NCEP NAM CONVECTIVE FORECASTING PAGE

The current forecast cycle is 00Z 01 Sep with graphics finished at 03:24:18 UTC Mon Sep 1 2014

This page displays 00/12Z NAM model forecasts of convective parameters from the operational 12-km NAM model Some of the newer fields such as 0-1km storm-relative helicity and mixed-layer CAPE are not widely available to the field, so this site offers a chance to examine more model output. Check out a complete documentation of the output from the Eta Post Processor.

NOTE: All displayed winds are in knots. Precipitation values are in inches.

GRIB files from the operational NAM-12 forecast can be found on the NCEP ftp server or at the NWS Gateway server. Descriptions of some of these output files can be found at the EMC NAM Grid Domains page.
