The change, prompted in part by Hurricane Sandy, should help improve predictions of severe weather events like winter storms and hurricanes.The change, prompted in part by Hurricane Sandy, should help improve predictions of severe weather events like winter storms and hurricanes.

Wednesday wasn't too hard to take, and Thursday should be one of the nicer days of the entire year with low 70s, low humidity and a gentle breeze. Like something out of a postcard. A surge of warmer, wetter air sparks a few T-storms Friday, and unsettled, showery weather spills into Saturday and at least the first half of Sunday. No all-day rain-outs, but a few hours of showers are possible each day. Not a hot front in sight...Wednesday wasn't too hard to take, and Thursday should be one of the nicer days of the entire year with low 70s, low humidity and a gentle breeze.

Wisconsin snowstorm helps test new weather forecasting model

On Wednesday, June 12th, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration  (NOAA) will be upgrading their flagship model the Global Forecast System (the GFS).

The GFS is a U.S. weather model that covers the entire globe, making it a robust tool for providing guidance to forecasters. The upgrade coming to the GFS will include a new core, called the finite-volume cubed-spere - or FV3. The core can be thought of as the model's 'engine'. Giving this 'engine' an upgrade is a big deal for scientists; it will be the first major upgrade to the model's dynamical core in nearly 40 years!

National Weather Service launches upgraded, improved global forecast model | Duluth News Tribune

When the forecast calls for an umbrella, the prediction is based on the complex calculations of something called the Global Forecasting System. Considered the flagship of the National Weather Service's operations, that system, called the GFS, just got better. Think of it as an engine for weather forecasting. If it were in a vechile, it just transformed from a four-cylinder sedan to an eight-cylinder muscle car.When the forecast calls for an umbrella, the prediction is based on the complex calculations of something called the Global Forecasting System.
