SUBJECT: Soliciting comments on MDL Model Output Statistics

         (MOS) product suite through June 30, 2017             

 

The NWS is soliciting comments on the statistical post-processed

product suite from the Meteorological Development Laboratory

(MDL) through June 30, 2017. MDL provides statistical post-

processed guidance for sensible weather elements such as

reliable probabilities for the full distribution of potential

outcomes, including infrequent events like low visibility, low

ceiling, high winds, and heavy precipitation events. Other

benefits of the MOS include reducing error and removing bias

from the direct model output. 

 

The MDL Statistical Modeling Branch currently produces the

following suite of post-processed guidance:

 

-Gridded Ensemble Kernel Density MOS (EKDMOS)

-EKDMOS Station text

-Gridded Global Forecast System (GFS)-based MOS (GMOS)

-GFS Station MOS (text)

-Localized Aviation MOS Program (LAMP)(text)

-Gridded LAMP (GLMP)

-North American Mesoscale Model (NAM) Station MOS (text).
