This webpage displays forecasts from 2 experimental regional configurations of the Finite-Volume Cubed Sphere (FV3) model at NOAA's Environmental Modeling Center (EMC):
(1) FV3SAR: The 3-km stand-alone regional (SAR) configuration
(2) FV3SAR-X: An experimental version of the SAR, 1 is the control run for this experiment
The regional FV3 configurations run twice a day over the CONUS at 00/12Z out to 60 hours and use GFDL microphysics. Two sets of difference plots are available, comparing the control/experimental runs of the
SAR (1 & 2), and the NAM nest to the SAR (1).
