scholarly Borderlands project, its goals, and how it gave rise to the series. In a number of collaborative panels presented at the American Meteorological Society’s annual meeting, presenters engaged with the question of how the multilayered aspects of uncertainty influence severe weather events. Speaking to weather prediction and communication specialists, these social scientists challenged the weather and climate communities to engage with the complexity their audiences face, and in particular, not to make assumptions about the homogeneity of those audiences. Attendees agreed more work needs to be done to make forecasting and hazard technical information more legible, and actionable, for communities at risk. We hope this series is a step in that direction.
