Predicting violent storms and dangerous weather conditions with current models can take a long time due to the immense complexity associated with weather simulation. Machine learning has the potential to classify tornadic weather patterns much more rapidly, thus allowing for more timely alerts to the public. A challenge in applying machine learning in tornado prediction is the imbalance between tornadic data and non-tornadic data. To have more balanced data, we created in this work a new data synthesization system to augment tornado storm data by implementing a deep convolutional generative adversarial network (DCGAN) and qualitatively compare its output to natural data.
