In this work we present a framework for a high-order hybrid method made up of an explicit finite-difference scheme and a member of the Weighted Essentially Non-Oscillatory (WENO) family. A new a posteriori switching criterion is developed based on the Multidimensional Optimal Order Detection (MOOD) method. The schemes tested here are chosen to illustrate the process, we select non-standard fourth order finite difference and fifth order compact and non-compact WENO, but any other combination of central finite differences and upwind schemes could be used as well. In this work we present a one-dimensional and a two-dimensional case to illustrate the speed, accuracy and shock-capturing properties of the proposed schemes.
