Subject: Updated: Grid points change for the GFS 20km

Pacific Region over NOAAPORT:

Effective March 22, 2017

Updated to correct wording from longitude to latitude

 

The National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) is

making a fix to the Global Forecast System (GFS) model to

correct the number of points in grid 254, Pacific Region,

on NOAAPORT/SBN. This change will correct the latitude from

60N to 65N. The changes will be made starting with the

12 UTC cycle on Wednesday, March 22, 2017.

 

The NOAAPORT 20 km grid (id 254) for Pacific Region will be

modified to correct number of points from 692 to 725 on Nj

(number of points along Y-axis). The grid id 254

specification will be as follows:

 

Current -

grid_20km_pac="10 6 0 0 0 0 0 0 837 692 -45000000

110000000 48 20000000 65720000 270000000 64 0 20000000

20000000

New -
