GFS MOS Parallel Evaluation 2007
2007 Parallel GFS MOS Evaluation
The GFS MOS forecast equations have been applied to output from NCEP's parallel runs of the GFS model. A comparative verification was perfomed using parallel GFS and operational GFS MOS guidance from July 1st through October 31st, 2005, and September 1st, 2006 through March 31st, 2007. Warm-season verification scores were calculated from data from July - September, 2005 and September 2006. Cool-season verification scores were calculated from data from October 2005 and October 2006 - March 2007. Verification scores are presented for maximum, minimum, and 2-m temperature, dew point, probability of precipitation (POP), wind speed and direction, total sky cover, ceiling height, and visibility.
