THE STAFF WANT YOU TO JOIN US AT PHILLYWX!!!

Register as a member today, and become part of the Delaware Valley weather community!

Our pro and seasoned amateur meteorologists, and weather enthusiasts from around the PA and NJ area together form a great group discussion, and we're asking folks that read our site today to register as members and post along with us!

Don't be intimidated if you're not an expert, ask questions if you're curious or want to build your knowledge!

I wanted to link the WRF model output (that I maintain in my spare time) from the RUCOOL group at Rutgers.

 

Focused on the Philly area:

 

9km (0-84 hrs) based on the 00Z GFS

 

3km (0-48 hrs) based on the 9km WRF + RAP initial conditions

 

1km (24-48 hrs, day 2) based on the 3km WRF + RAP initial conditions

 

Grib files are also available on the site for the 9km and 3km simulations!

 

The model used a state of the art cloud clearing SST algorithm that is applied to MODIS SSTs.  The resulting SST resolution is 2km, which is far higher than is available in the operational models.  Higher resolution SSTs = better sea breeze & offshore storm modeling!

and the primary lab website, filled with many COOL research and operational projects, is located at:

Lou, I'm gonna add this to the models tab at the top of our page if that's alright. Never knew about the models on this site. Really great stuff.
