The Meteorological Service of Canada makes this GRIB2 format database available to private sector meteorologists, academics, and the general public. It contains data from analysis systems along with output from many of the Canadian Meteorological Centre’s Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models. The data is free, under standard terms and conditions.
The Environment Canada High Resolution Deterministic Prediction System is a regional model covering the majority of Canada and some of northern Continental US.
The Canadian Meteorological Service provides this model as an experiment, and the model is labelled as experimental on their site. Regardless of that status, it seems to have real value for Canadians living in regions north of the regional models provided by NOAA.
There are several HRDPS models available, the model supported in LuckGrib is the largest, continental version.
For more information on the model, see the official site.
