HRRR Experimental Smoke Model

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Chris for pointing this out to me.  The HRRR is doing a good job of forecasting the smoke from the California fires eastward.  The smoke probably helped some of us avoid 90 the past two days.  Link to experimental web site

I don't know why (probably because I wanted to start this thread) the web site has been down since yesterday.

One of the few times, possibly the only time, that I ever helped. :rolleyes:

Current active wildfires:

Tony, Thanks for sharing the map from NWS Missoula. The map from NWS Missoula is one of the nicer maps of current large wildfires that I have seen. The inciweb website is a good site, I use it all the time for my blog, [https://randomramblingsfromnj.blogspot.com/]. Thanks for sharing that link with us, Tony. The inciweb site is a good way to get information on wildfires. Most of the wildfires that are mapped in inciweb are on federal lands. Wildfires on state-controlled or privately owned lands may (or may not) be mapped. Also some smaller wildfires on federal lands may not be mapped. For example, earlier this week there was a 30 acre wildfire near Wells Nevada, possibly on lands under the control of the Bureau of Land Management that may not have been mapped in inciweb, see the link to my recent blog article below.

Tony, thanks for these links. I’ll check these out later this weekend. Tyler

Tony, I looked at one of the websites for the HRRR experimental smoke model. Noting that this is experimental, is this smoke model a new HRRR model? Or does this experimental model replace an existing HRRR smoke model? See for example this HRRR Smoke Quick Guide which is linked to on the rapidrefreshnoaa page.

Pretty cool model data. Last week while hiking in the Catskills you could the faintest hint of smoke in the sky. All of it has coming east for some time now.

I don't know when this particular model started to be run.  It looks like it uses the data assimilation for the experimental HRRRX model and boundary conditions from the RAP smoke model (which I never knew existed).
