GRIB Model


NAM Hawaii - North American Mesoscale Forecast System

Provider:National Centers for Environmental Prediction, NOAA (USA)
Model scope:Hawaii
Update frequency:every 6 hours
Resolution:1.3nm, 2.5km
Model duration:31 forecasts starting at 0 hr, ending at 2 days 12 hrs
Parameters:pressure, wind, wind gust, rain, cloud, temperature, humidity, convection, simulated radar
GRIB model date:Fri Nov 22 12:00:00 2019 UTC
Download date:Fri Nov 22 14:30:53 2019 UTC
Download delay:2hr 30min

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.

Description

NAM Hawaii 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.

When looking at this model and comparing it to a global model such as GFS, you will notice that the NAM Alaska model accounts for the land features in the islands much better than the lower resolution models.
