University of Washington Mesoscale Ensemble
Multiple 72-hour forecasts of U.S. Pacific Northwest weather by the non-hydrostatic Weather Research and Forecast mesoscale model (WRF) are produced twice per day at the University of Washington. WRF is a numerical weather prediction model, maintained by the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology Division (NCAR/MMM).
