High-Resolution Forecast Models – HRRR, NAM & AROME
HRRR updates every hour. 00, 06, 12, & 18z runs have a full-length forecast (48h), and the other runs are 18h. The forecast we have is assembled from the most recent run plus the last 30h from the prior full run. This means the cadence is not precisely 60 minutes, as the longer run comes out later. Updates at the same time every hour.
NAM updates every 12h 0300 and 1500 UTC
AROME updates every 12h 0420 & 1620 UTC
