Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Regional Atmospheric Model: CNMI


Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) mesoscale numerical weather prediction model 7-day hourly forecast for the region surrounding the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) at approximately 12-km resolution. Uses the Advanced Research WRF (ARW) dynamical solver developed and maintained by the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Division of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Model runs produced at the University of Hawaii by Yi-Leng Chen.
