Subject:  Corrected - Soliciting Comments until July 30, 2014,

          on the Experimental Model Spread/Spectrum

 

Corrected to specify only those CONUS WFOs depicted on the

experimental Enhanced Data Display web site are participating in

this phase of the experimental Model Spread/Spectrum.

 

The NWS is accepting comments until July 30, 2014, on the

experimental Model Spread/Spectrum.

 

The experimental Model Spread/Spectrum provides a more complete

picture of the weather forecast by showing the range of model

possibilities. The variability of the models is related to the

amount of confidence in a forecast. A low model spread generally

means higher confidence, while a large model spread implies

lower confidence. You can use this product to make a more

informed decision. There are also options to choose the NWS

forecast if you feel uncomfortable with your interpretation.

 

The experimental Model Spread/Spectrum is available online only

for those CONUS Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) depicted on the

experimental Enhanced Data Display (EDD) at: 

 

  http://preview.weather.gov/edd

 

The button labeled Model Spread can be found under the Quick

Layers menu on the left hand side.

Spread/Spectrum is available online at:

Please submit comments to the following link:

 

  http://www.nws.noaa.gov/survey/nws-survey.php?code=NPQRMS

 

Comments will be collected until July 30, 2014. At that time,

the NWS will evaluate feedback to determine whether to

transition the Model Spread/Spectrum to operational status as a

National Product, discontinue it, or revise and extend the

experimental feedback period.
