Data provided courtesy of NOAA/NCEP from the 0.25° Global Forecast System (GFS) and the 12 km North American Mesoscale Forecast System (NAM) models.

Plot Descriptions: Top Left: 250-hPa wind barbs with magnitude shaded in knots and heights contoured in geopotential meters. Top Right: 500-hPa absolute vorticty shaded in x10-5 s-1, heights contoured in geopotential meters and winds. Bottom Left: 850-hPa temperature shaded in °C, heights contoured in geopotential meters and winds. Bottom Right: 6-hour accumulated precipitation at the surface shaded in mm, 10-meter wind, and mean sea level pressure contoured in hPa.
