Gridded Localized Aviation MOS Program

Background and Status

Gridded LAMP (GLMP) is a new program which provides gridded analyses of observations and operational LAMP forecasts for aviation forecasting. The output grid aligns with the CONUS NDFD grid (#227) at 2.5km. The jobs run hourly on the NCEP CCS, and will run in the parallel job stream for a public comment period. Gridded forecast guidance and gridded observations are currently available for the following elements:

  • 2-meter temperature observations and the associated error estimations
  • 2-meter dewpoint temperature observations and the associated error estimations
  • Ceiling height observations
  • Visibility observations
  • 2-meter temperature forecast guidance
  • 2-meter dewpoint temperature forecast guidance
  • Ceiling height forecast guidance
  • Visibility forecast guidance

Additional elements will follow in time.

Status: GLMP is currently running in the NCEP parallel jobstream. The data and images will be made available starting September 28, 2010, with the 1200 UTC cycle. The data will be sent from NCEP to the experimental NDGD area.

For more information, please refer to the Gridded LAMP documentation page.
