Pacific Northwest Mesoscale Model (MM5) Weather Forecasts

University of Washington, University of Washington

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington is running the Penn State/NCAR mesoscale model version 3.5 (MM5 v3.5) in order to produce high resolution meteorological forecasts for the Pacific Northwest. This site provides data for humidity, temperature, wind velocity, precipitation, and other meteorological measurements. The site displays data from MM5-eta and MM5-GFS models run twice daily. Although this site is a technical site about weather, it provides a large amount of current weather data for the Pacific Northwest.
