NOAA/NCEP NAM Model Forecast Imagery [NOAA/NCEP]


This data set contains the several forecast image products from the NOAA/NCEP NAM model. The products include 300mb heights/wind, 500mb heights/vorticity/wind, 700 mb heights/humidity/wind, 850mb heights/temperature/wind, mean sea level pressure/1000-500 mb thickness/precipitation, and surface winds/temperature/MSLP. The products are available every 6 hours out to the 84 hour forecast. The images were created by NOAA/NCEP.

During PLOWS 2009-2010 the simulated reflectivity product is also included. This data set contains imagery from the two PLOWS field phases, 5 February to 30 March 2009 and 12 October 2009 to 10 March 2010. No imagery are available for the period between the field phases.
