Abstract

The recent implementation of changes to the National Meteorological Center's (NMC's) Regional Analysis and Forecast System (RAFS) is described. The changes include an expansion of the innermost grids of the nested-grid model (NGM) and the implementation of the Regional Data Assimilation System (RDAS). The new version of the forecast model and a 3-hourly RDAS analysis system were implemented on 7 August 1991. Some results from tests of the revised forecast model and the combined RDAS/NGM system are presented.

Abstract

The final set of changes to NMC's Regional Analysis and Forecast System (RAFS) is described. The changes include modifications to both the forecast model and the analysis model, as well as development of a Regional Data Assimilation System (RDAS). The forecast model changes were developed to correct a number of known deficiencies in the Nested Grid Model (NGM), while the RDAS development will allow the RAFS to take advantage of the new asynoptic data sets soon to be available. Several of the changes were implemented on 7 November 1990. The remaining changes (including the RDAS) are planned for implementation before mid 1991. Results from tests of the revised forecast model and the combined RDAS/NGM system are presented and discussed.
