NAM Alaska - North American Mesoscale Forecast System
|Provider:||National Centers for Environmental Prediction, NOAA (USA)|
|Update frequency:||every 6 hours|
|Model duration:||19 forecasts starting at 0 hr, ending at 2 days 12 hrs|
|Parameters:||pressure, wind, wind gust, rain, cloud, simulated radar, visibility|
|GRIB model date:||Fri Sep 18 06:00:00 2020 UTC|
|Download date:||Fri Sep 18 08:35:01 2020 UTC|
|Download delay:||2hr 35min|
Note: the Download delay is the amount of time required for the GRIB model to compute its forecast and then for the LuckGrib cluster to download the data and make it available. The LuckGrib delay is generally less than 10 minutes, the remainder of the delay is the model compute time.
NAM Alaska is a high resolution nest, that runs within the larger NAM suite of models. NAM is a mesoscale model, which means that the numerical analysis is able to model land, and other features, at a higher resolution than in a global model, leading to improved forecast accuracy.
