Gridded Model Output Statistics (MOS)
Experimental 2.5km Grids



Files may be unavailable due to machine switches on NCEP WCOSS. These files are generated via MDL users' crons, not from the operational job stream. Delays in job completion and file availability are to be expected when NCEP switches production machines.


NOTE TO USERS: Some COOP sites have been removed from 2.5 km MaxT/MinT analyses. Please click here for more information.

Jump to: Element-Specific Images | GRIB2 Download via TGFTP | Sitemap

Users who need the GRIB2 files containing all elements in a single file can find them here. However, these GRIB2 files are not monitored 24/7 and may be disrupted during NCEP production machine switches



Element-Specific Images

The table below has links to view images for each element. If the element is RED and not a link, then the images for that element are either missing or in the process of being created. New images are created twice daily and may be unavailable around 2:45 AM EDT for 0000 UTC cycle and 2:45 PM EDT for 1200 UTC cycle.

Images were generated from the following model cycle: 20140420 1200 UTC

Future Improvements

The table below has links to additional pages for each future GMOS element. These pages include forecast images for various elements, FAQs, and reference information.

The National Weather Service's Meteorological Development Laboratory is soliciting public comments by December 6, 2013 on the GFS-based Gridded MOS Precipitation Type and Predominant Weather. Comments are encouraged and can be submitted by taking our survey.
