Short-Term Forecast Plots: NAM and GFS Models

  • The NAM model gives forecast information out to 84 hours; the GFS to 168 hours.
  • The GFS images under this heading are four-panel plots where each plot has a panel for the 12-, 24-, 36-,
    & 48-hour forecasts and a panel for the 60- and, 72-, 84-, and 96-168 hour forecasts of various
    fields and parameters.
  • The NAM images under this heading are links to similar images created at NCAR/RAP for 12-, 24-, 36-,
    & 48-hour forecasts and a separate link for the 60- and, 72-, 84- hour forecasts of various fields and parameters.
  • The GFS forecast plots are generated FOUR times each day for the 00, 06, 12, and 18 UTC model runs, but
    are updated at different times here based on the time lags in NCEP's distribution of the various models.
