Arizona Regional WRF Model Data
Partial support of the Arizona Regional WRF Model has been obtained from Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. The model runs will continue and the forecast discussions will again be available after July 8, as conditions warrant. However, we continue to need other organizations to step up and help support this project via additional computational resources to add to our new dedicated operational model forecast cluster. This will enable larger domain sizes and faster run time speeds. Hardware nodes start at $7K. If interested, please contact Mike Leuthold. A HUGE thanks goes out to ADEQ for their support.
Model Derived Forecasts
During the monsoon season and for significant weather events, a model discussion may be available.
The Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model is a next-generation mesocale numerical weather prediction system designed to serve both operational forecasting and atmospheric research needs. Model output is generated using the Department's 448 High Performance Computer:
