MODEL SPECIFICS: 

Custom 12km ARW WRF (CMU-WRF)

This WRF model is setup and generated using the ems package through the NWS SOO Science and Technology Resource Center. This custom model is a 12km ARW core model covering the Eastern 2/3′s of the CONUS. The domain can be seen by clicking HERE.

Particulars & Parameterization:

  • Ran twice daily (Beginning at 01z and 13z)
  • 12km Horizontal grid spacing over Eastern 2/3′s of CONUS
  • RAP initialization (Using 00z and 12z)
  • NAM boundary conditions every 3 hours
  • Non-Hydrostatic Dynamics
  • Betts-Miller-Janjic (BMJ) cumulus scheme
  • Morrison Microphysics Double-moment Scheme
  • Mellor-Yamada-Janjic PBL Scheme
  • MYJ Monin-Obukhov Similarity Theory Surface Layer Scheme
