New High-Resolution FuturecastMarch 7th, 2013 at 6:18 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
We now have a new high-resolution Futurecast (RPM model) that will be on-air from now on. I took the surface wind vectors & overlaid them atop the model, as well.
This is something I have wanted to debut for a long-time & now it is available to us.
This is a benefit because it is much, much higher detail due to a very dense grid run on a faster supercomputer, is four model runs per day & tends to handle convection (t’storm situations) much better.
To detail other advantages of it, it tends to handle low stratus decks, cumulus development, summer MCS & pulsey multi-cell storms & rainfall much better than the original Futurecast.
