How we do that?
WRF-NMM is regional, numerical weather prediction software. It is designed to be a flexible, state-of-the-art atmospheric simulation system, created in NOAA/NCEP.
WRF-ARW is the research model of the NCAR. It is similar to other grid point models and is one of most widely used NWP software.
Through our 8yr experience we found out that little bit of changing WRF source code can significantly improve their forecasts.
Global Forecast System
Low resolution, Global Forecast System (GFS) covers entire globe and is run 4 times a day at NCEP, and it's products are freely available. We can use them to set up your medium-range forecast needs.
Soon, brand new NEMS NMM-B model will be available for public use. NMM-B is NOAA's successor to WRF-NMM model and is expected to perform better and faster! We will offer NEMS NMM-B model as soon as it become publicly available and as soon we test it throughoutly.
GrADS is our primary postprocessing software that we use to create various graphics and textual output for our client's forecasts. We also use gnuplot, pchart and similar tools to create various plots. Finally, our web designer can create nice weather graphics for your web if you need to.
Premuim hardware and infrastructure
We carefully select hardware and colocation data centers for our NWP models, paying close attention to every single detail for maximum performance, stability and reliability. That way we can offer best value and guarantee quality service.
