COAMPS Visibility Forecast, 4km


Near-real-time 48-hour weather forecasts from the new CeNCOOS COAMPS model run (August 2013 - Present). For older data, look at the COAMPS Forecast [2012 - 2013] layer. The Coupled Ocean/Atmosphere Mesoscale Prediction System, developed and run by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Monterey, CA, is a numerical weather prediction model. This model run has a resolution of 4km and covers the coastal ocean from Oregon to Mexico. Variables available in the CeNCOOS data portal include: Total Precipitation, Visibility, Cloudbase, Air Temperature, Relative Humidity and Wind. Other atmospheric variables and additional altitude layers are available through the GODAE server ie. heat flux, sea level pressure, vorticity, geopotential height.
